Supreme Peace has been the perfect place to begin exploring yoga. The pace is slow and easy and deliberate. Jodie and Tiffany are in tune with each student’s needs and are very welcoming and encouraging. The studio is light and bright and peaceful. I love it here!
I began practicing yoga in late 2010 when a friend invited me to
class. I showed up for the physical practice not really knowing
what to expect (yoga was for “other” people). I was the biggest
person in the class, but no matter how challenging it was (we had
no props), I kept coming back for something other than the physical
After being away from studio practice for a few years, upon moving back to Louisville in 2015, I was pulled to the mat once again and was blessed to find Jodie and Supreme Peace Yoga. I found that “something else” again and now live immersed in asana and a personal study of yoga principles and philosophy (with an emphasis on the yamas and niyamas).
Off the mat, in my daily work with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities as a Licensed Behavior Analyst, yoga is often incorporated with the principles of applied behavior analysis. Several times a week, you are likely to find me running local and regional trails or races. Trail running is a form of “moving meditation” for me, bringing me closer to nature and knowing my true Self. I take what I learn on the mat onto the trails to enhance my athletic abilities through increased flexibility and strength…especially breathing!
