In Joy Yoga begins with the premise that the practice of yoga is therapeutic and that our inherent nature is one of Joy.  The benefits are endless:


  • Mobility & flexibility
  • Strength
  • Resilience
  • Self awareness
  • Sense of purpose
  • Deep peace
  • Mindful breath

This is a practice to help us become the best version of ourselves.

You are capable. Your thoughts, actions and lifestyle largely determine your results. Great results come not only from doing your practice but also making time to receive a beneficial modality like Thai Bodywork.

I look forward to cultivating an optimal experience of purpose, well-being and Joy both on & off the mat. Sharing this practice with you is the highest honor!



Play is essential to life. Playing your edge is what brings forth your inherent greatness into being. Finding your edge is where growth begins.

I define play as ‘simply for the delight’ of it. Play also teaches us not to take life too srsly; it’s just a dance, the play of consciousness experiencing itself as you, as me.

What People Are Saying

My husband and I greatly enjoyed the couples thai yoga massage workshop! The room was full but we were well spaced out to work with our partners. Not only did John teach us techniques to massage our partners, he also taught us how to position out bodies to benefit from the movements too, and surprisingly he also taught us how to pay attention to our partner’s response and communicate with voice and body. I would love to take the class again, especially if there is wine after.

I have received Thai Yoga Bodywork from 6 different practitioners over the last 10 years. John Levis’s work is the best I have ever had… and one of the other practitioners I had was a third generation bodyworker from Thailand! John’s clear sense of safety regarding the limits and potentials of my range of movement is excellent. Having weekly sessions with John for many months now is helping to keep me flexible and aligned, and has become a powerfully deep extended meditation session for me as well.

John’s knowledge of Thai Yoga Bodywork exceeded my expectations and prior experiences with Thai Bodywork. As an athlete and avid yoga practitioner it was an incredible opportunity to receive a restorative stretch while simply focusing on the breath and my own meditation. It is an empowering yet relaxing method that I have a newfound understanding of and appreciation for due to my experience with John! Highly recommend!
