After more than 600 hours of yoga training since 2015 and lots of teaching, Jo founded Grace x Strength in 2017 from a burning passion to help people experience yoga as a way to deliver strength, balance, healing and spiritual depth – a discerned calling from God.  She also serve as the Australian Regional Leader on the Global Leadership team of Holy Yoga, the yoga school that she trained with.

She started her career as a digital marketer and held leadership roles with a number of global technology and media businesses before entering into a different season of life with the birth of her children. The joys and challenges of adapting to motherhood and career has fuelled her passion to empower women in business and wellness.

what people are saying about Josephine Tin Oi Lau

Julia Lin, Floristry Business Owner at IttyBlooms.com.au

What an amazing class Jo holds every time! A great reminder of things I should be practicing everyday not only physically but mentally as well as spiritually. Highly recommended for those who want a little more than just a yoga practice with added Holiness.

Mabel Lam, Retiree

Today is my 3rd lesson in Holy Yoga. I found it amazingly good physically, mentally and spiritually. How good is that we can relax, worship our God while doing exercise. I was having a very bad headache from yesterday but it has totally gone after the lesson. Every time when I came back from Holy Yoga, my husband said he could easily tell from my face and asked me to do it everyday.

Rejeanne Balarin, Homemaker

Thank you, Jo for such an awesome class this morning. Such a blessing to incorporate fellowship and a workout! You are an incredibly anointed lady and I cannot wait for the next class. Thank you.

Julie Tan, Stay-At-Home Mum

I attended Jo's Holy Yoga class last week and I felt very happy after the class. Not only did I exercised and did some really good stretches, I also got to meditate on God's word! Jo started the class with reading out the verse from the Bible, Colossians 3:12-14 and asked us to mediate the words that stood out to us. Through out the class Jo reminded us of God's grace and love for us and that our body is the temple of God, therefore it is important for us to give thanks to God and take care of our bodies. I could really feel the sense of Holy Spirit filled in the room! It was an amazing experience! Thank you Josephine Lau for such a wonderful class and customizing the class for me, the stretches really help me loosen my tight shoulders.

Mary Ramirez, Digital Business Owner

For me, more than yoga is the spiritual connection of my body, my soul and my faith in God. No matter what religion you are in, this class is the fulfilment of my week for my day-to-day challenges. Jo is a blessing and illuminated spiritual person that brings light to my life and make my way on earth better and better ... Now I can't live without Holy Yoga!

Fideliz Cruz, Personal Stylist & Life Coach at FidelizCruz.com

Absolutely loved my Holy Yoga Class! Such a refreshing experience! I loved that we were able to reflect on God's wordthroughout the class and enjoy His presence through the music and the movements. it was my first yoga experience and i am in love! Thank God for Holy Yoga Australia! This is just what we need! with such a busy life style and so many things going on these days, Holy Yoga is a must! Thank you Jo!

Pia O'Connell, IT Executive

I thoroughly enjoyed my first yoga class with Jo. Life can be quite hectic sometimes and having a chance to meditate on God's words while doing yoga poses that is good for the body, I think, is an awesome combination and something that I am looking forward to doing on a regular basis. We had the class on a Sunday afternoon and it was definitely a great way to end the week and get myself ready for the following week both physically and spiritually. I highly recommend Jo's holy yoga class!

Cristina Yumul, Account Manager

Jo is indeed a heaven sent! For ages, I have been on numerous try outs to keep myself fit and healthy, however it didn't appeal that much to get my commitment towards continuing on until I have been in Holy Yoga. I have tried the initial class, and with that one hour - it felt eternity and had regained my sanity! You get to exercise in the form of yoga, be able to meet new people, a highly positive environment, an escape from the crazy world, and the most is you get to reconnect yourself with God - i guess it did tick all the boxes for me! Really looking forward to the classes - so now I say bring it on Sunday!

Cheryl Lee, Beautician, Life Coach & Business Owner

Thank you beautiful Jo for an amazing Holy Yoga class. It is a wonderful journey to look within ourself, aligning our physical body and reconnect with God. Thanking Him for what he provided us and seeking His guidance for what is yet to come. It was a totally relaxing and happy experience!!

