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."

Judy Lansky

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.
