Joey had been studying metaphysics for 30 years before he first tried yoga. He was instantly enraptured with its quality of moving prayer.

He has studied with Jai Uttal and since performed with Jai, Dave Stringer, Krishna Das, Wah!, Bhagavan Das, Shaman's Dream and recently at the Greek Theatre with India.Arie. He laughs that if he can just get you singing like you do in the shower, his work is done. He is often featured at Esalen Institute where he has co-led retreats and workshops with Shiva Rea, Seane Corn, Dr. Robert Svoboda, Saul David Raye, Michael Franti and many others. He enjoysoffering a non-sectarian approach to the deities, viewing them as symbols or aspects of consciousness.
