Christa Mastrangelo Joyce

Coordinator of Children's Education & Youth Programs

Christa Mastrangelo Joyce worked for eight years as professor of English for Dean College in Massachusetts and for American University in Washington, DC. She is a published poet and journalist. After the birth of her daughter in 2006, Christa completed her first Yoga teacher training certification and transitioned her great love of teaching to the world of the body. She has since been teaching yoga, running a local yoga studio, and training students to become yoga teachers, all while pairing this practice with her love of writing, poetry, and literature through her blog posts. Another primary focus is her family, with many hours of her week aligned to her role as a homeschooling mama of her two children. As her work in yoga has grown, so has her connection to the great Spirit of God present in all. Her work with SPC's children's program is a natural extension of her years of teaching, her work to understand and connect to the body, her first love of poetry and storytelling, and her basic understanding of growing children.
