Josiane O’Rourke

Josiane O’Rourke Urban Yoga Wellington NZJosiane has been practicing yoga since 2008. In 2010 she completed her yoga teacher training in Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin yoga in Montreal, Canada, where she is originally from. Through teaching and practicing yoga, Josiane sees every day the benefits that this discipline brings to people committed to leading active lives.

Since 2012, she has been teaching SUP yoga (a yoga practice on water done with large paddle boards). She has guided yoga retreats in Costa Rica and Mexico, and collaborated on major yoga events like Wanderlust in Mont-Tremblant in 2013 and the Yocomo festival in 2014 and 2015. More recently, in 2014, she began studying Yoga Thai massage at the Lotus Palm school, which led her to get a level 4 accreditation (incl 250 hours of practice).

When Josiane is not practicing yoga on solid ground or on water, she enjoys writing and spending time with her loved ones, in nature, travelling, hiking, or doing all this at once!  

By sharing her passion, she strives to promote wellness around her and hopes it will spread!

Josiane teaches regular classes, courses and specialty workshops at Urban Yoga, including facilitating our popular Therapy Ball Workshops.
