About 3S

At 3S we are dedicated to making a yoga experience that is athletic, fun and accessible. We provide a safe, non-judgmental environment encouraging flexibility, strength, energy and community. Our signature 3S class is a HIIT (high intensity interval training) yoga movement class that will strengthen your body, stretch your muscles and sweat the rest out. Our vinyasa classes connect breath, body and movement creating a dynamic, athletic yoga experience. We couldn't be happier to open our first yoga studio in Richmond and are grateful to have found the teachers and community that we have found.

Come join us and see what we can do for you!
We would love to have you

Joy’s since completed her 200- and 500-hr certifications through Yoga Source in Richmond, VA and Boston Yoga School in MA. With a background rooted in the sciences, Joy’s teaching emphasizes an observer’s inquisitive awareness and cultivation of presence in postures both on and off the mat. Joy’s teaching has been inspired by senior teachers in Ashtanga, Iyengar, Tantra, Yin yoga, meditation and mindfulness, somatic movement and bodywork and she is blessed to have studied with a breadth of teachers globally who have each transmitted impactful nuggets of wisdom that have and continue to shape her practice and teaching. She is continually grateful for the amazing circle of fellow students, seekers and yogi friends, who provide her with the gift of open-heartedness, unmasked presence and clear reflections. Her current favorite travel destination to drop into practice with fellow students is in Nosara, Costa Rica where she’s traveled each of the past four years to study in the Tantric lineage, most recently with Rod Stryker at Blue Spirit. In addition to her yoga studies, Joy holds bachelor’s and doctorate degrees in Chemistry from the University of Virginia, has worked extensively for global healthcare companies that have taken her all over the world to live and work and currently spends her working days bringing mindfulness into the workplace.
