Jo Woollacott is a yoga instructor with over 40 years experience. She is owner of WHY Retreat in New Zealand, running yoga and hiking retreats. As a holistic health coach, Jo's life journey began with her own journey to better health, and intensified during her husband's 7 year battle with cancer.

Her passion for travel and adventure extends across continents – from North America to Europe, Asia Pacific, including 2 years in Mexico, and 20 transformative years having lived on a sailboat built by herself and her husband. Her life has been a unique blend of tranquility and adventure.

Jo's intuitive teaching style harmoniously merges many types of yoga - Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, Yoga Therapy, and meditation to accommodate all levels. Combining her passion for yoga and travel she loves to teach in other locations and is excited to be part of the Copal Retreat in Mexico.
