Vicky teaches a variety of thoughtfully sequenced yoga classes including Aerial Yoga. Her classes are great for beginner to intermediate/advanced students of all ages. Vicky inspires students to find balance in their lives and challenges them both physically and mentally. Beginning her own yoga journey in her 40’s, Vicky is very much aware of how yoga, meditation and healthy living can help the body and the mind age more gracefully.
Yoga became a way of life for Vicky after her 2nd back surgery in 2004. Discovering that the physical therapy exercises prescribed for rehabilitation were yoga postures, she researched yoga and became a regular practitioner. In 2011, she felt a desire for more knowledge of the ancient practice; enrolling in a 200 hour yoga teacher training program, graduating in November 2012. With her RYT-200 Certificate, Vicky started teaching right away and knew she was on the right path. With the encouragement of her family, she opened River Bend Yoga in June of 2014. Desiring to further her knowledge for herself and her students, she pursued her 500 hour teaching certificate, acquiring it in 2016.
Taking care of the body, warding off injuries, and living mindfully is important to Vicky. She teaches this in her classes focusing on alignment and proper breathing techniques, always keeping her students health and well-being in mind.
Outside of Yoga, Vicky enjoys gardening, cooking, touring America via motorcycle with her husband Jim, and spending time with her children and grandchildren seeking adventures and making memories. She is dog lover and avid reader, enjoying time at home curled up with a book and her dogs.
“Living mindfully is the foundation to a happy, healthy, well balanced life.”
