I have taken the yoga/pilates fusion class withJoy every week for over two years. She is a fantastic teacher and her studio is very welcoming and comfortable - I often bring friends and out-of-town guests with me to take the class as well. I love that the classes are small and you get very individualized attention and instruction. I started out at a very basic, beginner's level in both yoga and pilates and I was able to improve greatly over the months and become a lot stronger and a lot more in shape. The class focuses a lot on stretching, flexibility and building strength and endurance. I was able to continue taking this class at Joy's studio throughout my entire 9 month pregnancy. Joy very knowledgeably helped me change my yoga practice to accommodate the physical limitations of pregnancy. The classes absolutely helped to keep me and my baby healthy and relaxed. I would definitely recommend this class and Joy's studio to anyone interested in physically feeling better at any stage of their life.

Over a year ago I decided to try a yoga/pilates class at Arkansas Tech with my husband. I had no idea what to expect, but I found out really fast I had very little abdominal strength. Developing some core muscles became a fitness goal. We continued with the yoga/pilates/fit-ball fusion class at Dance With Joy Studio, and I added the callanetics class as well. I appreciate the individual attention that Joy gives her students, since she limits her class sizes. She stresses proper form for the various exercises we do, to both prevent injuries and get the most benefit from the exercises. She is very good at modifying any exercise if you have certain limitations, while still challenging your comfort zone. She changes the yoga/pilates routine every week, but no matter what we do, we always get a great workout and leave feeling relaxed. The Callanetics routine is an intense workout that doesn't vary much, but I can tell I am toning some muscles. If you are looking for a long-term fitness routine, I highly recommend these classes!

Joy's yoga/pilates class has exceeded my expectations. Joy is skilled at keeping the class fun and challenging. Participatin gin this class has increased my flexibility and core strength. Flexibility and core strength are areas that other exercises, such as aerobic exercises and weightlifting, do not address. Having strong core muscles and maintaining flexibility go a long way in preventing future injuries. Although all age groups will benefit from this class, I particularly recommend it for those, like me, over 50, when flexibility and core strength become more limited unless challenged.

I always wanted to learn to dance. But, of course, life got in the way. However, a year ago I decided to try Line Dancing class for exercise, for fun and "me" time.

I absolutely LOVE it. It has changed my world. Dancing is my therapy, my outlet, my new passion. In addition to Line Dancing, Joy created an adult Ballet Barre and Tap Dance class which is extremely gratifying and challenging.

Learning to dance has given me the confidence and self esteem I needed. It helps in all other aspects of my life as well.

Joy is an awesome teacher and mentor. Her studio is top notch! The floating dance floor does make a huge difference (easier on the knees and back). And with smaller class size, I am able to receive more individual instruction - much less intimidating than those larger classes filled with perfect people.

If learning to dance is on your "bucket list", don't wait - LEARN TO DANCE!!!!!!! At Dance with Joy Studio!!!!!!!
