About this pro

Erin and Adam Schifferli founded JoyWheel Yoga & Wellness in 2013 with a vision to create a welcoming space for all to learn and practice yoga, meditation as well as have access to high quality wellness services. 

Erin founded Schifferli Works, LLC in 2008 as a traveling registered dietitian nutritionist who practiced strictly in-home-visits. As the practice grew Erin discovered she wanted to offer people more holistic practices than her formal degree offered her. She had been a long time practitioner of yoga and her heart knew there was more on this path to discover. She trained in yoga, meditation, reiki and energy medicine. With the combination of these living and healing arts she knew she wanted to provide personalized classes and services that would teach people how to unveil their true potential. She believed that all beings are meant to thrive rather than just survive the "shoulds" mentality. This was an exciting time for the whole family as they prepared to move to East Aurora.

Adam also became interested in health and wellness beginning by learning and training in various schools of meditation followed by yoga and energy medicine.  He fell in love with these arts and the way they can allow us to embrace the truth of who we all are. His practices offer a unique combination of stress relief, letting go of the past and re-discovery of ones own true nature and full potential. Adam specializes in assisting people in recovery as well as those who claim they can't meditate. He is passionate about helping people find their own personalized pathway to better health.

With great gratitude Adam & Erin wish to serve the community by collaborating with the other Providers and teachers at JoyWheel to offer a space where all can come to learn, grow and co-create their best health. This community-based yoga and wellness center offers a pathway to wholeness for seekers of true wellness.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I believe that anyone can learn to meditate, practice yoga, or benefit from Reiki. The benefit of working one on one or in small groups is we have the opportunity to explore what will work for you. There are many styles of mediation and yoga, and as we are all unique individuals, practicing a techinque that meets you will lead to success, rather than frustration and the "I can't meditate" mindset.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a 500 hour Registered Yoga Teacher who has studied in three countries and have been practicing and training in Yoga and Meditation for over 15 years. I also an a Reiki Grand Master. 

I've been fortunate enough to have received training in mindfulness medtiation, mantra meditation, japa meditation, Vipassana, and Transcendental meditation.

How did you get started teaching?

My wife and I wanted to bring the practices that have been so meaningful for ourselves and our family to the community at larage.

What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with students of all ages and stages of life, ranging from teens, adults, families, and those dealing with many different challenges.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently had the opportunity to tell fire side stories at my children's school. It waw wonderful to see the excitement in their eyes as we shared stories both old and new.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

There is no single approach that meets everyone. Be upfront and honest about where and how you are, so that we can find the right combination of techinques to bring the benefits of practice into your daily life.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

How do you feel when you wake up everyday?

How do you feel by the time you go to bed?

How much stress is in your life, and what are you doing to let it go?

What do you enjoy doing?
