Joie Schmitz, RYT

After practicing yoga for nearly 10 years, Joie became a certified instructor through the 200-hour Jivan Yoga Teacher Training program at Baltimore Yoga Village. A former college athlete, Joie brings energy and movement to the yoga practice, while also acknowledging the body’s need for rest and rejuvenation in the same session. Her devotion to yoga and appreciation of its positive effects on body, mind and spirit shine through her unique classes. She believes that there is something new to discover with every yoga practice – from learning more about your own body to how to integrate yoga into your everyday life, outside of the studio. Joie teaches a wide variety of populations ranging from athletes to expectant mothers, children to corporate groups
