Joy Alegria

Joy Alegria is presently an International Certifications Project Manager at Microsoft, the Program Services Coordinator for the non-profit Alive & Shine Foundation and a meditation teacher at Alive & Shine Center in Bellevue, WA.

Joy has been working in the engineering field since 1998 when she graduated with a B.S. in Physics and Mathematics. She was drawn to yoga in 2001 as a way to find relaxation, health and something "more." In 2007 she found that something when she joined Savitri's ongoing meditation class at Alive & Shine Center. Learning to focus the mind and listen to her heart has been the greatest gift in Joys life. It has allowed her to have a more loving relationship with herself and with others and helped her discover the power of her voice. Whether she is singing, speaking to a friend one-on-one, leading a meeting, teaching a class or just chatting on the radio with her "sisters," it is her heart now that guides her.
