Josephin is truly the queen of hands-on assist! Her approach is a perfect blend of knowledge, precision, and an undeniable touch of magic. – Jenny

Josephin is not just an exceptional teacher; she’s the ninja of hands-on assist, infusing the learning experience with humor that keeps every class enjoyable. Under her mentorship, I mastered hands-on assist, gained newfound confidence and every time I teach I hear her voice saying, ‘In and out like a ninja,’ which always puts a smile on my face. -Tilda

Josephin’s hands-on assist training transformed my approach to yoga. Before, poses with rotation felt challenging, but now, I move like a ninja naturally. Yoga Folks’ guidance, especially Josephin’s empowering feedback, elevated my teaching. Being part of this community is indescribable – it’s the best part of my yoga journey! HELL YEAH! -Filippa

Josephin’s training empowered me to overcome self-doubt and fear of touch in teaching. Now, I confidently provide a deeper yoga experience. Yoga Folks’ open classes and mentorship, especially in biomechanics, have been invaluable. The community is fun, caring, and spiritually enriching – truly the best part of my yoga journey! -Karolina
