Joyce Savitz enjoys the distinction of being the first trained MELT instructor in Northeast Florida. Joyce finds much personal satisfaction through helping other people to learn how to look and feel better with MELT each week. With sessions at her JacksonvilleYoga.com studio, and at select locations in the Jacksonville area, Joyce has helped many local people learn how to improve sleep, breathing, digestion, energy level, and achieve an improved feeling of overall well being. 

MELT helps to re-hydrate connective tissue, enhance body awareness, and quiet nervous systems. Having an extensive background not only in Yoga but also MELT and Massage Therapy allows Joyce Savitz to be Jacksonville’s best trained expert in helping her clients get out of pain and feel the freedom to enjoy life fully!

Since 2012, Joyce has delved herself in working more with connective tissue. Since being a massage therapist since 1984, she recognized how much relief was brought to her clients. Working with rollers seemed to help as well because it was working with connective tissue. As we age the connective tissue gets more dehydrated. Joyce experienced this in 2012 with lower back and knee pain. Working with the connective tissue helped her relieve her pain more than yoga! What a predicament! However working with the Bowspring Yoga she realized that it honed in more on connective tissue which made total since. This is why she is now teaching this area, yet again, another brand new way to work their body mind and spirit. “This is not a form that the masses will follow YET” says Joyce If you are open to a brand new way to work that will relieve your pain and open your spirit, Join us!!
