Joey Miles, Joey Miles, Rachel Woolhouse,

Joey came to Yoga in 1998 after a mis-spent youth pursuing the circus, martial arts and physical theatre.  He was an apprentice of Hamish Hendry at Ashtanga Yoga London and was authorised to teach by the KPJAYI in 2004 and later with level 2 authorisation.  Joey taught the Mysore programme at Triyoga, Primrose Hill, London for several years before moving to Leeds and setting up Yorkshire's first 5 day a week Mysore programme: Ashtanga Yoga Leeds.  Joey continues to devote himself to sustaining the Leeds Mysore community.  It is his intention to bring clarity and emphasis to sound alignment within the Ashtanga system, thereby demonstrating the unity among the different schools of yoga.

Grounded and approachable, Joey's 'common sense' approach to Ashtanga stems from his deep respect for the traditional method of practice, combined with experimental knowledge of alignment and anatomy.  Joey brings a frsh pair of eyes to your practice, giving guidance on how to work with the sequence and how to make the sequence work for you.  Joey's pragmatism, humour and caring nature will leave you feeling inspired and deeply connected with your practice.
