WHY YOGA?
I fell in love with yoga at a time where I was falling in love with holistic medicine. My pathway in life as a Massage Thera­pist and Acupuncturist is complemented deeply by my yoga practice. Yoga is vital to my life in every area. I have found that over the years, when times are rocky or delightful, I can always turn to my mat and create a sacred place to connect with the Divine.

WHY YOGA?
I watched and admired a friend practice yoga. It appeared to be not only physical, but also spiritual which really appealed to me. I thought about trying it for sev­eral months, and luckily I found Yoga On High. I begged my way into a full Dynam­ic Hatha for Beginners class with Marcia and have been hooked ever since. Read More…

WHY YOGA?
I absolutely require physical activity for my mental health, and over the years, I have tried just about everything, includ­ing every piece of exercise equipment ever conceived (yes, I had a Thigh Mas­ter). However, yoga is the only movement form that allows me to be totally present, a state that has been difficult for me to achieve in any other way. Yoga has also shown me how to have a compassionate relationship with my body, something that eluded me for much of my life. I call yoga my “moving meditation,” and when I practice, I am having an ongoing conver­sation with my body, asking and listening in mindfulness and giving my body what it needs on any given day. This conver­sation has been critically important over the last decade as I have spent much of it healing from injuries and surgeries. Read More…

This is the second in a series of features on YOHI Teacher Training Institute graduates and students. Stay tuned each week to learn more about how Teacher Training (TT) has helped these yogis learn, grow and blossom in our community and elsewhere!

“My favorite thing about being a yoga teacher is sharing my passion for yoga,” said Jennifer Gleichauf, owner of Nurture Yoga in Dublin, Ohio. “I am a nurturer, which you can guess from the name of my studio!” After her children moved away and she stopped teaching pre-school, Jennifer felt like she’d lost the focus of her nurturing-and that’s when she became serious about her yoga practice. She had dabbled in yoga for 20 years, but during the last 9, she intensified her practice, first finishing her 200 hour certification and then enrolling in YOHI’s 500-hour program.

“I love turning the world upside down and gaining a new perspective,” said Lindsey Wallace, who completed her 200-hour certification in August 2012 from Yoga on High’s Teacher Training Institute. It’s no wonder then, that one of her favorite yoga poses is sirsasana (headstand). Now living in New York City, Lindsey is a student, teacher and research assistant, earning her master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Columbia University Teachers College. With a focus on Spirituality and Mind/Body Interventions, Lindsey continually has a chance to see things from a new perspective, whether it’s in the classroom or on the yoga mat. Read More…
