About The Founder

 Joysoul Doula

 My name is Rosa, I am from and currently live in Schenectady NY. I am a yoga instructor, prenatal yoga instructor, certified birth & postpartum doula, a breastfeeding peer counselor, and a breathwork/meditation practitioner. I work with moms, families, teens, adults, and babies. I found my way on to this path through my life’s unfolding around intergenerational healing and belonging.

I am the founder and Master of Ceremony at Miracle on Craig Street, where I support leadership, manage our capital renovation project and facilitate community building in my hometown. I am an earth lover and urban farmer. I am a regular ole’ extraordinary being.

I typically have a calm demeanor and a gentle tone. I’m naturally inquisitive, I like to ask questions. I’m pretty intuitive, good at reading energy and noticing when there may be something deeper. I’m a lover, I’m naturally inclined to be concerned about people’s well-being. I enjoy emotional intimacy with friends and loved ones. I do my best to be non-judgmental and be celebratory instead. I am small but mighty. I see myself as a piece of the whole, a part of a larger village, and I believe wholeheartedly in collective healing and utilizing community resources and the village. 

My life joys include movement, growing food, writing, reading, organizing, solitude, decorating, singing, dancing, cooking, meditation, breathing, laughing and being silly, listening and sharing with others and spending time with my family.

Abundant Love & Blessings,

Rosa E Rivera
