Joanie Flavin ~ Studio Owner/Yoga Teacher

Yoga has been a central focus of my life for over 10 years and I continue to discover my own potential through a daily yoga practice. I began my career in the fitness industry as a personal trainer. The addition of yoga to my life awarded me far greater flexibility, balanced strength and personal awareness. I am grateful and privileged to be able to share my life’s passion with others.

I have studied extensively with many inspirational instructors, having completed over 500 hours of teacher training with Ana Forrest in addition to having trained with Tias Little, Baron Baptiste, Beryl Bender Birch, Heather Tiddens and others. My own class style is a blend of heated Vinyasa yoga and healing Forrest yoga. My goal is to guide my students in the awakening of their own potential; though attention to injury or needs of the individual student, I strive to provide my students a place where they can safely overcome personal injury and gradually strengthen both physically and emotionally.

I am grateful to share the healing benefits of Thai yoga therapy with my clients for the last 5 years. Having studied with Ed Cardinal and Saul David Raye, I am thrilled to be able to offer individual therapeutic sessions as a certified Thai massage therapist. I am also a certified personal trainer through the American Council of Exercise, as well as a Certified Spin Instructor.
