Mari Joy Massage and Yoga

My name is Mari Joy, a Licensed Massage Therapist and Yoga Teacher based in Albuquerque NM. My heart rests in exploring internal and external worlds.

You can tell yourself a hundred times that you can’t or shouldn’t do something.

...but start to follow that ONE time you tell yourself to go for it.
See what starts to happen.

I just taught my first continuing education course!!
Wahwahhh!!!

I am beyond thrilled, beyond grateful for the students that came, and eternally in awe at what I can do when the voice of YES I CAN speaks louder.

This is the beginning. ✨🙏 @ The Source Health and Community Wabi-Sabi Oasis

DOING IT - I’m teaching my first massage therapy CEU course tomorrow. I feel SO thrown out of the nest, yet completely on the path that’s meant for me. I’m asking, compelling myself to grow into the person that I want to be for myself and for others. Sure, I’ll be teaching my students lots of info about self care and the subtle body, but more importantly I’m exposing my self, instigating a space for collective healing and vulnerability. I’ve had to do a lot of growth and introspection just in preparation for this first class; by teaching the work we ARE the work. May this be the first course of MANY. 🙏💚 #massagetherapist #massage #selfcare #pemachodron #healing #massageceus #continuingeducation #circlealign #yogateacher #dothething #entrepreneur #womensupportingwomen

Facebook showed me that 3 years ago today, this was my view of the world. I sailed the high seas of the Columbia River as a massage and yoga pirate, and I truly loved that identity. However, 2 years ago I was in Albuquerque with my own business. 1 year ago I was working in remote Alaska. Today I went to the dentist during a pandemic. You never know what’s around the corner, or how our identities will change over time. Stay open to the shift, change is literally the only thing that will ever happen. 🙏💚 #massagepirate #massagetherapist #massage #nomad #columbiariver #oregon #oregonexplored #circlealign #yoga #entrepreneur

...and another backyard massage with sunflowers! I’ve been slowly getting back into massage, with seeing just friends/family in their yards, masks-on. It has already MAJORly shifted my experience of life right now, to sink back in to my profession-passion, to be of help and service, and to focus my intention more around stress and trauma release. I love this work. My clients love this work. Everything is going to be okay. 💚🙏

Polar, you’ve been my ride or die through these courses. I’ve been taking a number of cultural competency and racism trainings to make sure that I have the tools that I need to speak effectively and accurately within the massage/wellness world. Making progress. This one was quite good; PLUS it’s a FREE Ethics CEU for LMT’s if you take it through the end of this month, and there’s a free version for the general public. Take a few hours out of your life for this one. Go to reach4ce dot org to take it. #massage #massagetherapy #racialjustice #beginnersmind #dothework #circlealign

Well, here we go!! I’m teaching my first CEU Course sooner than I thought, due to time-sensitivity of license renewals coming up.

It’s so thrilling and weird to teach something that came just from my head. These are profound healing practices that have greatly altered my life, that I put together in a way that makes sense to me. And now here we are, able to experience them together for professional credits.

Due to social distancing, space is very limited. The class is half full already. DM me to sign up today!

-This course is limited to Massage Therapists only- stay tuned for another session in September that I’ll open up to EVERYone!- #massagetherapy #massage #selfcare #yoga #kosha #pranayama #continuingeducation #ncbtmbapprovedprovider #circlealign #entrepreneur

I should be high as a kite right now. I just scored all of these high-quality essential oils at bulk cost!

But the reason for the sale is that my legendary, profoundly transformative massage school has gone under. COVID hastened an already precarious situation for them.

In addition, the pandemic has caused the only other holistically-minded school in New Mexico to close their doors (will they re-open? Who knows.)

My feelings around my school closing are so complicated; I’m grieving the loss of an amazingly special space that transformed my life, and the lives of hundreds of other practitioners. I’m grieving the way that energetic and ‘woo-woo’ education is becoming harder and harder to come by, pushed to the most fringe spaces.

I’m also curious and excited about the potential that this gives others to build something in it’s place. Post-pandemic, when the dust settles, something will arise from the ashes. I’m sure of it.

