Ginny Svigals

I was certified as an RYT 200 through Yoga Alliance under the teachings of Kelly-Jean Moore at Mission Yoga in Charleston, SC, in December 2014. I took my first yoga class 7 years ago for the strength and flexibility that it provided. Quickly, the practice became an outlet for my emotional mind as an intensive care nurse. It held space for me to feel vulnerable, unsure, and weak. All the things that I was too afraid to show in my regular life. Yoga taught me how to connect with my body, to trust my intuition and to release the tensions both physically and mentally. As yoga continued to make me strong it was also quietly nourishing my self-esteem and speaking to my soul. Yoga has connected me to my body in a way that is both strong and soft. Its knowledge teaches that we already posses the tools necessary to make the changes we need in our lives. It has taught me to live in the present and the powerful practice of mindfulness. Yoga had a quiet way of making a home in my soul and it is my passion to share its beauty with my students.
