Joyful Love

Finding Joy was such a blessing at a very challenging time in my life. Going into my first session I felt uncertainty, fear and doubt, about my future, and more importantly, about myself. Joy made me feel instantly comfortable and cared for, and I knew immediately that I was in the best of hands. Our session was life-changing and quite hard to describe, but if I had to try, I would describe it as magic. Visions came to me and many questions were answered during our time together. Even more so, I walked away feeling confident in myself to work through my challenges knowing that I had Joy in my “toolbox.”

Since then, I have experienced sessions with Joy in group events and small group sessions. Everytime, I experience something different and walk away with new treasures. Joy has opened my eyes to so many different possibilities for myself and my future. She also has impacted the way I view healing and health. I am very thankful to have the Joyful Approach in my life.

I’m so blessed to have met Joy Dushey at this moment in my life. As a professional musician, author and educator for nearly 3 decades, my work requires a certain resiliency to confront the challenges involved in developing creative projects. Doing breath work with Joy has helped me to explore and confront self-imposed roadblocks that can impede my forward progress. Joy is at once intuitive, nurturing and supportive, yet she also gently challenges me to go to uncomfortable places. The results have been impactful both on the conscious and sub-conscious levels. And while the work is very powerful on its own, in Joy’s hands I believe it truly has the power to be life altering.  Daniel Glass, NYC

I don’t even know where to begin to describe the effect that Joy has had on my life. Going through a very difficult time, to say the least, I decided to join one of Joy’s meditation classes on the beach. At the end of the class, with tears streaming down my face, all I needed was a hug and Joy gave it to me. I then knew, I was in the right place and in the right hands to deal with all life was throwing at me.
Joy has opened my eyes to a world that was laying right inside of me. She has created an environment which is calming, healing and most of all safe. There is no judgement when you enter into a session, allowing you to leave your worries at the door.
Through breath-work and Joy’s guidance, I am working on releasing all of the negative energies that are no longer serving me and are blocking me from bringing in love, life, abundance and anything else my heart desires. She has helped me to move forward on the true path of healing.
Joy goes the extra mile, checking up on me after our sessions and answering any questions that may arise. In addition, she has taught me how to meditate on my own and has given me tools to reduce any anxiety when I am not in her presence. Joy is peace, light and love all wrapped into one.
Every day we should identify what we are grateful for… and every day I am grateful for Joy!! E, NYC

Joy has been an amazing teacher to me. I never knew what breathwork was until I met her but I am so happy that I tried it because it has saved me. The best part about it is that no matter where I am I can do a session because Joy is available on Skype as well. She is there to guide you through the whole process. She is also an amazing life coach who really gives amazing advice that helps you get through the good and bad times in life. She has really helped me feel less anxious and helped me improve my life.

Joy provides a beautiful, safe environment in which to explore personal growth and healing. With her soft, gentle approach, she has opened me up to new spiritual practices taught in an easily accessible way. I leave every interaction and conversation with Joy feeling inspired, light-filled and Joy-ful.

It's difficult for me to put words to the effect that 1:1 Breathwork sessions with Joy has had on me...

I started Breathwork last year with joy and the environment that she creates is warm, loving, safe and is nothing but a haven for healing and for me to embrace solitude. From her soft voice, relaxing music, to the warm table with beautiful smells of essential oils and incence that clear the passageway for new energy and a heart opening environment.

She guides you through the Breathwork which takes you into a trance and opens up the chakras for emotions and energy to flow freely. Her safe space helps open up your heart to discuss areas that you feel stuck, which is the foundation for allowing change and healing.

Joy has guided me through a daily routine of creating self-awareness and has paved a way for positive changes in the patterns and relationship that I have with myself and others and creating healthy boundaries. I have seen major changes in my life already. I highly recommend Breathwork sessions, either one on one or group to those who are open to inviting change and healing in their lives. I always leave her table feeling refreshed, renewed and with an open heart.

Working with Joy really put a smile on my day...

