JOY CONWAY

Yoga Teacher
Plant Based Nutrition Coach
Decorative Artist

Joy has been practicing Yoga for 16 years, and decided to attend 200 HR Yoga Teacher Training in 2019 to deepen her knowledge and practice...which led to an unexpected LOVE for teaching others the satisfying and beneficial results of a regular yoga practice. Joy focuses on slower movements and alignment, with many modifications demonstrated for those with injuries or limited flexibility. She uses lots of props to help achieve the best alignment for each pose. Pranayama techniques, Meditation, Chakra Balancing and Essential Oils add flavor and variety to Joy’s classes.

Joy was also certified by Cornell in Plant Based Nutrition in 2021, and has been a professional artist for 21 years. She and her husband Frank love to go to Yoga Festivals in CO, AZ and CA for their vacations, and when at home, she works on perfecting her vegan recipes in the kitchen, tending to the garden and painting on canvases, furniture and walls.

MILES
(THEY/THEM)

Somatonaut

Movement Educator
