A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME
Joy Wasson, Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (CIYT) Level Two
A yoga practitioner since 1999, I have over 700+ hours of direct teacher training since 2013. I received my Level 1 certification in 2015 and Level 2 in 2017. Learn what these levels mean and what is required to attain this certification here.
I have experience teaching multiple audiences including youth swim teams, Crossfit gyms/athletes, school aged children, pregnant women, drug rehabilitation groups, and special needs/injuries.
I have a particular interest in how yoga compliments and improves coping skills during periods of high stress and/or trauma and benefits to women during all life stages. Email me with any questions you may have about Iyengar yoga, my classes, group sessions, or private lessons. I would be honored to connect with you on the path of yoga.
What People Say
Joy is a superb teacher. She is well trained in Iyengar yoga and works with all level of students, always focusing on each student, their specific physical issues, and their abilities. I love taking class with Joy. Her sequences involve poses that build on each other, so that one can ultimately achieve a more difficult pose if one is ready to do so. Joy is extremely flexible in her teaching, offering modifications for students. I am so glad she is doing on line classes as a means to continue my yoga practice. She is easy to follow on line and provides feedback to the individual students , In a word, Joy is a "joy."
Joy was one of my first yoga instructors. I was quite wary at first since I certainly did not know Sanskrit names for the poses. Here I was taking yoga because I was injured from other forms of exercise. I thought it would just be stretching. Nope. I have learned so much through my teachers, especially Joy. She smiles for encouragement. Before class she wants to know how each one of us are so she can modify a pose personally to our particular injury or pain. But, even so, she will tell you how to correct a position, to breathe, to think about your body during the pose, and to not compete. Joy has invested so many years of education and training, but teaching is a talent and a style. Joy has her own style. Do yourself a favor and don’t miss this experience with her.
