Jo Lynn Skelton

I was born and raised in Greenville, SC and didn't start practicing yoga until I was in my early forties. I walked into a class one day at my gym and am still there. The perfect instructor came into my life and encouraged me to do more with my practice and suggested I become an instructor. 8 1/2 years later I am still instructing and love every minute. My only wish Is that I could have found yoga in my teens or twenties. I point out to my classes that you're never too young or too old to practice yoga and it's unlike anything else you will ever do. Although temporarily sidelined by eye surgery, I will continue my work this year in Asheville on my 300 hour certification. I am so excited to be a part of the Southern Om family and look forward to meeting each and every one of you.
