Jo Buick






All of Jo's community classes and self-care trainings now run under the organisation State of Being. 

State of Being is a newly formed community organisation based in Melbourne, Australia. Our mission is to make the tools of yoga, mindfulness and self-care practices available to and inclusive of everyone in our community. As such, we are committed to our local community here in Melbourne, and to understanding the diverse needs of its people. 

Our yoga and mindfulness programs utilise strengths-based, somatic, trauma-informed and inclusive approaches. Our Program Teachers are trained yoga and meditation facilitators, with diverse specialisations including social work, education, recovery, and community development work.

We partner with community organisations, schools, health providers and not-for-profits to create programs that meet local needs.
