Yoga is a tool box for living a meaningful and skilful life, a life that creates the least suffering for others and spreads love.
Joey came to yoga in 1998 after a mis-spent youth pursuing the circus, martial arts and physical theatre. While at Goldsmiths University studying a BA in Drama he set up and directed the Yoga Society, there doing his practice of seva (service). On graduating he began assisting Hamish Hendry at Ashtanga Yoga London and for 3 years he practised and assisted daily. During this time he spent 2-3 months every year in Mysore with Sri K Pattabhi Jois (Guruji) and Sharat.
In 2004 he was authorised to teach the primary series by Guruji and following that taught daily Mysore classes from 2005-2008 at Triyoga in Primrose Hill, London. In January 2009 he relocated to Yorkshire with Donna and their two children, Caleb and Daisy. He started Ashtanga Yoga Leeds with the intention of supporting people’s daily yoga practice.
In 2012 Joey received Authorisation Level 2, meaning he has Sharat’s blessing to teach the full Intermediate Series, more recently in 2014 Joey completed the 3rd series under Sharat’s guidance at the KPJAYI in Mysore.
