Welcome to the first edition of our Community Spotlight. Each month we will showcase one of our superstar tenants so that you can learn more about what they do, who they are, and what they love!
Today the spotlight shines on North Kingstown resident Joanie Flavin. Joanie is the owner of Lotus Fire Yoga and Healing, located on the main level of the Mill. Joanie chose to base her business at the Mill because it is her community and she has raised her twin daughters here for over 13 years. She has been a part of the Mill At Lafayette since 2002 and has enjoyed watching the historic location grow over the years. “The mill has a modern feel for business and offers a great place to do good work. It is small enough to feel personal yet big enough for the diversity of businesses. I am inspired by the feel of hardworking people from many walks of life that are working their passion. Tuni has created a niche in the community that links us all and allows for a friendly work environment.” She also loves the historical vibe of this unique, dynamic working mill community. “The natural elements of the building are very conducive to healing work.” And Joanie knows about healing work!
“I have been in the field of yoga for 17 years and a studio owner since 2006. I have been a Thai yoga massage therapist for ten years, as well. My inspiration is in the healing arts through the ancient teaching of both private yoga and Thai Therapy. I have made it a study of movement and how it affects the wellbeing of the body and the mind. This link between the physical and emotional body affects our health and lifestyle.”
Joanie is endlessly inspired by her work. “There are many nuances to the mind/body connection. Due to my experience and study, I have become more in tune with this and can help others find their own deeper well being. I feel a purpose to this work that authentically helps people. Supporting people’s healing is important to me. To help be a guide to on finding their own inner peace and work with their unique blueprint, life experiences, and inner work.”
