Our Story

Ki Ora, we’re Danica & Nick (Mr & Mrs Joy)

We started this journey in 2015 sharing yoga, meditation & mindfulness.

Our passion for mindful living has led us to teach all over Auckland, Wellington, Hamilton and Raglan. 

Mindfulness has had a profound impact on our life and we think it will for you too! It’s about being in the now – with acceptance, love, kindness and compassion. 

Jon Kabat-Zinn says it best “Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally”

Joyful Pooches

Mindfulness Gurus

Yogi and Bosco live and breathe joy. They’ve attended many of our mindfulness sessions – starting when they were just tiny little puppies. They bring so much happiness wherever they go – so if your a doggy fan, we can bring the pooches to you for community and corporate well-being.

Yogi’s favourite things are cuddles, all food types and swimming.

Bosco loves his toys, fetch, food and long walks on the beach. 

Our Philosophy

Mindfulness can help you be calmer, more open-minded, optimistic and grateful – it’s why we’ve practiced it for so many years and the reason we teach it. Because everyone deserves to live a joyful life. Mindfulness is about appreciating the small things, as well as the big.
