Joy started practicing Hatha Yoga in Portland, OR in 1994 while in college. She immediately realized the significance her yoga practice brought to her body, her mind, her heart and her life. It wasn't until 2012 when she became a teacher (200HR-EYRT) and opened up a studio. Joy's classes weave intention with pranayama, precision in alignment with quiet contemplation, subtle body awareness with refinement. Her classes invite us to attune ourselves to the needs of our bodies and adapt our postures to create more ease, to experience and explore the simplicity of being.
