Harvesting food from nature and eating by the seasons


A conscious blog on yoga, health
and sustainability


Change your health and lifestyle through yoga, nutrition and sustainability

What We Do

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

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

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 consciously.

This is achieved through her one on one consults, programs, workshops, speaking, blogging and the on going creation of her organic 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 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 growing food, living sustainably and mindfully. Creating a conscious life around sustainability creates healthy communities and a healthy environment.  We welcome you to be a part of it.
