Because we ALL  Can

Jessica Papasidero

Joyce started taking yoga in March 2016 after having a total shoulder replacement to regain mobility and flexibility. After taking classes regularly she immediately loved what it did for her mind, body and health. 

Joyce then took her practice further by becoming certified in a 200 hour teacher training in May 2017 at Alma Yoga located here in the Hudson Valley. 

Joyce then expanded her education and is also certified in Yin Yoga February 2018, and Certified in Reiki October 2018. 

Joyce’s class is a combination of creative and purposeful sequences, a spirit of playfulness and a dose of inspiration to help deepen your practice. Joyce enjoys teaching all forms of yoga and loves getting to know her students and their individual needs of their practice.

After going to the gym and doing the same boring workouts day after day and not seeing any results, Jessica started taking Zumba classes in November 2011 to get in shape and look good for her brother's wedding - and fell in love immediately! After only a couple of months, she quickly realized that not only was Zumba helping her lose weight and transform her body, but it was also a fun and healthy way to let loose, relieve stress, and make new friends!

Jessica continued to take Zumba classes for several more years, until she finally decided to take the plunge and go from student to instructor! She got licensed to teach Zumba in April 2016 and by August she was already leading her first class. In the summer of 2017, she expanded her training and became licensed to teach Zumba Kids & Kids Jr and Zumba Gold, a lower-intensity Zumba format that is geared towards older adults and people returning to exercise after an injury.

In January 2018, Jessica made a commitment to put her health first in her life, which meant adapting better nutrition habits (less processed foods, more vegetables!) and making fitness a priority. After falling in love with her new lifestyle, Jessica then took her fitness journey a step further and became a Certified PiYo LIVE Instructor in November 2018.

Jessica enjoys teaching and is committed to helping people reach their health and fitness goals while having fun at the same time.
