My Name is Joy Love Bernstein and I am a yoga instructor here in San Antonio, Texas. I teach modified in all the variations of a beginner's practce, no matter, age, size and or limitations all in a class setting of no mor than four students.
I began my practice when I was 6 years old with just my want to bend and explore who I was, and I have continued that very same path to this very day.
Becoming a teacher was by accident. When I found my teacherI I immersed myself in what ever she was offering and at the time it was a 200hr Teacher Training program.
Plot Twist!!!! Though my intentions were to continue evolving in my practice with my teacher, the universe instead introduced me to students who were displaced, asking for my assistance with their own practice. The teaching began and I evolved more than I ever could have imagined.
Intentions for the practice.
You only have one chance at this life. I want your body to sustain at its fullest
ability to adapt for how ever long you have the privilege to be here..
I want you to be able to handle falling down and getting back up. I want you to be able to reach, pull, lift, and hold what is required of you to get things done.
I want to Guide you, to STRENGTHEN and MAINTAIN your body.
This is what my yoga looks like for to me for you.
My Practice is my life.
This is not a cute hobby to do with friends, a phase, or some ploy to seek validation. I am passtionate about the Limbs of my Yoga. This is a service I was guided to offer. It has been breathtaking to see people come home to themsleves and I am humbled and honored to be allowed to be part of that. Thank you.
