Studio Spotlights: Mike McGrew

It’s hard to explain the mental state that (yoga) puts me in but if I come in and I have had a stressful day I find it relaxing.  I can use it throughout the week to cope with everyday situations.

Why yoga?
I never gave it a thought until the Recreational Amputee Support Group of Central Ohio invited me to a class that Stacee Hill is teaching.  I got a free pass to Yoga on High, came the next day and have been coming ever since.  Its’ very helpful physically and mentally.  It’s hard to explain the mental state that it puts me in but if I come in and I have had a stressful day I find it relaxing.  I can use it throughout the week to cope with everyday situations.  It’s almost like going to church for me.  I come 2-3 times a week now.

Favorite yoga style?
Hatha

Favorite pose?
Gotta be the warrior pose.

How long practicing?
Since last Dec 2013

Dream yoga retreat?
Never gave it any thought. But not knowing much about this but I would like to try yoga outside—maybe the summer yoga in the Columbus Commons.

Greatest yoga lesson learned?
The health aspects of practicing.  Marcia has explained a lot about the good yoga does for you.

Favorite thing about YOHI?
There’s a lot of good there.  I can’t get over how friendly and trusting everybody is.  From all the classes I have taken so far, how much I have enjoyed them and how beneficial they have been to me.

I enjoy photography, exercising in general-especially bike riding; I like to be outdoors.  I’m retired from the State of Ohio. I’m really glad I was introduced to yoga and I hope to continue the practice for a really long time.
