Loretta Jo, E-RYT500, YACEP, RYS200, left the corporate world in March 2014 to follow her passion as a yogi-preneur. She is dedicated to teaching and connecting through yoga and helping students and teachers use the practice of yoga as a means for personal and professional transformation. She is happily obsessed with exploring and sharing yoga and is a recognized master of yoga sequencing. Each class is designed to provide students an opportunity to seek a balance of mind, body and spirit – and each practice is unique, enabling students to build stamina, increase physical strength, improve concentration, and build confidence — what Loretta Jo calls ‘Yoga-Mojo’ — the magic of yoga. As an advanced yoga teacher with more than 9,000 teaching hours, Loretta Jo’s classes include purposeful movement with attention to alignment and modification options. Her personal journey includes the love of mantra, mudras and yoga mythology and her classes often include a story – or two.
In May, 2014, Loretta Jo opened The Yoga-Mojo Studio at Long Life Wellness Center (LLWC), a heart-centered cooperative of holistic practitioners located in Cary, NC.
If Loretta is not at The Yoga-Mojo Studio, you may find her in Cary providing the Yoga-Mojo Studio experience at O2 Fitness Clubs where she’s been teaching yoga since 2006. While Cary is her home, Loretta Jo supports many yoga studios and students across North Carolina as a guest teacher. When at the NC Coast, Loretta teaches classes, workshops and Yoga Teacher Training at Momentum Yoga in Morehead City.
Loretta Jo is the founder of Yoga-Mojo. She earned her 220-hour YTT with EmbodiYoga™ and her 500-hour with Stephanie Keach, Asheville Yoga Center and began teaching in June 2006. In addition, Loretta Jo received a Certificate of Completion in “Integrative Yoga for Seniors” from Duke Integrative Medicine in 2014 and became certified in Thai Yoga in 2018. A Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT500) with the Yoga Alliance®, Loretta Jo continues to extend her knowledge of Yoga and has taken workshops/intensives with: Sianna Sherman, Seane Corn, Rod Stryker, Doug Keller, Gabriel Halpern, Sarah Powers, David Swenson, Matthew Sweeney, David Keil, Shala Worsley, Dr. David Frawley, Shambhavi Chopra, Sadie Nardini, Kathryn Budig, Nicki Doane, Jason Crandell, Leslie Kaminoff, Rolf Gates and other teachers in the US and abroad.
