Due to a torn hamstring and hip/back pain, I recently started seeing Joy for personal therapeutic yoga sessions. Not only is she an amazing yoga instructor, but her knowledge about the human body is incredible. She takes the time to listen and pays very close attention to every detail to give you the best results without harming you. Her passion and love shines through her work. After seeing her for just 3 session and doing my homework that she suggested, my hip pain is minimal and my hamstring is getting better everyday. Forever grateful to you Joy!
I must say, she was named well. She certainly brings JOY to those around her.
I am an 82 year old man, in good health, who has exercised regularly in a gym for years. Recently I started taking yoga lessons from Joy and realized that many of the aches and pains I used to experience, especially back pain and hip pain from my arthritis, have virtually disappeared. While I am just a novice, I am sure I will benefit even more from my yoga practice as I grow more experienced.
"I have taken private instruction with Joy to begin my Yoga practice. She helped me begin my practice with confidence by focusing on my specific concerns and providing guidance for a beginner. She shares her deep understanding of Yoga in a way that made it accessible to me as I was learning the language and the poses. I highly recommend Joy for private instruction. She is patient, thoughtful and committed to you building your own practice."
My first Reiki session with Joy was absolutely amazing! The energy was very powerful and I could feel the effects working that evening. She was even able to find other areas in my back that were hurting me without me discussing them with her. Joy is definitely a gifted healer. I would highly recommend going to her.
It was such a pleasure working with Joy. She took into account my health issues in addition to my weight and came up with a comprehensive plan for me including dietary needs, exercise plan, and suggestions for vitamins. She eased my worries about "messing up" and is amazingly compassionate. It was easy to contact her and she was quick and thorough with her answers. I am so thankful for the help Joy offered me and I would definitely recommend her to family and friends.
"Joy has been wonderful to work with, and she definitely has gone above and beyond in helping me with my nutrition for my digestive issues. I plan on also having her work with me with my spiritual healing through meditation and other mind body exercises. From the beginning, she has been thorough and has been very accessible when I've had questions or needed more guidance. She has been very open to working with me at my pace and is understanding and compassionate through the process. Joy has a very calm and caring spirit, and at the same time, is very motivating and encouraging. I would highly recommend Joy to anyone who is needing assistance and guidance with their nutrition, exercise and/or mind/body healing."
"I started coming to Joy because as I get older, I am starting to feel less flexible. The tightness in my body, especially in my hamstrings, were inhibiting me from feeling healthy. I was nervous about trying yoga, but Joy was incredibly kind, and made sure I was working at a pace I was comfortable with. She talked me though every pose and stretch. Just as importantly, she was constantly using words of encouragement to make sure I didn’t get down on myself, and pushed me when she knew I was ready. I have really enjoyed Joy’s love of yoga, her enthusiasm, her patience, and I highly recommend her for private yoga lessons."
"Sometimes you meet someone and you instantly know they are an extraordinary person! That is how I felt from the first class I took with Joy! Not only do her yoga workouts kick my patooty, she gets to the part of my soul that I sometimes neglect!
She brings peace, sweat, and beauty to the practice of yoga! I always look forward to a class with Joy!"
"I have been active my entire life. I had low back pain severe enough to dramatically limit my mobility. I was unable to do the things I enjoy most without pain and discomfort. After twenty three failed back procedures, multiple physical and aqua therapy sessions with minimal success, a friend of mine recommended Joy. It is incredible how well I move now and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Joy is an outstanding instructor, coach and communicator. She teaches physical movements and techniques that have allowed me to increase my range of motion and strength. She challenges me but understands my limitations and can see things only I can feel. I can move better now than I have in years, and I couldn’t be happier."
"Fantastic! Joy, my yoga instructor, is so much more than just a yoga instructor. She helps me with every aspect of my life. Thank you Joy."
"Joy is an absolutely fantastic instructor!! I have been going for the past three weeks and feel welcomed, invigorated and restored all at the same time."
"Joy has such a gift of easing my anxiety about yoga. From the beginning she was patient, kind, and never introduced me to anything I wasn't ready for. She respects where you are and meets you there. She seems to know what I need and when."
"In addition to being extremely knowledgeable on what nutritional needs I had for my situation, Joy was so very compassionate and gentle when discussing my ailments, which resulted in a very open, relaxed atmosphere. Her suggested changes to my diet and activity was so helpful! I am so grateful to her for giving me hope and inspiration!"
"Working with Joy Arnold was extremely fun! She was very caring, helpful and professional. She always got back to me when I needed something in a timely manner. She is more than qualified and educated for the service she offers. She was willing to provide me with meal plan suggestions as well as workout suggestions and guidance. She was also mindful of other daily health issues as well, such as sleeping enough, getting enough water, vitamins and levels of stress. I am trying to lower my blood pressure and Joy was sensitive and helpful to that as well. It was a very personal approach to becoming more healthy. I enjoyed working with her and would recommend her to my friends and others."
"Joy! This lady is World Class !!!!!!!"
"Joy was a great yoga instructor!"
