Harvesting food from nature and eating by the seasons for great health


A conscious blog on yoga, holistic health
and natural living


Change your health and lifestyle through natural 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.

Bringing ancient wisdom into modern day living, Jo uses the tools of holistic nutrition, sustainable and natural living and the teachings of yoga to help you achieve a healthy mind and body whilst living sustainably.

This is achieved through her one on one consults, wellness retreats, workshops, speaking, blogging and daily life from her own organic small farm on Bruny Island, Tasmania where she enjoys growing her own food.

Through this wellness hub, Jo writes and advocates on real food nutrition, holistic health & well-being, natural & sustainable living.

Jo believes that there is no perfection or one way of doing things in learning about better ways to live a healthier, happier and sustainable life. We are all different, with different circumstances. The goal of Primal Living is to help you to gain greater knowledge and to feel more empowered; to enable you to make positive changes to support you in your own journey of sustainable health and wellbeing.

Welcome to Primal Living where you will be supported and inspired to take on a natural, healthy and sustainable life
