Joelle is a lifelong movement enthusiast. Beginning at age 4, she spent more than a decade as a gymnast before switching to springboard and platform diving. When hip surgery ended her diving career, she dove headlong into competitive Latin and ballroom dancing. Joelle first fell in love with Yoga Stream after meeting Lara at a community class that featured challenging sequences, inversions, and nontraditional music. The rational alignment based approach and emphasis on core was a perfect way to gain strength and confidence and has opened her up to a complete change in perspective.
