Who is Yoga Bird?

Joyce Courtney aka Yoga Bird

Known for her “Be Your Own Bird” brand of yoga, Joyce Courtney, makes yoga and meditation accessible to everyone. Joyce says, “Often people avoid yoga because they think they are not flexible enough. Yoga Bird (and yoga in general) is NOT about being flexible! My Yoga Bird practices are specifically designed for women ages 40 and up. My emphasis is on appropriate movement, alignment and poses that help ease the symptoms of age-related issues, such as joint pain, muscle weakness and overall stiffness. Yoga Bird is helpful to EVERYONE and especially for those of us who have begun to feel the effects of “maturity!” I began practicing yoga when I was 45 and it has improved my life in countless ways. I know it can do the same for you. The word yoga means union. I love bringing it all together to improve peoples’ health and happiness!”

Joyce is happy living in the rolling hills of Lancaster County, PA with her musician husband, Steven at stevencourtney.com. They have two grown children. A son, Taylor, of Bring On The Bash who is married to Kelsey of kelseyraecourtney.com and a daughter, Brooke, married to T.J. both of walkinlove.com. Joyce LOVES spending a lot of time with her grandchildren June 4, Pearl 3, Gray 2, Sunny 1 and Goldie 7 months!! 😀

In addition to Yoga Bird, Joyce, loves to make and sell mosaics in her “Hen House Mosaic Studio.” You can see some of her work on her Facebook page @ Hen House Mosaic Studio. Joyce finds peace and solitude in tending to her many gardens and caring for her pet chickens, cat, goldfish and hermit crab.
