The JOY program was founded on these principles:

Yoga changes lives. Yoga is an eight limbed practice that combines asana, breath, the process of meditation, ethics and philosophy. Our mat is our laboratory and yoga is a practice we carry with us throughout the day. With regular practice transformation of one’s health and happiness is possible for everyone.

Every body and every mind is unique. That means that JOY of Yoga teacher trainees will learn how to meet people where they are and create an effective inclusive experience for everyone in your classes as well as for your individual clients.

Instructors memorize scripts. JOY provides you a structure to learn how to teach as opposed to instruct. In order to get as much experience as possible, at the two hundred hour level, ten day immersions enable you to dive deeply into the experience of yoga with your peers. At the 500 hour level, weekend immersions are effective because they give you time between weekends to read, study and apply new principles in your lives and in your classes.

Yoga is an evolving practice. Understanding the past is essential to building evolving intelligently. JOY seeks to understand the past through history and philosophy while also incorporating the results of today’s scientific research in the understanding of mind and body.

You will learn the art and science of yoga, how to read bodies and address your students, no matter who they are or what kind of existing condition they may have. The more capable you are of being yourself, grounded in skill and practice, there is no telling what you are capable of.

Yoga is a mental, physical, emotional and spiritual practice. Being a yoga teacher also requires the practice of business. You will leave the program empowered in all five areas of practice.

JOY provides you the support and guidance through outstanding faculty and a structure that facilitates the growth necessary to find your own authentic voice. When you leave the 200 hour training you will be equipped to teach professionally. When you leave the 500 hour training, you’ll have a specialization in this vast field of yoga – your passion and expertise -- and you will have lead a three hour workshop at Breathe Los Gatos on your subject of choice, something you will be able to take with professionally to  the community at large.

In the words of Joseph Campbell, you will have “followed your bliss.” Doors will open and your world, in and around you,  will be made better for it.
