Joy Jones

LCL, Educator, Facilitator, Yogi

Known as “positively minded,” “relatable,” and “full of joy,” she approaches life with a dynamic global perspective after living in New Zealand, Singapore, Japan, and The United States. Her global awareness is important at this particular juncture as our communities become important to how we connect with one another, and ultimately ourselves. Responsibility, inclusion, and awareness are key factors to establishing community and culture, in which Joy has nurtured over the years through social and emotional training in mindfulness, meditation, and yoga, as well as her devoted time to teaching children and working for non-profits in remote parts of the world. 

With over ten years of experience in elementary education, Joy has been a trainer, team leader, and advocate not only for children but for parents and communities. She has seen how big and small our world is but found that true happiness comes from within yourself through the dynamic power of connection to self and others. Her work in her life has been devoted to sharing, teaching, helping, and empowering others to follow the intuition of self to be able to take big risks, honor oneself, and turn visions and dreams into reality. 

Joy lives in San Francisco, California with her husband and daughter. She values and enjoys mediating daily, moving through yoga, finding peace in the water while surfing, connecting to naturewhile hiking and camping, gaining knowledge through reading, and connecting to people around her. 

my approach

Coaching, Workshops, and Training

As a coach, Joy walks alongside you so you can live the life you’ve always wanted. She does this by supporting you in realignment with your true self, finding joy and peace with life circumstances, and listening to your inner light and intuition. Through her years of teaching mindfulness, mindset, and meditation she brings these to each session to bring balance, awareness, and strength to oneself

Joy dives into the true essence of who you are by realigning with your values, mission, and purpose in life. She listens, builds trust, and understands right where you are to guide you on the path you desire to move on.

Not only does she coach one-on-one, but facilitates workshops for groups looking for a new approach to life, career, relationships, or group dynamics. She believes in setting intentions and compiles workbooks and journals to foster a love for life regardless of its situations.
