I’m Audrey, a twenty-something wife, cat-mom, yoga-lover, yooper, and Jesus follower. In 2020, I trained with Yahweh Yoga to receive my YTT-200 certification. I also have a Certificate of General Bible Knowledge from the Association Free Lutheran Bible School (now the Free Lutheran Bible College) and a Bachelor’s in Business Administration from Liberty University.
My wonderful little family includes my servant-heared husband Micah and our two precious cats Sweeney Todd & Arwen. In addition to my yoga-teacher-training, I do administrative and marketing work at a local chiropractic office — a job I LOVE because I get to work with two power-house, healing women and connect with people each day.
My mission is to ENCOURAGE believers, SHARE the Gospel, & PROMOTE FULL-BEING HEALTH (body, spirit, & soul) through yoga, meditation, connection, & loyal love. May we see God’s HESED HEART & cultivate the same HESED love in our hearts with each day and each practice.
If you’d care to know more, here is my yoga story:
I started my faith-journey with Christ as a child, but I started my yoga-journey much later during college. Not having an exercise that I wanted to do regularly led me to search for something sustainable and enjoyable, as I slowly lost the strength I had acquired in my youth. Soon enough I found yoga and started a home practice that I enjoyed. Soon enough, however, I found judgement in the Christian-church-culture that denounced any and all yoga with little attempt to understand this wonderful tool.
I spent months seeking wisdom as to whether or not yoga was consistent with God’s Word and helpful to not only my physical life, but my spiritual life as well. As I studied the practice of yoga (that is NOT specifically linked to a relgion, but merely a METHOD to be used with any worldview) and the Scriptures, I saw how yoga could actually COMPLEMENT Biblical faith through mindfulness, prayer, and meditation.
Soon enough, I saw tangible results of my yoga practice physically, mentally, emotionally, & spiritually. Within 2 years of beginning my yoga practice, I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder, which had contributed to prolonged health problems and almost-constant fatigue. During this diagnosis and heightened anxiety, I saw yoga slow my speeding thoughts (mental change), give me a time dedicated to prayer (spiriual), bring me peace through meditation on God’s Word (emotional), release my tensed muscles, strengthen my body, & bring my nervous system out of my “fight or flight” (all physical).
This study and experience gave me both head (intellectual) and heart (experiencial) knowledge that yoga is beneficial for my Christian walk and my full-being (body, soul & spirit) health. Now I want to share that with others!
