Jolie has been teaching for over 15 years, and 2021 will be her 9th year leading and organizing YTT's or movement based education programs. Her company YogaKoh has graduated hundreds of students and can truly say she is most fulfilled by the shared experience of learning new discoveries of the mind and body.
Her first yoga influences came from her father, a spiritual man, who challenged her mind from a young age with yogic based philosophies and meditation. She grew up in Boulder, Colorado where she spent her youth studying dance and practicing yoga, which culminated in receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance and movement studies from University of Colorado.
She spent 8 years in New York City as a dancer and performer and during this time she studied with a myriad of outstanding yoga teachers, deepening her knowledge of different traditions including: Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Ashtanga, and The Yoga Works Method. She also worked as a master trainer for The Tracy Anderson Method, which kick-started her journey and love of travel as she crossed the world training.
After years in the city, she ventured to Bali to further her education and explore what South East Asia had to offer. She connected with the culture immediately, returning yearly, soon to call it home. It was here she pioneered one of the top Teacher Training programs on the island and built her company YogaKoh, an internationally recognized yoga school that offers yoga teacher trainings, continuing education courses, retreats, and workshops.
She became a mama to her daughter Gia Hope in late 2019, and that transformational experience has been the birth of YogaKoh's Pre and Postnatal training programs. Woman's health and education around it is an area that she has become dedicated in pursuing and providing for others.
Her classes blend her love for the strong physical practice inspired by the West, with the spiritually rich traditions inspired by her time in the East. Her love for anatomy, energetics and philosophy inspire her continued studies and she is thrilled to be in a place to share and receive knowledge with such an incredibly community of people!
