Joy was instrumental in co-leading our early Aananda Yoga teacher trainings at Red Pearl , along with Surrendran Panderan and Lisa Pumper. In 2010, Joy opened her own Yoga Studio, OM Joyful Yoga in Cooper City. There she led her own teacher trainings, as well as taught daily classes, and  led special workshops and events. She sold the studio in 2018 and is now free to expand her teachings around South Florida and the Globe, fulfilling a deep longing she has had to travel and teach.

Joy can say that absolutely, Yoga heals. And Metaphysics give us insight as to what lies beyond our day to day existence itself. She believes that when you hold true to what  is in your heart, the light of the divine will guide and support you along the journey.
