"I’ve lost over 15 pounds in 3 months since starting yoga with Joy! Not only does she make me work harder than I would on my own, but she wants me to be my best self. Her encouraging words and dedication to her students is inspiring and she truly makes you believe you can achieve your personal goals. She smiles at everyone, laughs at no one, and lifts you up! Hands down, the best decision I’ve ever made."
"Joy provides wonderfully detailed & knowledgeable information!!! I cannot overstate how much her advice has helped me in improving my form!"
"Fantastic yoga class, it was all I hoped it would be. I felt I got a good workout but done in such a calming way. Wonderful ambiance. Can’t wait to go again."
"The facility is amazing and so was Joy the instructor. I had no idea Yoga could be like this!"
"Joy is a fabulous teacher!!! Our deepest appreciation!"
"Joy! This lady is World Class !!!!!!!"
"Body and soul food!"
"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 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."
"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."
"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."
"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 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."
"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."
"Discovering Joy has been a godsend. She is warm, welcoming and passionate about what she does. Being a first timer to Reiki, she immediately put me at ease. With her gentle hands she was able to begin to heal so much of what ails me. Not only are her sessions therapeutic for the body but for the mind as well. I always leave feeling so relaxed and better both physically and emotionally."
"I have received Reiki treatments from Joy on several occasions. It is a very peaceful, relaxing experience. In my first session, Joy was able to pinpoint a few of my ailments without knowing my history. I have also had some welcomed relief from shoulder pain after treatment. She is very passionate about her work and has been great at educating me on the science of Reiki. I always like to leave time for Reiki during my one on one sessions with Joy!"
"I had injured my shoulder and a friend of mine who sees Joy for reiki recommended her to me. It was my first experience with reiki so I was a little nervous. Joy was patient, gentle, and took extra time to make sure I was comfortable. She wouldn't let me tell her anything before hand, which I respected. Holy cow! Not only did she know that I injured my shoulder, but she picked up on an injury from a couple months ago as well as an emotional event I was going through! I don't know how she does it but she clearly has a gift!"
"As a new mom struggling with anxiety and finding personal balance in my life, as many mommas do, my experience with Reiki has been more than AMAZING. Joy brings such a personal and tranquil experience that makes me feel emotionally and spiritually balanced all week allowing me to have much more acknowledged gratitude for where I am in my life. Reiki has continually taught my body and mind to be aware of what my heart and subconscious is trying to tell me for the internal healing of my soul, spirit and overall well-being. My path has led me to Joy and I could not be more grateful for her and her practice, she is truly a beautiful soul and I hope many others get the same opportunity and calling to share in her healing.”
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.

"Excellent class, Joy is a natural-very informative. She welcomed questions and had all the answers!! Yoga Nidra was a surprise treat-excellent ending to her class. Thank you!"
" Very powerful! The meditation and movement really helped me to open up and bring my intentions to surface, as well as and to release my passion to focus on them. The interaction with group members brought me a sense of being supported and encouraged in manifesting my intentions. I loved being able to connect with like minded women! I drew the “sisterhood” card, and it totally defined the moment. A few tears and lots of laughs were shed! "
"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."
"Joy was a great yoga instructor!"
