Carmen Joy moved from her native country of Slovenia to California where she has been a devoted student of the ancient tradition of yoga and meditation for many years.
From the high tops of the Himalayan Mountains, to the South Indian Vedantic lifestyle ashrams, to the modern meditation resorts, Carmen's encounters with many spiritual teachers from different traditions sparked a light in her own being.
During this interview, Carmen describes what is meditation, why there are so many techniques, how to cultivate your daily practice, why breath work is so important, what is mindfulness, and how the meditation helps in balancing daily life.
Carmen currently studies under Himalayan monk and yogi, His Holiness Swami Vidyadhishananda, and conducts weekly meditation classes and workshops in Woodland Hills, California where she resides with her family.
She offers transformational meditation techniques from the ancient traditions in a group setting as well as individual sessions. Carmen’s dance and meditation work, taught in a light, playful, and accessible way, has lead her to teach across the US, Europe and India.
Many people also know her from her healthy vega retain cooking and variety of cooking workshops. She also teaches regular meditation classes in a corporate setting, helping employees release tension and stress from the body and mind.
