Fantastic! I began with Joy and her yoga teaching at Anytime Fitness in Long Beach Ca and was immediately impressed with her teaching skill and warmth. I continued the next days and I am hooked! This is a "must do" especially for the visiting fighters to stay limber and avoid injuries. Joy also helped me with my mental state by giving me a yoga practice. Joy is an amazing yoga therapy.May 4, 2018
Joy is an excellent trainer. She is well prepared, focused and works well around injuries. She has set up a pre-row warm up that really works to get me moving on the water. You will not be dissapointed.Oct 17, 2018
Joy has a very calming style. She understands the medical aspects of yoga well. For example, I was having wrist pain and she was able to explain why and how to correct my pose to resolve it. No other yoga instructor pointed out the issue before. She listens well and modifies her routines to the individual. She has a very healing, non-judgmental nature and I'd recommend her as a private instructor for one-on-ones or small groups.Jun 21, 2018
I have had several trainings so far with Joy Miyatake. I am in my 70s and a runner. I began to notice that I couldn't stretch properly and had begun to stumble a little too often while running. I had concerns that proper flexibility and balance were a thing of the past for me. But Joy starts you off slowly and seems to have an instinct for getting you to the next stage, with no pain and plenty of gain. I already notice a positive difference in my running. I give Joy my highest recommendation without any reservation!May 14, 2018
Joy created workouts that were interesting and fun. We went all over long beach meeting in parks and on the beach for our sessions. She designed the classes to use different equipment and focusing on different areas of the body to keep it interesting and to work towards a holistic training programme. She tailor made the workouts to work towards my individuals goals and abilities. I would recommend joy to anyone looking to get in shape while having fun !May 5, 2018
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have over 500 hours of training and have taught over a thousand hours of yoga. I keep up to date with my training hours and am currently in a two year program to be a better teacher! I believe in life long learning.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I have taught yoga privately for a long time. My youngest client was 6 years old (I taught children’s classes at a shelter) to my oldest client 96 years old! I have worked teaching adaptive yoga, chair yoga, different levels of flow classes, elementary students, seniors, men and women. I believe the beauty of yoga is that anyone who can breathe on their own is capable of this practice! It’s not all about whether or not you can touch your toes.
