Joyce is a lead teacher, a mentor, and the program coordinator for Yoga Shanti New York’s 200-hour Teacher Training. The course, first and foremost, helps students to deepen, and take responsibility for their own practice. One can expect to spend a lot of time doing yoga with other like-minded people. It brings out the best in students’ lives, and enhances one’s ability to communicate what he or she loves and cares about with the people in their lives. Students who go the extra mile in the training can, and do, continue on to become respected teachers. Although, many students focus on establishing a home practice, and applying the benefits of the training to advancing other areas of their lives like personal relationships, and existing careers.
