Balance and harmony


Are you looking for a guided movement class that has the benefits of yoga with encouragement to explore what works best for your body? Do you have some unique needs or limitations? Are you needing to schedule in some self care? Wanting to keep things simple?


Rejuvenate, reduce tension, improve range of motion, gain integrated strength and access inner ease with a weekly 'time-in' with your body. Experience freedom within structure using a unique and blended approach to traditional yoga. Learn to listen to your body’s needs and how to self-adjust. 

My practice and teaching weave a variety of modalities that lead participants to an embodied sense of yoga, including:

  • hatha yoga, somatic movement and Bodymind Ballwork (mindful myofascial release using rubber balls); and

  • time to arrive and set intentions for your practice and time at the end for integration and rest.

I offer group classes and private sessions for individuals or groups.

"I love Bodymind Ballwork. I feel tight spots and trigger points release. My body feels so free from tension after doing these classes."

BodyMind Ballwork

Practice mindfulness while releasing stuck-ness in your body.  Experience greater range of motion, increased fluidity of movement, and reduced stress. You will learn self-massage of common areas of tension using various sizes and densities of rubber balls, principles of release and how to re-pattern your body.


This is a portable, personalized and empowering method that promotes self-awareness, presence and injury prevention. Joy often weaves this practice into yoga classes and workshops. 


Balls are available for purchase.
