Joy's Bio

From my early teens, I was fascinated by how food and nutrients are absorbed and processed by the body.  Nutrition began as a curiosity, and over the years has bloomed into a passion. My first love is food.  My second love is wellness. I'm an avid gardener, novice chef, and seasoned nutrition expert.


For the past 10 years, I have delved deeply into the science of healthy eating, and surrounded myself with scientific literature on nutrients and metabolism. For 3 years, I researched nutrition and taught college-level nutrition classes at Florida State University. I’ve authored hundreds of nutrition articles on topics from hormone health to unlocking the weight loss mindset. I have helped hundreds of clients lose thousands of pounds.


As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, I help my clients throughout the nation achieve their health and wellness goals. The essence of my work is to facilitate self-growth by helping you identify the core challenges and setbacks in your diet, so that you can overcome them with confidence. I specialize in creating personalized menus and plans and providing tools to guide you forward and achieve your desired goals. It would be an honor to work alongside you and help improve your quality of life, avoid chronic diseases, and add to your years of vitality.


To your health,


Joy Holway, MS, RDN

Favorite Class(es):

I love barre and all of the yoga classes. 

Why is that (are those) your favorite(s)?


  The barre classes give you a full body workout. You will definitely be “tucking” and “shaking” by the end of class!  The yoga classes are structured for all levels from beginning to intermediate to advanced. This is a judge free zone!  If there is a pose or position I am not able to do, there is always a modification that I CAN do! 

What makes 229 unique?

229 Yoga is a very friendly and welcoming studio.  The instructors are amazing. They explain all the moves so that you are challenged but also safe.
