Move. Breathe. Connect.

Welcome to Joy Somatics, the evolution of 'Yoga with Joy' located in the heart of St. Vital, Winnipeg, Manitoba. Now serving you both in-person and on-line. 


Are you;

  • Tight, stiff and sore? Feeling restricted in your breath or movement? 

  • Wanting more resiliency, suppleness, balance and strength?

  • Experiencing insomnia? Swings in mood or energy?

  • Having trouble slowing down/busy mind? Or feeling 'stuck'/can't get going?

  • Wanting more self awareness and a better relationship to your body?

  • Sense that stress or life events are somehow contributing to all of this?

  • Wanting more wholeness, joy and better connection to your inner wisdom?

I help busy, stressed people slow down, go within and release old patterns that are contributing to stiffness and tension and find new possibilities through simple, body-based practices. More than ever, we need to slow down and de-stress our bodies. More than ever, we need to practice finding our inner calm so we can respond to life well. 

July & August Group Movement Classes until Aug 21.

The following classes have room to drop in;


Private Sessions 

  • Available both in-person (2 locations) and on-line.
