About The Joy Center

 

joyindexThe Joy Center is the place inside you, the center of your being, where you feel entirely at peace, and can walk forward into the world without fear. The Joy Center offerings begin at the most powerful part of our beings: the heart.

Marissa Krupa RYT-200, founded The Joy Center to create a space where people of all ages, sizes, and backgrounds can explore their bodies in a safe & healing way. She began practicing Iyengar yoga over 10 years ago while living in San Francisco.  Marissa Krupa became a 200-hour certified yoga instructor from Chicago Yoga Center, and a certified reiki practitioner from Master Teacher Linda Herrick.

Marissa believes the body doesn't lie. When an injury or illness surfaces in the body, it's often a result of a mental or emotional habit. Yoga and reiki are the bridge for uniting the body and mind to clear away injury, illness, and suffering. Chemical-free products maintain body energy harmony, and keep illness at bay.

Clients of The Joy Center experience yoga and reiki-based techniques that open their hearts, allowing them to walk more full-bodied into the world. Come explore what it means to be joyful with us; from Marissa's heart to yours, welcome!

“Then indecision brings its own delays, and days are lost lamenting o'er lost days. Are you in earnest? Seize this very minute; What you can do, or dream you can, begin it; Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)
