About your Host

Josey Prior has been practicing yoga for 8 years. At only 17 years old she had the dream of becoming a teacher popping into her head while she practiced. She received her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification and Yin Yoga Teacher Training Certification in 2016 from Yoga Lab in Naples, Florida and has spent every day since practicing, teaching, thinking about and learning about yoga! Having gone to college for fine arts Josey loves to bring a bit of creativity into her classes - she believes you should never take yoga too seriously. Although her training is Ashtanga based she puts her own twist on her classes whether they are Vinyasa, Hatha or Yin. She has taught everywhere from gyms to yoga studios to yoga festivals. In January 2018 she became a teacher for Om Stars - an online yoga platform created by world famous yoga teacher Kino McGregor. She is extremely excited and grateful to now teach and host retreats at Balance Spa and Yoga Studio at Mahogany Bay Resort in San Pedro, Belize.
