Intimacy and Energy Coach
Reiki and Tantra Practitioner
Joya's path for self-discovery and thirst to 'know more' was sparked at the age of 13 when her aunt and uncle gave her the book, The Miracle of Mindfulness, by Thich Naht Hahn. Yoga and meditation further developed her practice, but eventually the realization came that the majority of spiritual practices in our culture work from a masculine mindset, and lack a feminine awareness. During stays in India and Thailand a feminine framework of understanding began to take shape. This now facilitates Joya's ability to open to and guide her clients into states of 'oneness' and connection.
Joya’s exploration of intimacy and spirituality led her to the personal revelation that sexuality is the seed and seat of our soul, and the root of our being.
Joya believes that intimacy [deep connection] creates a container in which deep healing, growth and self-realization can take place. It is Joya's passion and dedication to nurture and grow states of being that cultivate pleasure, comfort and a feeling of 'home' in the body, mind and world.
Surrogate Partner Therapy, Tantra, Reiki, Sensual Mindfulness, guided meditations and intentional bodywork are some of the practices Joya uses to help men, women and couples cultivate embodied presence, pleasure, passion and wholeness. These wisdoms offer foundational support in all the aspects of one's life, living, relationships and wellbeing.
