The chiropractor helped but, after trying out her first yoga class ever, she left feeling completely renewed. This new practice of yoga helped her to see her own potential of overall mind-body health .Her interest and excitement to learn more about yoga and how to practice brought her to complete a 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training in Summer of 2018 at Vibe Yoga in Bloomington Indiana. Neci has begun to work on her 500 YTT and has completed a few trainings including: Waking up-Astrology and Kundalini yoga, The Art of Hands-On Assisting, Restorative Yoga, Rad Roller Self Myofascial Release and a Meditation Retreat. She has intention to continue her yoga trainings and is going to back to school for a health and science degree.In each of Neci's classes she intends to create a space for participants to feel safe moving, breathing and exploring their practice. Having found more peace of mind and happiness through her own yoga practice she intends to share that secret power with her students.

The practice offered a much gentler healing approach that helped alleviate not only her knee issues, but helped with her anxiety levels as well. Yoga has helped her tune into her physical and emotional needs, leading her to embark on a journey of self discovery and self care. Quinn completed her 200 hour YTT with Ekah Yoga in July 2018. She is a certified Reki Master and Young Living essential oil representative, both of which she incorporates into her practice and teaching.

Sarah (Skip)
Sarah began practicing yoga regularly in 2011. She enjoys the challenge of a Vinyasa class with the balance of asanas, physical postures, and pranayamas, breathwork. Yoga has helped her keep her stress and anxiety in check. As her passion of yoga grew with each class she confesses she fostered a slight addiction to yoga. Her love for travel brought her to complete her 200 Hour Teacher Training Certification from Yogalinda in Barcelona, Spain with certification in Hot Vinyasa Yoga in 2016. Since then she had a wrist injury unrelated to yoga and underwent two surgeries. Yoga has given her the tools to rebuild strength and increase mobility mindfully with patience and awareness. She brings an understanding that every body is different and yoga can be adapted to fit specific needs. She enjoys the creativity of Vinyasa flow and all the possibilities for personal expression. More recently, she began practicing and instructing Acro Yoga and loves the new challenge this practice presents. While yoga is a very introspective practice, Acro Yoga requires clear interpersonal communication. She hopes to cultivate a continual awareness of mind and body with each breath as it guides you throughout your own practice so you can live mindfully on and off the mat.