For now, goodbye and thank you, New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics. 💚🙏

Holy CRAP, this is me!!! I am now a Massage Therapy CEU Approved Provider!!! It has taken a LOT of work for this to be reality, but it’s showing me the hustle and perseverance is worth it and is paying off. Me. I did this. Several months of course design and digging deep, 1 month later I taught the course, and 4 months later it was approved. This sh*t takes TIME, but it’s worth it; this is the most important work of my life so far. I have one approved course (details coming soon!) and several more that I am now on FIRE to design. Keep going, y’all!!! 💪🏼💚😍 #massagetherapy #massagetherapist #ncbtmb #ncbtmbapprovedprovider #circlealign #massageceu #entrepreneur #dothething

This young man was killed last year. We are learning about it now. Does this one cut deeper because he too was a massage therapist who lived just one state over, in a town that I know? I think so; my rage has a few origins. Because I’ve also noticed, in the now-trending #elijahmcclain murder, that NO national massage organization has posted about Elijah. Almost no org has even acknowledged #blacklivesmatter or has taken an anti-racist stance. This is absolutely disgusting. We are living in a white-woman-wellness world and we HAVE to change this complicit industry. The public health crisis of racism is alive and well within ‘wellness’. #f**kwhitesupremacy #whitewomanwellness

I have been quiet here lately; mostly because my move back to Albuquerque, after a year of travel and in the midst of a pandemic, has been much more turbulent than I had imagined it could be. I’ve felt paralyzed, with so many thoughts and ideas swimming in my head but not wanting to f**k up on this platform. And now, with the crisis of systemic racism also being more visible and crucial to dismantle, the only way I can truly f**k up is by staying silent. I commit myself, as a white voice in the wellness, massage therapy, and yoga teacher world, to work towards changing my-self, being actively anti-racist, and changing the wellness industry. Much more to come. 🖤🙏 #circlealign #massagetherapist #yogapractice #dothework #f**kwhitesupremacy

I’m coming to the heavy realization that the massage I gave yesterday will likely be the last one I give for quite some time- tourism has all but ended here, and I’m coming back to the US soon, to a touch-less world. It feels SO sad that people can’t revive therapeutic touch right now (of ALL times), and also that this part of my professional life is taking a pause. I’ve created Circle Align as my new venture, as a platform to teach and creatively push my life in new directions, and now the nature of our new global reality is also thrusting me in that direction. I’m trying to soften into the logistical/financial instability, softening into the global pause and re-alignment of ourselves and our society. #circlealign #massagepirate #align #uncertaintimes #yogateacher #notouchy #costarica #entrepreneur

Last night, right after work ended until past midnight, words came overflowing onto my computer screen. What came out is an article about Self-Care and Transformation, practices that I do almost every day that have transformed my relationship to myself and my life. They offer enormous structure and direction, something that is very needed in the uncertainty of being in limbo, being quarantined, not having answers. I hope that you find value in it within this wildly unprecedented time, and beyond. It was very important for me to write this, as a small way for me to feel empowered with being so far away, to share my experience and play a supporting role in anyone’s current struggle. Link in bio. (Also, to make the article live I had to finally make my VERY unfinished website live - with slow jungle WiFi it’s a work in progress.) - - I can count myself as very fortunate that this is part of my work today- picking these beautiful Neem leaves to use this medicine for making oils, powders, scrubs. Being a maker and creator - especially now!- helps me feel grounded, filled-up, and sometimes (happily) distracted. Lots of love to all of you. #selfcare #yogateacher #yoga #dailymotivation #dailyroutine #structure #ayurveda #neem #plantsofinstagram #coronavirus #costarica #circlealign #massagepirate

My best.

Hi all! I've been in Denver all week to take a yoga workshop by Seane Corn! It has been outSTANDing and powerful and a deep exploration.

Our usual views of yoga as being a physical practice only scratches the surface of what this workshop explores. As the body holds many traumas and emotions that are held in our tensions, yoga is a vehicle for releasing these tensions and therefore releasing our mind and spirit into wholeness with our body.

Although I'm not hugely confident in my yoga teaching abilities, I am ready. I'm ready and I'm privileged to bring this perspective into the yoga classroom and teach yoga, for once, on land instead of on a boat 🙂
...I'm lookin at you Albuquerque.

Have a wonderful day 🙏

New guidelines from the American College of Physicians recommend trying massage therapy, yoga, and exercise as your first line of defense against back pain!

[02/21/17]   Although LMT generally means Licensed Massage Therapist, the other meaning is Luxurious Monster Truck. Because that's what a good massage might feel like.
