Jocelyn began her yoga journey just three years ago when she used the ancient practice to heal herself physically, emotionally, and spiritually after a number of difficult transitions. She discovered all the hot yoga benefits. After reaping the benefits of slowing down, tuning into the sensations of the body, and fully experiencing each movement, Jocelyn was hooked. She wanted to dive deeper into yoga culture and received her 200-hour certification through Marianne Wells Yoga School in Costa Rica during January of 2016. She is truly honored to be able to share the gift of yoga with others.
