I’ve spent the past four days coming to her meditation studio in Midtown. Amongst the chaos of NYC, she’s taught me to meditate. I feel calmer and happier than I have in years.

  In Brooklyn, with Tiny, my Yorkshire Terrier.

Joh Jarvis teaches Vedic Meditation in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Melbourne and Sydney. She began practising meditation in 2006 while working as a Media Executive at ABC Radio, Australia. Overwhelmed with anxiety and insomnia due to high levels of stress associated with her job, she took a friend's advice and learned Vedic Meditation.  

After practising the technique for seven years she trained to become a meditation instructor with Sydney-based Vedic Meditation teacher, Tim Brown. 


Joh has taught Vedic Meditation to a broad range of clients. They include chief executives, journalists, media producers, a former US Open and Wimbledon tennis champion, a young amateur golf champion, plumbers, fashion models, film makers, senior bureaucrats, personal trainers, a family friend who was seriously ill in hospital andad even her handy man.  

Many were seeking better sleep, some wanted to be sharper and more productive, some wanted relief from anxiety and depression, and greater peace. All wanted to better deal with stress.  

Joh is continually updating her knowledge and skills. She is currently undergoing a three-year course with the Centre for Intentional Living, Connecticut.

While Joh's main focus is teaching meditation, she continues to draw from her career as a journalist producing stories, including a series of interviews she conducted across the US with affluent supporters of President Donald Trump. Her reporting and photography has appeared in the Guardian, US, ABC News, Australia, House and Garden magazine and News.com.au . You can view some of her work here.

Joh spent more than 20 years at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in a variety of high profile and senior roles including as a journalist, media executive and news program executive producer.