Peggy Tam, Homemaker

What a wonderful way to train ourself in both spiritually & physically at the same time.

Alvia Banzato, Teacher, Celebrant

I love holy yoga Jo is so dedicated and a lot of fun, although she works you hard!

Naoko Watarai, Floristry Teacher & Business Owner at Flower Stories

I enjoy Jo's class so very much! I love the great feeling after practicing Yoga with her. Thanks a lot for your love & kindness and an effort you put into each class.

Amy Chan, Hair & Makeup Artist at Amy Chan Hair & Makeup

Super relaxed and easy going class. No pressure on getting it right the first time, each pose is explained, corrected and practiced a few time to ensure we dont hurt ourselves. Highly recommend Jo especially those trying it out for the first time, love it!

Linda Hemmings-Cooke, Early Childhood Teacher

Thanks so much for today Jo it was definitely worth the trip down from the central coast. I loved your Holy Yoga class as it stretched me physically but also stretched me spiritually as I focussed on your Bible verse about God's love for me and how I can demonstrate his love to my children.

Jenny Kuk, Homemaker

We tried the class today and all enjoyed it so much, Jo is a great teacher and very clear instructions for all levels, plus the use of Bible verses during the lesson , a total workout, inside out.

Alyssa Mak, Pilates Instructor

Attended Jo's class last week and loved how she encouraged us to grow as an individual, go out there to love others and as she encouraged me through meditation, she also conducted a good workout and stretch leaving me feeling refreshed physically, mentally and spiritually !

Helen Mison, Social Marketer at Modere

Jo is a beautiful spirit filled Holy Yoga teacher and a very special person with a massive heart. Her class is guided with clear instructions, a supportive & stimulating environment. I am very grateful to have attended her class whilst visiting Sydney and am very inspired to share similar Holy yoga concepts in my classes. I highly recommend Jo's classes to you to open your deeper spiritually!

Roxy, Founder of Salt + Glow

I love Holy Yoga with Jo! She is clear with her directions and caters the class to all levels of students. During the classes, she constantly encourages me to keep expanding my capacity physically, mentally and spiritually. I really enjoyed how she would use a verse from the Bible or a quote to meditate on during the classes and keep reminding us of the intention within the different poses practiced. Holy Yoga gives me whole new way to have quiet devotion time and draw deep from God.

Chanel Lam, Financial Analyst

I enjoyed my classes with Jo. She is an excellent instructor, extremely well experienced and most importantly she looks after each of her students. Highly recommended.

Navlina Kalra, Dance Teacher

Josephine's class is wonderful, she has assisted me in breathing, alignment and postures. Her class is mentally and spiritually enhancing. Jo is a sincere individual who goes out of her way to help anyone. I recommend her class to everyone!

Joanne Tweedie, Brand Manager

Jo is an annointed leader in the Australian and global yoga community, both on and off the mat, and you will be so blessed by her teaching. Yoga means 'union' and Jo brings an truly annointed union of heart, mind, soul and strength to her practice, and will gently guide you to do the same through her inspirational teaching. Jo brings strength, grace and creativity to her sequencing - you will be nourished and enriched physically, emotionally and spiritually by her classes. Through Jo's pure love of the practice you will be encouraged to find new joy and freedom on the mat, I can't wait for you to experience it!!!

Carol Yee, Brand Manager

Josephine's yoga classes are perfect for all levels. She leads her classes well at a good, calming pace and has a great knack for making each student feel comfortable but stretched at the same time. Jo is a great yoga practitioner of course, but what I particularly like about Jo's classes is that I walk out feeling very relaxed but energized every time!

Rachel Pann, Yoga Teacher

Having helped Jo in some of her Holy Yoga lessons at Wesley Mission, I am blown away by the authenticity and care she shows to her students. Jo's knowledge of Chair Yoga and her ability to beautifully interweave bible teachings and values into her yoga lessons are remarkable. It was clear that she has earned the love and respect of her students, because of her genuineness in helping her students. I would definitely recommend practising with her if you have the chance to
