Joey came to yoga after a misspent youth pursuing the circus, martial arts and physical theatre. At Goldsmiths University of London he directed the Yoga Society for 3 years and sat regularly with the FWBO (Friends of the Western Buddhist Order). After completing his degree in Drama he became an assistant to Hamish Hendry at Ashtanga Yoga London, during this time he studied annually with his Guru the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore and in 2004 was authorised to teach the Primary Series.
In 2009 Joey moved to Leeds where he set up and continues to run Yorkshire’s first 5 day a week Mysore program: Ashtanga Yoga Leeds. In 2012 Joey assisted Sharath daily at the KPJAYI for a month and was given Authorisation level 2 (blessing to teach the intermediate series), on his most recent trip to Mysore in 2014 Joey completed the Advanced A series – it was hard!
