Joan Hyman is lead teacher of INNERCITYOGA’s RYS-200 Hours Deep Flow and one of the main teachers in the RYS-300 Deep Flow Yoga Teacher Training.
Joan’s grounded teaching style seamlessly supports her students as they emerge from their practice with the rich andbright energy that yoga has to offer. Joan’s teachings come from an organic and intuitive place, as she draws upon the combination studies of Ashtanga and Iyengar yoga as well as ayurveda, and meditation.

An authentic modern day yogi, Joan’s love and devotion show up in her practice and through her teachings. With over twenty years of experience leading retreats, trainings, and workshops worldwide Joan’s openhearted approach to teaching yoga keeps both her inner spirit and her students continuously evolving.

Originally from Philadelphia, Joan earned her Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from Temple University. Shortly after finishing college, she moved to New York City to pursue a professional dance career, and it was there that she discovered yoga. Soon after, she relocated to Santa Monica, California, where she completed the YogaWorks Teacher Training with the renowned Maty Ezraty and Lisa Walford in 2002, followed by further study with Annie Carpenter, who is known for her SmartFlow® system of highly intelligent sequencing. She went to study in Mysore, India with the beloved Sri K. Pattihbi Jois and his grandson Sharath Rangaswamy. Since then, she has traveled extensively throughout India and has been blessed to study with world-renowned teachers in far-off places where she has enjoyed unplugging from the Western way of living, fully embracing the yogic lifestyle and immersing herself in her practices

Reservation highly recommended: this workshop usually fill up very quickly!

I am so blessed to be able to do what I love and stay deeply connected to my yoga practice. This is truly an honor, which I hope I can pass on to others.
