She received her teaching certification through the Himalayan Institute in Buffalo, New York under the guidance of Rolf Sovik, director of the Buffalo Campus. She is a member of the Himalayan Teacher’s Association. Her interest in yoga and love of travel brought her to India in 2006 to continue her studies to obtain her 500-hour certification. Joyce is a certified reflexologist and a member of the Ontario College of Reflexology, having received her training through Shanti Parakh in Niagara Falls.  Through the Himalayan Institute Buffalo campus, Joyce has been certified as an Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist.   She has previously practiced and studied with Malissa Larson at Ashtanga Yoga Buffalo.  She is currently involved in an on-line training of Yin Yoga with Ekhart Yoga in the Netherlands.  Her personal practice continues to evolve. Her inspiration comes from the ancient teachings, from the writings and formal instruction of her teachers, from the wisdom of her students, from music, poetry, nature and the enduring joys and trials of life with her human and animal friends.
