“Joan is one of my most inspirational mentors. She was so supportive of all her mentees in my 300 hr group and has a very poignant way of making Yoga accessible and applicable to each individual student’s life. Her own passion and conviction for the practice of Yoga and its effectiveness is palpable: Joan is always inspiring. I am so grateful to have her as a teacher and a cornerstone for my evolution in my Yoga practice and as a student and as a teacher.”

“Joan Hyman is a magnificent teacher. A teacher’s teacher. She walks her talk and lives as she leads. She’s done the real work long enough to offer a potent and genuine transmission of deep practice. As a mentor, she helped fortify my commitment, not just to focused and aligned asana but also to daily meditation. She commands a high-level of concentrated attention -in a strong yet kind, disciplined yet generous way- that delivers a transformative effect. Attuned to both the sacred and the secular, Joan brings the best qualities to the practice and to her students. It has been a tremendous gift to learn and grow from Joan’s teachings. Enjoy this opportunity to study with one of the best!”
