Joyce began practicing yoga in 2010 when a friend invited her to class. At the time, she was the heaviest person in the class, but no matter how challenging it was, she kept going back for something other than the physical practice. After being away from studio practice for a few years and accumulating additional weight, she began a self-guided journey to better health that included a home yoga practice. Moving back to Louisville in 2015, she returned to studio practice and reconnected to something bigger than herself. 
Through a healthy lifestyle that includes daily yoga practice, she maintains her nearly 100-pound weight loss. She enjoys personal study of yoga principles and philosophy, with an emphasis on the yamas and niyamas. The desire to deepen her personal study led to yoga teacher training during 2015-2016 and she has been teaching ever since. As a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT200), Joyce enjoys exploring and teaching a variety of yoga styles ranging from gentle yoga to power vinyasa. Her jam is inspiring and encouraging others to explore the edges of their comfort zones on the mat in a fun and supportive community atmosphere and applying what they discover in their daily lives. She believes at times, that may be learning to quiet the mind and providing the body with quieter physical postures. At others, that may be dropping into the physical body and generating a little sweat through more active postures. Taking what we practice and learn about ourselves on the mat and putting it into action in our daily lives is where the real work truly begins. Joyce believes most yoga practitioners need a combination of gentle and active practice to achieve equanimity.

Off the mat, Joyce works with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities as a Licensed Behavior Analyst. She enjoys spending time with her adult children, their spouses, being the best Jamma she can be to her granddaughter, and spending time with her four-legged fur baby, Paisley. Joyce also enjoys running, warm sunshine, smiles, hugs and exploring the boundaries of her own comfort zone.

I first found yoga in college when I went to an acting school in California. I had no knowledge or awareness of it prior to that but I really enjoyed the physicality and the way it helped me grow as an actor. Over the years, I came back to it off and on. I was drawn to it again after experiencing a significant trauma. What I learned during that time I cannot transcribe into words and I wanted to be able to share that healing with others. I took my 200 hour teacher training at Supreme Peace yoga in 2018. I love teaching teens because yoga teaches life skills and learning how to regulate and manage emotions at that stage will help catapult them into their life as a young adult. Teaching teens also adds a playful aspect of yoga that you don't often get in adult classes.

Lindsey.jpeg

After a period of grief in her life Lindsey found herself seeking holistic mental and spiritual healing. She herself had been somewhat of a natural healer to others, but never considered healing for herself until that period of loss. She didn’t fully explore her gifts until later when she discovered the healing power of Reiki. After studying under Reiki Master Malinda Durbin in Louisville KY, Lindsey became a Reiki practitioner. It wasn’t long before Lindsey found herself also practicing Yoga 2 and 3 times a day at home for mental balance and clarity. Her need to share the healing benefits of Yoga led her to 200 hour Yoga teacher training at Supreme Peace Yoga and Wellness, which was completed in October 2019. With Yoga being her life’s work, In her spare time, you might find Lindsey in the mountain tops of Appalachia either experiencing all the beauty that mother nature has to offer or she may be doing charity work for the unseen parts of the region. She enjoys gardening, art, dancing and sharing joy with others. Some things that you may experience in a Yoga class with Lindsey are self love, healing, freedom, empowerment, laughter, joy and an over all sense of belonging.

Teaching and leading for over 20 yrs in the yoga, health, and wellness community in Louisville, KY. My inspiration is to share with people the profoundly healing benefits of yoga.  I am an Ayurveda wellness practitioner. I studied at the Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa. My Ayurveda practice incorporates self-pulse reading and the foundation principles to assist my clients towards the quality of personal Presence that supports individual and global thriving.

It was yoga and Ayurveda that saved my life after surviving spinal cord injury and surgery. Yoga gave me the motivation to stay healthy and the ability to liberate myself from the complicated emotional journey. Come as you are and meet me on the mat to explore a deep sense of relaxation that will create more space for you mentally and spiritually.
