About Joy

I help people who struggle with tension, overwhelm and disconnection with their body find the inner ease and wholeness they seek. 

As a trauma-informed movement therapist, I  hold space for people to get out of their heads and into their bodies so they can release old tension patterns and explore new possibilities.  

I offer a variety of simple, body-based practices that weave my love of movement, mindfulness and the power of human connection.

Freedom with every breath


Wanting a deeper dive?

I guide people who are on a path of self-discovery and want to explore what's beneath the surface. With compassionate guidance, experience the release of stored stress, held stories and belief systems from your body with this simple and profound breath practice.  


Let your body speak


Looking for mindfulness in motion?

I help people with chronic stress and pain find the inner ease and improved relationship with their bodies they desire. Efficiently release tension, learn to move from within and find more joy through simple, gentle movements designed to settle your nervous system.


Balance and harmony


Think you're too stiff and sore for yoga? Think again.

I lead yoga classes for people with tension and stiffness who want a balance of structure and freedom in their practice. Joy weaves yoga, Bodymind Ballwork and somatic movement into classes and invites people to truly find what works in their unique body.
