Yogi of the Month

Yogi of the Month: Paul

Yogi of the Month

Nickname: Harvey (long story how I got the name, but it is from the Jimmy Stewart movie…)

Occupation: English Teacher, Thomas Worthington High School

Fun fact about you: I am colorblind, more like an almost complete absence of color vision. Not sure if it is fun, but it sure makes picking out my clothes interesting.

Who is your favorite instructor and why? That is like asking me to pick my favorite cheesecake! I love Michele for her energy, her enthusiasm, and for reminding me that it’s just yoga. I love Lara’s humor and irreverence, as well as her helpful adjustments (and for having the best playlists), and I love Daniel and Jake’s class (at Grow Yoga) for helping me “be a happy little tree.” Read More…

Yogi of the Month: Deborah

Meet this month’s Yogi of the Month, Deborah Forsblom.  She is a long time student of yoga on high and currently in the 300 Hour Teacher Training program. Here’s her #whyyoga:

Why Yoga On High? We moved to Bexley in the late 1970’s and joined what was then the Bexley Food Coop. Marcia was one of the founders, and we met her there. Then we took her yoga class at Bexley Rec. When I was ready to take studio classes, I never considered anywhere else. I am so happy that I can go to great, safe classes and get training and attend world-class workshops 10 minutes from my house. Marcia, Martha, and Linda created something wonderful for Columbus, and Jasmine and Michele are helping to build it and keep it going. Yoga on High has become my home away from home.

Yogi of the Month: Paula

Paula truly takes advantage of so much of what YOHI has to offer.  We regularly see her in hot flow and sekoia classes, in hatha and ashtanga classes and in restorative and pranayama classes too.  She can do it all!  We are inspired by her dedication to showing up on the mat, by her adventurous navigation of our schedule and by her ability to see the “yoga” in all of these varied practices and paths -- that is true flexibility 🙂  We are thrilled to recognize Paula as our Manduka Yogi of the Month.   Read More…

Yogi of the Month: Kelle

Meet this month’s Manudka Yogi of the Month! Kelle Giese started Morning Mysore about 5 months ago after her son urged her to try it. Mysore was her first experience with yoga and she was immediately drawn to its simple approach to Ashtanga yoga. Kelle started yoga later in life, so the process of adding poses one at a time made sense--especially since she was just coming off of a foot injury when she first came to class. One of Kelle’s biggest successes is that even though she was recovering from an injury she still made it a point to come to class every day. Since she started Morning Mysore, Kelle has not missed a day and her presence in the room inspired everyone to work through their “stuff”. Congrats to our newest Yogi of the Month! Read More…
