Telluride will always have a special place in my heart. It’s where I found myself, the love of my life, amazing friends, and my passion for yoga and the mountains. After living there for two years, I decided to take my adventures to Salt Lake City UT. I am a 200 Hour RYT and Certified SUP Yoga Instructor. I have a passion for living with intention, and helping others be the best version of themselves. In my free time I love to cook plant-based meals, take my puppy for hikes in the Wasatch, hangout with my plants, and study Holistic Health.
A yoga teacher, photographer and mom, Brandi Josjor lives in Kearney, Nebraska and spends summers raveling to shows and festivals sharing her passions. She was called to the practice for the physical benefits, but quickly realized that asana was just one of the limbs that made up yoga. She continues to share this practice with others teaching, sharing her experiences, and inviting those who are up for it to join her! This will be Brandi’s second year in Telluride and last year was life changing. She cannot wait to be back!
