Joe Barnett has been our friend and assistant for many years.  He knows the anatomical and kinesiological principles of yoga practice.  He is enthusiastic about the subject.  His friendly manner sets students at ease.  All of these qualities make Joe an excellent presenter. 


We hope that many students will have the opportunity to discover this for themselves.

Studying with Joe provided me with clarity, inspiration, confidence and courage, both as a teacher and a practitioner. I remember my first training with Joe, I was surprised to be so fascinated in an anatomy class - not only did I understand it but I internalized it.

I enthusiastically recommend his courses to anyone who desires to deepen their understanding of Yin Yoga.

Given me the confidence to host a variety of yin trainings!

Joe is an intelligent, knowledgeable and approachable teacher. I use him as my trainer not only for his knowledge but because I trust him. Hs teaching comes from wisdom and experience. If you are thinking of doing a yin training don’t hesitate. You will love it and learn a lot from Joe.  If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t have been able to write my book. Highly recommended!
