Change your health and lifestyle through nutrition, yoga and sustainable living

What We Do

Jo is a holistic health, wellness and natural living educator.  With a passion to teach and inspire you to eat, think and live well to achieve sustainable health, well-being and happiness.

Jo’s mission through Primal Living is to create and cultivate a community around sustainable and practical wellness.  A conscious valued based approach to leading a healthy and meaningful life for everyday people.

Jo focuses on using simple, practical and guilt free approaches in helping people to feel inspired and empowered to find their own answers to eating, thinking and living well.

Using the tools of holistic nutrition, sustainable and natural living and the teachings of yoga, Jo helps you to achieve a healthy mind and body whilst living sustainably.

This is achieved through her one on one consults, retreats, programs, workshops, speaking, blogging and the on going creation of her organic wellness and self-sufficient farm on Bruny Island.

Jo writes and advocates on nutrition, holistic health & well-being, natural & sustainable living, social change and her very own experiences on Primal Farm. The concepts that you discover with Jo will reveal the inter-relationships between your wellness, nutrition, sustainability and the practice of yoga.  Jo believes that the greater the knowledge you hold as an individual, the more empowered you are to make positive changes to your own health and well-being and the sustainability of the planet.

Primal Living is committed to an integrated life of health & wellness, living sustainably and mindfully. Jo welcomes you to be a part of it.
