The instructors are both knowledgeable and skilled at guiding students to both listen to their bodies while testing and expanding their practice. I find such release after each class, and leave feeling stronger, walking taller, and with a lightness of spirit.
I have been practicing yoga since 1999. I started my practice with Heidi Crocker as a winter fitness activity during my lunch breaks when I was a counselor at SKY Community and Technical College then known as Bowling Green Technical School. I wasn’t sure how I felt about it, but after a few classes, I was hooked. I continued on with Beverly Veenker and Debbie Marquette as they expanded yoga opportunities in the Bowling Green area.
I started my teacher training in 2013 with Shanda Packard at Harmony Therapeutic Yoga and completed my 200-hour Yoga Alliance Training in 2014. I believed then and now that yoga is a perfect adjunct for counseling for those who can use yoga as a way to work through times of personal crisis and trauma, as well as a great way to become healthier in mind and body for anyone.
I am currently a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) and will complete my 500-hour yoga training in November 2016.
