MINDFUL YOGA WITH JOY

MOVEMENT & BREATH 

Beach Yoga with Joy in Southbourne

ABOUT MY PRACTICE

Embark on a sacred journey of self-discovery, as we delve into the transformative realms of yoga on the mat. For a decade, I've immersed myself in the profound practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow, blending ancient Eastern wisdom, Traditional Chinese Medicine, yogic philosophy, and mindfulness meditation to create a holistic approach to well-being.

In the classes, I cultivate a space where practitioners can shed their protective layers and connect with their true selves. Each session becomes a sacred inquiry, an exploration guided by dedication, meditative awareness, and the harmonious integration of body, breath, and movement.

Drawing inspiration from the teachings of ancient yoga traditions, my approach is an unhurried exploration method. With a profound respect for the mystery of life, I encourage all participants to embrace the practice with an open mind and  witness the powerful transformation from within.

I invite you to join me in the transformative power of yoga, where we explore the luminous self, channel energy towards transformation, and create a space for growth, healing, and self-discovery.

 

I look forward to practising with you.  ♡

YIN YOGA

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.

“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!”

Review for Joy Yoga and Wellness

“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

Review for Joy Yoga and Wellness

“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.”
