Jodi is the founder, owner and principal teacher at Bala. Bala is the result of Jodi’s dream to bring a contemporary form of yoga, with its far reaching emotional and physical benefits to a new group of adventures. Jodi started practicing yoga over 18 years ago, to help control her asthma and enhance her sporting performance. When her career path led to television it was yoga that helped her cope with the stress and pressures typical of the industry. Yoga gradually became part of her life. She then went on to train and teach in Australia, Taiwan, NZ, Bali, Venezuela and Brazil, the diversity of these countries and cultures helped her develop a strong understanding of the various yoga traditions and let to the eventual development of Bala. Trained through Yoga Arts under the guidance of Louisa Sear, Jodi has a focus on a strong asana practice, pranayama and yoga therapy. She continues to develop her own practice and evolve her awareness in every facet of yoga. She lives in Beaumaris with her husband Roger and two beautiful daughters, Tyler and Kalani.
