Yoga on the mat is a sacred enquiry where we shed out the protective skin and get to know who we really are and experiencing the luminous self. I offer Vinyasa Flow, and Yin Yoga classes which are dedicated to create a space where we can channel energy towards transformation. This is done through dedication, meditative awareness, and integrating body, breath, movement. Vinyasa is an unhurried exploration method which was taught in the traditions of yoga master Krishnamacharya, and passed on through the traditions of Iyengar and Ashtanga. With 10 years of practise and devotion to Ashtanga vinyasa flow, concepts of yogic philosophy, mindfulness meditation, Ancient Eastern medicine throughout Asia, I bring in the respect for the mystery of life and encourage you all to practice with an open mind.  


I look forward to practising with you.  ♡

Controlled Concentration

This yoga basic class is designed in a supportive environment for those who are looking to learn or return to the foundations of yoga postures (asanas), alignment, breathing, and technique.

Rebalance & Revitalising

Yin yoga is relatively slow paced, mainly floor based and often stationary. There is a sense of softness, and staying in long-held poses increases our capacity for emotional flexibility and resiliency. In the physical facet, the postures are held for a long time to mainly target the connective tissues in a Yin yoga practise. The practice in general helps release tension and improve relaxation. While we explore the body and mind, we apply ancient eastern medicine theory to understand the fundamental key element for wellbeing. No yoga experience is necessary.

"Joy’s teaching is very authentic and professional; you will learn not just about postures, but also healthy yogic diet.  She played relaxing yoga music during the class which was really enjoyable.   Joy’s friendly and dynamic yoga teaching is suitable for everybody and it can be easily integrated into everyone’s lifestyles."


“I can always count on Joy's classes to lift my mind, body and soul! Joy is a charming teacher with such a calming nature. She never pressures students to over exert themselves instead encourages individuals to go at their own pace and offers various options depending on a students ability. Her love of yoga is infectious and flows through her classes, it is impossible not to be inspired by her teachings. It is clear she cares about each and every student and strives to get the best out everyone. She is a truly wonderful teacher, thank you Joy!”

“Really enjoying my weekly yoga sessions with Joy. Great way to the start weekend and increase my flexibility which is a must as it’s pretty much non-existent right now! 🙃”

―Jo Pinkard


“Joy is such a lovely person and brilliant yoga teacher.  Her classes are varied and always interesting.  I feel 100% confident in the way that Joy teaches.  I have a few injuries (including a prolapse disc in my back) and so I have been really delighted to find a teacher I can trust to make sure that I am safe in my practice.  I would thoroughly recommend Joy as my favourite yoga teacher of all time!  I’ve been practising (on and off) for the past 20 years.”
