Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT)
Born into a ‘yoga family’, Joy grew up practicing yoga and meditation with her mother, who was a trailblazer opening one of the early yoga studios (before yoga was ‘mainstream’), aptly named “The Joy of Yoga.” Joy continued throughout her adult life, exploring a variety styles such as Hatha, Vinyasa, Kripalu and Bikram Yoga. However, it wasn’t until 2010 that she found and fell in love with the discipline of Ashtanga, deepening her practice even more. Now a registered yoga instructor (200 hr Yoga Alliance certification), she is realizing her dream in Boquete, Panama.
Joy is also a Certified Massage Therapist. Along with an intensive 800 hour massage education, she has extensive training in energy work and alternative healing modalities including 120 hours of Polarity Therapy, and 40 hours of Lomi Lomi Certification Levels 1 &2. Although not currently practicing bodywork (not enough hours in the day!)… she brings this knowledge of the body — both the energetic and physical aspects — into her teaching style.
