our story

Both lifelong athletes, Joyce a figure competitive figure skater and James a runner, yoga made sense in their bodies first and then opened their minds and then started to change their lives.

With backgrounds in corporate America and small business, coupled with the entrepreneurial spirit, James and Joyce first discussed the idea of opening a studio in the fall of 2014. After months of research and planning, the James Joyce LLC was formed in March of 2015 with the intention of opening a Hot Power Yoga studio in Strongsville, Ohio.

They both have teacher certifications through Live Love Teach. Owned and operated by Stacy Dockins and Phil Urso, Live Love Teach classes are truly breath-based and challenging. They are the most powerful classes that James and Joyce have ever practiced. They are both are excited to bring this type of practice to the Greater Cleveland area.
