Josianne has been fascinated by the mysterious nature of life and its occult mysteries since her teenage years. After initially practising yoga from a book she found whilst living in South East Asia in 1997, she quickly realised that the effects of the practice were much more than those found only on the physical body. In 1999 she travelled to India to find a yoga teacher to gain a deeper understanding of her experiences and learn what Yoga really is.
