Joseph, a native of San Diego, California, has always been drawn to the enrichment of life that Yoga brings.
He began practicing in 2006 and was led to his first training program at Sonic Yoga in NYC. It was through this training that he met his current teacher, Will Duprey. Through studying with Will, and his wife Susan, Joseph has come to know and love a classical Hatha Yoga lineage. Training in small groups and a traditional one on one setting, he continues to study deeply with and assist his teacher.
Joseph is a Yoga therapist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NYC. With MSKCC he contributes to research that is finding new ways to use Yoga as an integrative therapy in cancer treatment. He has also taught hundreds of students in classes, workshops, and retreats all over the country. He has developed and led teacher training programs and is currently serving his teacher as part of the Hathavidya teacher training program.
Joseph's class melds a unique blend of light heartedness and a disciplined focus to gain awareness of the Self and to harmonize the body and mind. He looks to build independent students with clear communication of alignment and emphasizing taking the practice at your individual pace. He presents the teachings of Hatha Yoga in a practical way and encourages their use in everyday life.
