Such a wonderful beginner class tonight. Sandi was patient and so helpful! I really enjoyed the class
Gwen, also known as Dr. K, spent 39 years in the Polk County School system as she taught physical education, biology and mathematics, and coached girls’ basketball, and track, In addition, she taught as an adjunct at the University of South Florida, Florida Southern College and St. Leo University, and served as a school principal at both the elementary and middle school level. After retirement from the Polk schools, she served All Saints Academy for 4 years, and is now working with New Beginnings High School.
Her yoga journey began in an effort to manage the stress of public-school administration and to tame a type “A” personality. Once she recognized that yoga was the missing component to her daily being, she decided to pursue and complete the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program with Frankie Hart and went on an completed the 500 hour program.
From her past work with At Risk Children and at a drug rehab center for adolescent boys, Gwen has learned that the common factor among these children is the absence of healthy personal connections which is consistent with unhappy individuals of all ages. Yoga is a choice to develop these healthy connections with self and others and she invites you to visit her New to Yoga class on Wednesday evenings.
