Introducing   JOYFLOW INSTITUTE!  


Hello, I am so excited to announce that I am transitioning from teaching yoga classes, both at my studio which was my cherished oasis for about 30 years, closing in 2017, and then in more recent years, around the Metro-Jackson area. We are entering a new time of Spiritual Awakening and it is my great desire to serve a more global population and offer my life-time of training and experience to help those who are suffering from stress, anxiety and depression AND to support those who are caregivers and therapists who also need some good TLC.


I have continued to serve my local area by being a yoga mentor and training teachers who are now found in studios and centers around Jackson and all over the Southeast. I have continued to graduate new teachers in a 200 Hour program registered with the Yoga Alliance for consecutive years. Right now, we are doing our Teacher Training all online and who knows how the next training will evolve. 

It is my great to joy to be able to offer my 30+ years of experience and training to more people who need them. I am organizing a 3 Month Transformational Course, titled "Awaken to Joy with Yoga & Enneagram, which will launch in July.

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

Joyflow Nine Ways

or go to:


Each Weekday Noon (Central time) I am offering a short meditation. Each Friday noon I am offering a longer meditation and a teaching on the Enneagram. I welcome your questions and interactions and these will guide my themes for these classes. You can also find all of this to access anytime in the group Units.

Special Announcement!!!

July 13-17 I will be offering a full Enneagram Workshop titled 
"5 Days Into Joy". If you would like the FREE workbook that goes with FREE training, I will need your request with your email, and text if you would like text reminders. After this weeklong workshop, if you would like more support I will be offering a special invitation to work with me for 3 Transformational Months!
