No reviews yet

Joy’s teaching style is deeply rooted in the lineage of the Ashtanga Method as it reflects the practice of her current teachers, Steve Dwelley and Michele Nichols of Ashtanga Yoga Shala, Santa Barbara. Steve & Michele studied under the late Shri K. Pattahbi Jois (Guruji) and his grandson, Sharath Jois. Sharath is the current teacher of KPJAYI (Shri K. Pattahbi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute) in Mysore, India, where Ashtanga originated through Pattahbi Jois’ instruction. Joy began teaching in 2015, after receiving her 200 hour Certification under Pure Heart Yoga - Mary Kay West (studied with Pattahbi Jois) and a second 200 hour Certification under Yoga Vie - Virginia Allain (student of Annie Carpenter). Since then her teaching has evolved from attending various workshops under teachers: Maty Ezraty, Laruga Glaser, Kino MacGregor, Sharath Jois, Dena Kingsberg, Tim Miller, Devorah Sacks, Tim Feldmann (AYC), Richard Freeman & Mary Taylor (AYC) and Manju Jois (AYC).
