Jace Maxwell Yoga
Jace Maxwell, E-RYT 200, RYT 500, YACEP, Reiki Master is the owner of Zen Yoga Roanoke, and is well-loved there for her bright energy and compassionate spirit.
Throughout her childhood and teenage years, Jace struggled with her weight, depression and body image issues. Jace was in college when she discovered yoga. Her initial focus was on meditation and the more spiritual aspects of this tradition. Learning the history of yoga and the mythology that is deeply interwoven pushed her to dive deeper into all aspects of Yoga. In an effort to deepen her meditation practice, she started a daily asana (physical yoga) routine with a few girlfriends. After a few months of regular practice, she knew she had found the missing piece to finding her inner happiness. As Jace continued a regular asana practice, she realized that she wasn’t just healing herself on the inside. Over time she worked her way to a healthy weight. At that point, she realized by learning how to love herself, she had finally stopped worrying about her body image and found a healthy path to a healthy mind and body.
Jace is a Reiki master and teacher, she has a 500 hour certification in Hatha Yoga and has taught over 3000 hours of yoga classes. She is continually inspired by yoga’s transformative power—both internally and externally, and finds it to be a source of love and strength. She strives to bring a sense of fun, freedom and kindness to her classes, and hopes to impart nuggets of yogic wisdom along the way.
