pronouns: she/they [transponder of energy, shapeshifter of form]
Welcome! I tend to connect with people who are experiencing a perspective shift – when what’s moving within doesn’t feel like it is in synch with their surroundings, or other aspects within anymore. When you experience a shift within a mental, emotional, physical, spiritual aspect of self, you may wish for some additional support and guidance, when needed to navigate all that is occurring in the here now of your energy levels, body sensations, mental patterns, and ratio of comfort to discomfort. I also grow our connection over time & space, with boundaries honoured, to support when needed.
We are transmuters, energy alchemists. We have the ability to grow awareness and sensitivity to the movements within and out of our current perspectives carried. Perspectives share knowing, as well as our body shares remembrance of all that is known. We can then transmute how we work/play/rest with the mix. We work sometimes to divine(define) aspects of self(SPirit) energy to feel more comfortable to explore our wondrous capabilities that can bring more harmony and joy. We can journey into the roots of the earth and our branches in the sky. We can find our center, and discover over time, and at our own pace, how we are capable of healing, mending, and growth. We carry the power of choice, and we can clarify our body-mind-heart for more resounding response – YES! NO! Honouring choice and consent all ways.
I am a fellow alchemist. I am also words that may trigger responses, memories/responses in body and more.
I am a transponder, a transmuter, a transducer. A witch, seer, tree spirit, and more, conversing with the element(all)s. Connector of self with spirit (and to even say that I have had to transmute the ancestral witch wound for over 20 years of this life).
A genderfluid bisexual wild(weird). A womb-carrier, a womb(and) m(ore). Part deer, bird, bee, horse, puma, and snake. Part child, m(other), crone.
I bring with me over 22 years of experience moving with energy of self and spirit, which includes space, stars, earth, body, all. I was brought up in a household that taught me meditation, mantra, yoga and creative expression (painting, dance, singing, writing). I then went into study, then teach yoga asana & meditation for well over 14 years. I studied extensively anatomy, mobility, subtle energy, breathwork, body in movement, and more. The years prior are from other lifelines of knowing, from ancestors, healers, ancients and more. I have worked within multiple realms for quite a long time.
I was introduced to Reiki energy in this lifetime, which shared energy memory as I moved to levels 1, 2, 3/Masters (teachers), and then taught Reiki for 7 years. I have recently studied more of my access to energy & sprit sound medicine. I have opened my body, flame, and blood to transmit the ancients, medicine beings, and more. I continue to learn with world indigenous elders and shamans, I have joruneyed up the mountain with the mentorship of Nukumi Selina Mu for 2 years and extend deep gratitude and love for her medicine received. My current mentors and helpers include the animals & plants I connect with. The trees, earth and it’s waters. Our stars and elder planets. The elements. Mmore. Deep gratitude for all that share such loving support and connections with us all!
A studio is a space for creativity, art, movement, expression, work, and play. All of it! From having worked in studios worldwide, I welcome forwards a braver and safer space for you to come as you are. All of you is welcome for online movement, meditation, and circle connections. As a mixed heritage queer being, I wish to celebrate my BIPOC LGBTQIA2S+ siblings and cultivate a space together that welcomes our choices, pace, needs, and boundaries. I (pr)offer online weekly classes, monthly group circle, trainings & workshops, as well as 1&1 work/play sessions.
“I’ve worked with and have been healed by Josie for over 12 years. Through distance and time she has remained absolutely her: the most authentic being I’ve encountered through many years of the yoga & psychiatric spaces wherein a true human is hard to come by. Josie has not only educated me physically but has helped me emotionally through some of the most trying moments of my life, each time turning up with a smile. There is no one I could recommend more if you’re in need of a teacher / friend / mediator. It’s almost impossible to write about her because words do not do her justice.”

“My sessions with Josie have been abundantly healing and transforming. She creates a really sacred safe space where I always feel comfortable and accepted sharing with her. Her guidance and healing tools have been a tremendous help along my journey, always knowing just what my spirit needs. Josie has helped me take back my own power, always reminded me that I am my own healer and provided an immense amount of support, tools and genuine care along the way. if it weren’t for our sessions together I truly don’t know where i would be – and for that i am eternally grateful!–“
