Although Vicki's interest in Yoga began years before, her practice became consistent in 2003 when she found herself settled in Alaska. The Anusara inspired teachings and Yin Yoga influence of her first teacher and mentor strongly resonated with Vicki. She completed a 30hr introductory teacher training course in Alaska before heading to Baja, Mexico where she obtained her 200hr certification at the Yandara Yoga Institute. Vicki has now lived and taught Yoga within various locations in Boone since 2008. She has recently graduated from the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Masters program at Appalachian State. She is grateful at this time in her life when all of her interests have come together in a complimentary manner. Her studies at Appalachian included a concentration in Body-Centered Expressive Arts Therapy and she has discovered a passion for Gestalt Therapy which emphasizes "authentic presence." Vicki’s practice and dedication in Vipassana mediation has been the foundation. So far Vicki has found that whether we are sitting in silent meditation, engaged in art making, or stretching our bodies, when we “show up” authentically and give ourselves permission to be exactly who we are, an opening occurs in the body, the mind, and the heart. She honors this practice by holding the space for her students and encouraging them to explore.
