Profile of a Yogi: Jennifer Gleichauf

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.

Profile of a Yogi: Lindsey Wallace

This is the first 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!

“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…

Strong, Beautiful, Grateful, Deserving

by Michele Vinbury

We are faced with hundreds of choices a day, from whether to get up when the alarm goes off, to how to respond to the morning news, where to eat for lunch and how many books to read our kids at bedtime.  How we make these choices is one of the keys to living with intention and achieving your aspirations.

In my 20’s I became interested in heath and fitness, and through these pursuits, I learned the basics of goal setting.  To be effective, goals should be written, attainable, measurable and time bound.  I achieved some successes using this method, but it wasn’t until my early 30’s that I was truly inspired to put goal writing and intention setting into my daily routine.  I embraced this as a way of life, from fitness and health goals to parenting and personality aspirations, and was amazed by the results.

By putting some simple practices into place, I realized that I was capable of making things happen, and ultimately, creating the life I wanted to have. Read More…

With My Hands In Prayer

By Stephanie Estice

I took my first swimming class at the age of 20. I was spending a summer at UC Berkeley, taking an intro to genetics class. I had never learned to swim, and I thought it would be an interesting challenge and maybe fun to finally learn. I grew up in a suburb where everyone took swimming lessons. My parents both worked, which at that time was still a relatively new thing, and they weren’t plugged into some of the social expectations of where we lived. So I had no swimming lessons as a child, even though we spent every summer by a lake in northern Michigan. Which is how I found myself as a young adult, in a rooftop pool in Berkeley, California, attempting to learn all these strokes. Read More…

Here’s to a radiant, healthy summer!

By Michele Vinbury

I love teaching and taking yoga classes in heated rooms. Add to that my love of running, biking and playing in the sun, and I can spend hours a day losing fluid – which can be problematic.  Staying hydrated, as many of you know, is key to optimal performance, healthy skin, proper brain functioning and even injury prevention.  Still, sometimes getting enough water throughout the day can be a challenge, no matter how much I know I need it!  Here are two favorite recipes that help me stick to my hydration goals and keep me feeling great.

Offering Prenatal Support through Yoga

by Jennifer Gebhart

Teaching Prenatal Yoga allows you the opportunity to empower women during this special and sacred time of their life. Pregnancy can create a flurry of emotions due to the physical changes it involves as well as fears about the baby’s health, laboring and mothering. As a yoga teacher you can offer a sacred space for the pregnant woman to slow down, tune into her body, and build a community of support. You can teach her ways to find comfort and ease in her changing body, while celebrating the life she is creating. Often women turn to yoga for the first time while pregnant because other forms of physical activity become too challenging and they hear how Prenatal Yoga offers them a time to bond with the baby and tools for labor. To avoid feeling isolated pregnant women can connect with one another is Prenatal Yoga classes, too. I’ve had many Prenatal Yoga Class students stay connected with one another, even after having their second children. What a gift this is in our fast paced, detached society. Read More…
