  • "I am very grateful to Joy for bringing Yoga Reflections into my life. In two years of attending Beginner Yoga, just twice a week, I have experienced improved breathing, strength, flexibility and balance. My yoga practice has also been a factor in finally shedding some excess weight, which is hard to do when you reach the age of 70! Yoga has also helped to make the short, gray days of our Michigan winters more cheerful. Joy is a wonderful teacher and her studio is so peaceful and gorgeous! And, my fellow students are the nicest people."
