Jennica Joyce

Yoga & Babywearing Dance Instructor

I have been dancing since diapers while my tap dance teaching Mama carried me. As a registered yoga teacher with my Masters in Public Health, I have continued to practice the healing power of human connection and movement in my own life. I have taught, performed, and studied dance and yoga throughout Southern California. Beginning in 2014, I started bringing weekly yoga classes to my peers while working as an informaticist at Inland Empire Health Plan in Rancho Cucamonga.

In February 2017, when I was 8 months pregnant, my husband Alex and I moved to Joshua Tree to raise our family while living among fellow villagers who care about the environment, their bodies, and their minds. Living next to a truly magical National Park is a huge bonus. A childbirth education class at Desert Birth & Wellness along with our doula Jenn provided the tools we needed to make our natural hospital childbirth a reality.

After bringing my first born son Gunnar into this world on April Fools Day 2017, no joke, I found babywearing to fit perfectly with my active lifestyle and belief in the importance of connecting. As a new Mom, I have been choreographing dances and refining my yoga practice accordingly ever since. I look forward to sharing and guiding other parents and caregivers as a yoga and babywearing dance instructor at Desert Birth & Wellness.

Peace and Love,

Jennica Joyce
