Josi Perez was born in Coral Gables, Florida to immigrant Cuban parents. She is the youngest of three girls and understands the challenges and rewards of hard work and dedication. Despite the many challenges she saw her parents endure, she grew-up in a home where unconditional love was above all else. While growing up she moved and traveled often and today is grateful for all of her cultural experiences. Her most memorable was growing up in Haiti. There she was able to learn the value of simple joys, nature, and the essence of good people.
Josi returned to Miami, Florida as a teenager where she attended high school, college and married. She made her career in banking and worked the “corporate grind” for 25 years as vice president, bank manager, marketing and community affairs. After being “displaced” 4 years ago from banking, Josi decided to take the lemons she was given and make lemonade. She rededicated herself to improving her mind, body and spirit and in the process of self-discovery, she found herself involved in yoga, meditation and an overall holistic lifestyle.
Today Josi is a yoga instructor and the proprietor of an organic juice and smoothie bar called Fit Blendz. She shares her personal journey with
others seeking wisdom as they travel their path. She continues her transition realizing that its not the destination that matters but the journey itself we embark on. She is committed to leaving a space better then it was before she arrived and holds herself responsible for the energy she gives to others. Josi lives in Davie with her husband, 4 children, 2 dogs and a cat.
