Joydom Yoga is a simple combination of Hatha, Vinyasa and meditative exercise. It focuses on a series of gentle asanas and pranic breathing that help to increase the flow of energy. I will encourage my clients to reach their maxumum potential while honoring the body's limitations. I have created a service that is geared toward healing the whole heart,body and spirit for people on the path to enlightenment.
Yoga has been incredibly life changing for me and it is my desire to guide others toward a life of wellness devoid of mental illness, physical ailments, addiction and dependency issues. Let me guide your journey toward better health and happiness.
As a yoga teacher 200ryt, movement coach and reiki healer, it brings me great pleasure and satisfaction to witness others moving into a place of healing. I have personally come to utilize yoga, meditation and movement to heal not only my physical body but also my mental and spiritual bodies. This journey has been incredibly rewarding for me and it is always an honor to guide others along their own personal journey toward higher consiousness.
Joy is literally a joy to work with. She has a voice and an aura that is so incredibly soothing. You can feel that she actually cares about your wellbeing and your successful practice. I look forward to taking many more classes with her in the future!
I believe the best method for starting with a new student is to begin with a consultation. It is important to get to know each person individually in order to evaluate the level of ability. I’d like to get a basic understanding of the students regular exercise and eating habits in order to make suggestions to improve their health in a way that is sustaining. The next step would be an evaluation of the students current skill level and ideal goals. I’d like to help them to set realistic expectations for themselves while maximizing their potential. Working with each individual to create a program that is designed specifically for them. Yoga is a way of life and the overall goal is to reach better health, happiness and balance in our daily lives. It is a method used to ultimately minimize the daily stressors that keep us bogged down and help us to reach a higher state of consciousness. This is a place we must each strive to reach and move closer to each day. The journey itself is always the focus, never the destination.
I graduated from Eastern University with a degree in Addiction Studies. It was there at Easteern that I first discovered and began my path toward spiritual development through the theology department. Additionally, I currently hold a 200 hour ryt from Sampoorna Yoga where I trained under Yogi Hari. This particular training was based on an immersion style and I will be forever grateful for his teachings. I have also completed reiki training at the Masters level under the apprenticeship of Melissa Crowhurst and completed certifications in aromatherapy, meditation and wellness coaching.
I have currently set a standard rate at $75/ hr for one on one individual sessions. Each session typically consists of a breif consultation and meditation moving right into asanas and breathwork. I also offer small class rates at &135/hr. All of my sessions are informal. My intent is to invoke inspiration and empowerment.
I started by attending public classes on my own and in my neighborhood studio which ultimately led to developing my own personal practice. I had such amazing results that my desire to share this knowledge and gifts with others became overwhelming. It is now that I seek to finally work with others to create lasting change.
I have worked with most students at beginner levels. Those who have never practiced, some who have a base knowledge and also those who have been studying for some time but are still at beginner or intermediate level. I worked with family and friends initially and then with other yoga students.
I personally enjoy all movement and art modalities geared toward self improvement and self healing. I participate in yoga, meditation and movement workshops led by other healers that inspire my own life in profound ways. I recently attended a Tibetan bowl meditation that has inspired me to learn to play. It was very moving in that I could sense my energy body opening and releasing and my heart chakras creating more alignment and balance within my body. I specifically recall letting go of all boundaries during this session and breathing into my awareness. I left feeling rejuvenated and with much gratitude for the instructor and the experience overall.
My best advice would be to try to develop a connection with someone who makes you feel comfortable in your skin, and accepts your limitations while encouraging you to reach your maximum potential. I would also suggest remembering that teachers are students too. This practice again, is a way of life we are all striving to become better learners and to find fullness within our lives. There are no perfect masters. Expect imperfection, in fact come to look for it. This will help us to keep an open heart and a fresh perspective.
I believe it is important to decide how much effort you are willing to put forth and to openly convey that. Decide where you want to be and what good health looks like for you, not for anyone else. Then ask the questions that get you to the place where you want to be. Yoga is a way of life is a life that takes a lifetime of practice. There is no judgement here, we must be honest first with ourselves and then invite others into your truth.
