CIYT (Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher) Level 2
Joy is a certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher, Level 2. A yoga practitioner since 1999, Joy has 700+ hours of direct teacher training and has been teaching since 2013. Joy teaches the Iyengar Yoga method, providing clear demonstrations of poses and use of props to provide support to the less flexible and extra extension to the more advanced student. She weaves the philosophy of yoga throughout each class to help students go beyond the physical practice to attain a calm, stable, and refreshed state of mind. Joy has experience teaching multiple audiences including school aged children, pregnant women, drug rehabilitation groups, sports teams/athletes, special needs, and rehabilitation from injuries. Joy continues mentorship, regular instruction, and guidance from my mentor, Becky Lloyd, Level 3 Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher and owner of Audubon Yoga in New Orleans, and weekly online classes with Abhijata Iyengar, senior teacher at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI) in Pune, India and grand-daughter to B.K.S. Iyengar.
