On Becoming a Yoga Teacher… 

“Yoga impacts the body, mind and heart in interesting and surprising ways.  For most of us, there is something about this ancient practice that brings us home to a rich bounty.  It helps us weed the garden and root out obstacles, those deeply held patterns that hold us back from our true potential.  Through practice we may come to the realization that we want to dig deeper, learn more, share and inspire others.”

-Mary Hilliker, RDN, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT, Lead Teacher, 240 Hr Yoga Teacher Training
