Yoga + Meditation

an experiential approach to holistic healing with Josh Blatter

We are growing up


In the process of this ever changing world, this website too, shall shift. I have decided to drop “yoga” from the end of the domain name and move all of our content to I feel that yoga is too limiting to the scope of my offerings and the new site will give greater freedom. I am using the term yoga loosely with asana here because that is how it is most often perceived in the West. Yoga is just one of the many tools that we have to create a life of more depth and meaning. Often, we get too drawn into this one little piece and it hinders further development of greater awakening. We use yoga to ‘track the ox’ but it stops there. My hope is that as my site grows, all of you will grow with it and find all that you are seeking.

Welcome to Josh Blatter Yoga



“My goal is to utilize the tools of yoga, conscious breathing and meditation to support individuals in their pursuit of health, well being and happiness. In doing so we make the body and mind fit for self reflection and insight bearing wisdom.”

Josh Blatter is a sought after yoga and meditation instructor in San Diego, California. He is best known for his artful sequencing, pacifying presence, depthless wisdom and unequivocal understanding of the human body and spirit. Josh yields a humble approach in the way in which he holds space and is constantly inspiring others to grow and learn. His classes are a very dynamic blend that exemplify his background in the practice and studies in Southern India; imbued with vinyasa-esque flow, refined alignment, conscious breathing, mindful meditation, visualization, sound, subtle body awareness and rich with a modern flair on ancient philosophy.

Josh was born in Fairfield, CT but moved to Santa Barbara, CA at the age of 9 – living there until going away to college. Josh moved to San Diego from Boulder, CO in 2006. He attained his bachelor’s in business management and marketing from the University of Colorado. Josh is a trained chef and restauranteur, advocating eating healthy, fresh, and local foods. Josh is always sharing his love of food and can regularly be found offering cooking classes and catering for local wellness facilities.

Josh’s journey began years ago, but it was not until 2009 that his path crossed with yoga. Initially he only saw yoga as a remedy for his many years of injuries from skateboarding, snowboarding, and BMX, but yoga turned into something far greater. Almost instantly, all his aches and pains that he had carried with him were gone; they simply vanished. Next though, came the real icing on the cake-the true discovery of the transformative powers of yoga. As a chef, he noticed the dishes that he was creating went from good to incredible. As a snowboarder, his riding reached a new caliber, and Josh discovered the world around him shaping into exactly how he envisioned it. It was as if the floodgates opened and his true path to self-attainment began. Josh wants to share with his students the amazing powers that yoga has to offer – whether it is the physical, the mental, the spiritual, or any combination. He believes in making yoga tangible to everyone because of his adamant belief in the power of the practice. Josh understands that often the hardest part of yoga is walking in the studio door for the first time, having to overcome one’s own fears and misconceptions. He will make that a warm, natural and inviting experience for everyone regardless of their level of experience, and then guide each unique individual in their journey to find their inner-self, balance, strength, and healing.

Josh teaches a variety of classes for all levels of students. He is an innovator in his craft; always evolving, constantly learning and sharing his insight and wisdom. You will always leave Josh’s classes and workshops feeling inspired physically, mentally and spiritually, by his ability to intertwine you, your body, breath and mind. The use of simple yet profound language encapsulated in his cuing, coupled with his deep understanding of structural anatomy and ability to approach yoga theory with real life experiences, allows Josh to bring you to realms of the practice not experienced before. Josh received his 200 Hour RYT Training from Corepower Yoga, and furthered his education studying under many master teachers/educators such as Chase Bossart, Tias Little, Seane Corn, Baron Baptiste, and Roger Cole. He served an apprenticeship under Dennis Dean and recently returned from living in India studying the teachings of T.K.V. Desikachar at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram.

Art of Attention

What does it mean to pay attention? From a very young age we are expected to pay attention but have we ever really been taught how to be attentive? I don’t believe it is too far from the truth to say the answer is ‘no’. Approximately 11% of children 4-17 years of age (6.4 million) […]
