Joye discovered hot yoga 15 years ago while searching for relief from the rigours of being a full-time mother, jewellery artist and gallery owner. What started as occasional dates with her yoga mat blossomed into a love affair. Her mat is a magic carpet that has has taken her from a life of pain and coping and transformed her into a realistic, renewed and refreshed person. Combining heat, philosophy, mindfulness, anatomy, movement, and breath into an intoxicating brew, Modo has become her mainstay in life with “Live to Learn” being her favourite pillar. Joye is trained in Modo level 1 Yin, and Modo Fit. She loves to explore the connections between yoga, music, mindfulness, fitness, and community together with the other staff and students at the studio— she considers it an honour and a privilege!
