I have been a student of Reja's for over 7 years and I highly recommend her teaching. She has over 30 years experience. She uses a unique blend of spiritual and physical yoga and I always feel calm, revived and mentally refreshed after one of her classes. Reja doesn't push students beyond their capabilities and is sensitive to those with limitations. Her warm and friendly personality is a joy to all.

I should point out that I am in love with Joy. I mean literally. We are married! LOL! My yoga experience goes back to 1998. I have had at least thirty yoga instructors and by far Joy has been the most caring, most thorough, most professional and most passionate about yoga. Not only is she an instructor but she teaches the meaning of the asana, the sanscrit name, which chakra and meridian benefits from the posture and a three ring punch handout at the end with all the tips from the class. You will have a yoga experience that you will never forget.
What You Will Need When You Practice Yoga
Experience a very gentle Yoga Session, created in an atmosphere of soft light, peaceful music and a Mindful & Loving space.
You don't need to have done YOGA before.
Wear light-weight, stretchy clothing and try to leave a space of at least an hour since you had your last light meal.
Bring your yoga mat or use one provided. Pillows, blankets, blocks and bolsters will be provided.
