Joyce welcomes everyone to enjoy their practice, find peace in every pose, try, and find flexibility and strength while maintaining a sense of humor. Joyce began her yoga practice in 2001 while her parents were battling cancer. She found it to be a relief from stress and a place where she could let go, re-center, and find her joy. She received her 200 hour training in 2005 through It’s Yoga Las Vegas under Maggie Verderame and Larry Schultz . She moved to CA and found her next mentor Anirudh Shastri, who she practiced under for 3 years. 2013 she received her 85 hour training for Prenatal Yoga under Jennifer Wolfe of Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga and became a trained doula through Dolphin Doula. Her focus in prenatal yoga is to create a safe environment where women can become in touch with their changing bodies, learn how to bring the baby into a perfect birthing position with the use of gravity, alignment and movement and learn techniques to calm the mind and senses for labor. In 2015 she received her 95 hour Children’s Yoga Teacher certification from The Lotus Seed School of Yoga and Movement Art in Portland, Oregon.
