Welcome! And thank you for visiting my website and exploring how I may be able to support you on your path. My name is Joy Maziar and I am an integrative somatic healer, holistic wellness guide and transformational facilitator living in beautiful Bali, Indonesia.
Over the last 15 years I have dedicated myself to cultivating a powerful body of wisdom teachings and healing modalities, including holistic nutrition, meditation, breath work, subconscious repatterining, myofascial release massage, essential oil therapy, over 800 hours of advanced bodywork and massage training, and over 500 hours of diverse yoga teacher training.
I am blessed to travel internationally sharing my work with groups, individuals and at workshops and events. I’m passionate about supporting you with life-changing tools and practices that will help you to live in your highest alignment, feel great in your body and reclaim your power.
What I want to share with you is that the reason I’ve devoted my life in this way is because I went through an intensely challenging initiation in my life, through the depths of trauma, addiction, depression and suffering that eventually led me to find my true path and discover my innate gifts as a healer.
I came from a background that was filled with pain and dysfunction and I lost my mother to substance abuse when I was just a small child. By the time I got to my teenage years, the grief and heaviness had gotten too much to bear and I numbed the intensity of it all with substances for several years.
I left home at just 16 yet somehow managed to graduate and attain a scholarship to college. Everything was laid out for me to take a conventional path, my dorm room was all ready for me and the college scholarship had opened the door to a path that it seemed I was supposed to walk.
Yet somehow, when I felt into my body and my inner knowing, everything inside me was telling me to run in the other direction.
Fortunately I had someone in my life who was the voice of Spirit for me in that moment. She said “Joy, you know you want to go to massage school and be a healer more than anything. Forget the scholarship. Follow your heart. It will work out for you somehow.”
After that turning point I have never looked back and never once regretted my choice to blaze my own path in this lifetime. As fate would have it, just down the street was one of the most acclaimed massage schools on the West Coast of the United States, and I went on to learn and excel in a wide variety of modalities over the following year including: acupressure, acupuncture, meridian alignment, craniosacral, reiki, hot stone therapy, cupping and the study of anatomy and physiology.
After the massage school I moved to the Virgin Islands for several years. On the outside, it seemed like I had it all: a successful massage practice, a cute boyfriend, an active social life, and I was living in a tropical paradise… Yet my unintegrated core wounding was weighing heavily on me, and I had started drinking more and more to get by.
I knew I had hit rock bottom when I started making reckless, self-sabotaging decisions, and I could see that there was something inside me that was crying out for help. I reached out to a friend who was in AA and committed to turning my life around and doing the deeper inner work required to truly live my purpose.
In that turning point moment, I dedicated myself to being a ray of hope for healing and transformation for others, no matter what they’ve been through.
Eventually I started feeling a strong pull to relocate to Bali, Indonesia, and although I knew no one there, I took the leap of faith and followed my inner knowing.
Bali has been home ever since, and it is in Bali that I discovered a life-changing self-empowerment practice called InnerGuidance.
InnerGuidance is a modality that fuses a variety of processes including therapeutic and transformational mapped visualizations and unique coaching tools for life-changing results and integrative sustainable support.
It is now one of the main modalities I work with, and I love facilitating this work with individuals, groups and at events.
When I’m in Bali, you can find me teaching workshops and yoga classes at Radiantly Alive Yoga Studio, and working 1-on-1 with clients. I’d love to connect with you and discuss how I may be able to bring the powerful practices and processes I teach to your community or event. If you’d like to explore this, or connect about working together individually, please fill out this simple contact form at : www.holisticintuitivebodywork.com/contact
I look forward to being in touch, and send many blessings from my heart to yours!
"Most people have no idea how your body is designed to feel." - Kevin Trudeau
Integrated Bodywork is my own unique and powerful combination of myofascial massage, InnerGuidance Method and essential oil therapy. This blend of alternative medicinal practices, complemented by deeply guided intuition, restores the body to it’s natural state of vibrancy and internal energy flow by releasing any trauma or stagnant energy stored within the fascia and cellular memory.
Treatments last approximately 2-3 hours, with time allowed either side for pre-consultation and post-treatment sharing of follow-up practices and tools you can take away with you to continue nurturing the body.
Yin yoga is the practice of yoga asana (postures) that offer a deep stretch, as we connect to our breath and body, remaining in any one posture for 3-5 minutes. By slowing down and attuning ourselves to the language of our physical form, we learn how to pause, breathe gently into our experience and then move with grace further into all that is present in each moment.
Yoga teaches us how to move through life with greater ease, by highlighting the physical, mental and emotional strength we may not have recognised within ourselves before. It allows us to relate to the many aspects our our human experience, demonstrating our inherent ability to find personal balance, inviting us to lean into our challenges, and offering an opportunity to explore the inner sanctuary and haven we create for ourselves within our own being through mindful practice.
Whether to complement bodywork treatments, develop a personal practice, or to share yoga with a group of special individuals, I offer deeply nourishing and whole-systems approach to yin yoga classes.
"It is through your body that you realize you are a spark of divinity." - B.K.S. Iyengar
Through the rediscovery of a deep relationship with the physical body, our capacity to heal is placed back in our hands. When we reach for holistic and natural tools for health, we embark upon a journey through which we have a real opportunity to re-establish our rootedness and our groundedness in life, reflecting the ancient inherent wisdom of the natural world, existing in symbiosis with all that lives and breathes on the planet. Much like the trees of the forest, we must be firmly rooted in our experience, working in interdependence with our environment, and in understanding of our natural ability to self-heal and receive all that we need to thrive.
As deeply healing Integrated Bodywork begins the process of restoring you to your natural state of balance and vitality, Yin Yoga further supports your unfolding by retraining the fascia and muscles to work in a new way, creating strength, resilience and flow within the body and within your life. Yin Yoga practice continues the work that Integrated Bodywork starts, by providing ongoing practical tools for taking charge of your well being.
"As spiritual adults we accept the responsibility of co-creating our lives and our health. Co-creation is in fact the essence of spiritual adulthood. It is the exercise of choice and the acceptance of our responsibility of those choices." - Anatomy of the Spirit
The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is just that little ‘extra’
