Joy Alexander is the Head of The STUDIO at The Haven Wellness Resort & Spa.  She is passionate about sharing her love of yoga, and has been leading classes throughout the Boquete community since 2014.

Born into a 'yoga family' -- (her mother opened one of the earliest yoga studios in Southeastern Massachusetts) -- she grew up practicing both yoga and meditation from an early age.   Yoga, quite simply, was and is a way of life. 

Joy has explored a variety styles such as Hatha, Vinyasa, Kripalu and Bikram Yoga.  Then she found and fell in love with the discipline of Ashtanga, deepening her practice even more. Now a registered yoga instructor (500 hr Yoga Alliance certification), she is realizing her dream in Boquete, Panama.

Along with a comprehensive 750 hour massage education, Joy has additional training in energy work and alternative healing modalities including 120 hrs of Polarity Therapy, and Lomi Lomi Certification Levels 1 & 2. 

Joy also is a certified TRE (Tension & Trauma Release Exercise) practitioner... and currently training in Somatic EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing). 

She brings all of this knowledge together into her teaching style, as she guides with combinations of awareness, movement / stillness, and breath to safely support others' innate ability to heal.
