Who is Yoga Bird?

Known for her “Be Your Own Bird” brand of yoga, Joyce Courtney makes simple yoga and meditation accessible to everyone. “Often people avoid yoga because they think they are not flexible enough. Yoga Bird (and yoga in general) is NOT about being flexible!” Joyce says. “The practice, I teach, is about integrating breathing techniques, alignment and core work using basic poses with creative sequencing. Yoga Bird IS helpful to everyone no matter your age or stage of life. The word yoga means union. I love bringing it all together to help improve everyone’s health and happiness!”

Joyce finds peace and solitude in tending her gardens and caring for her pet chickens, cat and goldfish. “As human beings, we are a trinity - we are spirit, have a soul and live in a body. It is vital to bring self care to all three areas, growing ourselves into whole and complete beings.”
