Senior Assistant to Yin Yoga founder, Paul Grilley
Jo Phee is a senior trainer for Yin Yoga teachers around the world. A long-time student and senior teaching assistant to Yin Yoga founders, Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers, Jo was one of the first Yin Yoga teachers trained by Paul and Sarah 12 years ago.
To date, she has spent up to 2500 hours of study apprenticeship with them, and was personally tutored by Paul to teach his entire teacher training curriculum. She continues to receive teaching mentorship with them every year and updates her teaching curriculum according to their latest offerings. With 17 years of yoga experience, Jo has accumulated more than 10,000 hours of teaching public Yin classes before she became a full time travelling teacher.
Brought up solely with Chinese Medicine from childhood by her Taoist parents, Jo has been familiar with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) all her life. All of her initial education on TCM was based on practical knowledge passed down from generations in her Chinese family. To add theoretical basis to her personal experience, Jo went on to study at the Singapore College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine. She has completed an Acupuncture Meridians course with Dr Susan Stumpf and has studied Medical Qigong with Master Tan Soo Kong.
Driven by a profound interest in functional anatomy and fascial studies, Jo has been attending human cadaver dissection labs every year in the United States and Europe. She has performed numerous full body dissections, including a dedicated neuroanatomical dissection of the brain and spinal cord, and has had the opportunity to study up to 30 cadaver specimens to date. Jo obtained her Myofascial Release Therapy training in the USA and has studied with renowned scientists and anatomists in the fascia field in America and Europe. She has attended fascia school twice, at the Ulm University Germany and the Anatomical Institute of Leipzig University. She has recently participated in the 4th International Fascia Research Congress held in Washington DC. Jo is a founding member of the Fascia Research Society, where she is constantly kept up-to-date with the latest science and education in fascia research.
Jo’s teachings are a blend of the science of Western Anatomy fused with Eastern Medicine and Philosophy. She resides in Singapore but spends majority of the year traveling around the world delivering Yin Yoga Teacher Training programs. She has taught more than 60 Yin Yoga Teacher Trainings around the world.