This past summer, I did two workshops with Joy…

The first one consisted of yoga, group meditation, intention setting and an introduction to the Joyful Approach. The second was a group breathwork session. Both of the workshops were informative, inspiring and very helpful to me. Joy was able to create a sense of community amongst the participants that made me feel comfortable in sharing from my heart. The breathwork session felt like a deep cleaning of my whole being. I even had a past-life vision of Joy as a high priestess supervising the healing of many people. She has a natural talent of enabling her clients to be at ease and allow their deeper soul issues to come forth. I look forward to taking more workshops with Joy and highly recommend her as a breathwork facilitator and life coach.

I knew everything that was said during the sessions did not leave the room and there was no judgement. We always tried finding solutions to problems and working through them. Joy made it very easy to connect and open up. The Breathwork left me feeling felt like a weight lifted off my chest and really made me feel less anxious and stressed throughout the day.


Joy is wise, modest, and a facilitator for deep healing..She is masterful at providing a non-judgemental, creative healing space so that one feels inspired to explore all facets of what it is to be human. Through her gentle breathwork guidance and genuine love, I was able to reconnect with myself, to experience my essence again. Joy is truly selfless–she will be your biggest cheerleader, and today, in a world where everyone is competing–that is invaluable.

I truly benefited to great extent from the amazing experiences during breath work with Joy...

My first session was in a beautiful group and I found the collective energy was very powerful and a very special connection between all the group members. I was blown away by the opening it has created in my body mind and spirit. I found clear answers regarding matters that were lingering in my life !

I also had some private sessions with Joy , she has a way of creating a safe space where I could surrender and not hold back , feeling her healing energies doing her magic to help my world be a better place and help others that cross my path have a positive impact as I care for them.

I feel it is a continuous journey as we all peel our layers and show our light !!!

Breath work with Joy is nothing like I have experienced…

It’s so healing. I feel more in my body and less in my head. During the sessions, I can literally feel old fear patterns releasing. In its place is a greater sense of peace and sometimes even a tingling from all the energy moving. All the while, Joy gently and intuitively guides you through this transformational experience. I’m hooked!”

Elegant healing…

Ancient wisdom. Powerful and transforming. Thorough and soulful. This is what it is like to work with Joy. A true privilege.

The joyful approach retreat was at first a great girlfriend’s healthy getaway…

it turned out that this retreat became so much more for me. It helped me recognize that I was dealing with emotions that I was not even aware of. As I unveiled my feelings around some situations in my life, and addressed them in a warm-loving group setting, lead by Joy, I felt loved, accepted and not alone, the support was so heart lifting and healing. In the process I attended Joy’s breathwork workshop, her unique way of guiding it was very nurturing and impactful. As a result I came back home with more clarity, strength and gratitude. I highly recommend Joy as a facilitator, healer & leader.

I embrace my weekly Joyful Approach class as it feeds my mind, body and spirit…

while teaching me to let go and trust the sacred space Joy so wonderfully creates for her students. Joy gently sets the pace for inward self exploration, reflection and acceptance as she journeys us through setting our intentions. There are no wrong answers, only words of encouragement. There are no judgments, only quests for improvements. The Joyful approach is exactly that…..a joyful approach.

My experience with the beautiful Joy aka “the Joyful Approach” has been wonderful, healing, and enlightening to say the least…

I went on her retreat in Tulum last April and realized it was time for Me. I came back to my yoga practice which I had put on hold for too many years. Joys messages and guidelines steered me back to self love and awareness. She beautifully outlined a holistic plan for a happier and healthier life all while incorporating self love and care.

Also the young and playful girl inside of me woke up.

I also did multiple breath work sessions with joy this past summer . The feeling is indescribable! But I will try;I felt a shift in painful stuck memories and or energy.I released emotions and then I felt freer ,it was incredible. I also felt my creative mind awaken I am grateful for Joy! And I hope to continue doing this very joyful work with her.
