Introducing   JOYFLOW INSTITUTE!  


We are entering a new time of Spiritual Awakening and it is my great desire to serve a more global population, no longer limited to a local yoga studio.  I'm now focusing on offering my lifetime of training and experience in both Yoga and Enneagram to offer teaching and coaching to Yoga Teachers, Yoga Practitioners, and Enneagram Enthusiasts to go deeper into how these practices can be combined for greater self-awareness, healing and wholeness.  I also have a special place in my heart to help those suffering from stress, anxiety and depression, in developing a transformative personal practice.

Please contact me if you are curious and have questions:


email:  deb@joyflowyoga.com for application for our next Joyflow Teacher Training beginning in February 2021.

I invite you to join me in my new Facebook group:

Enneagram for Yogis:


Join the group for inspiration and uplifting community!

What's happening there now is a Free introduction to Joyflow Teacher Training from January 18-26. Please email or message me if you would like the workbook. deb@joyflowyoga.com / Debi Saraswati Lewis on FB
