Judy Farniok 500 RYT Excelsior
I have been an active practitioner of YIN, Hatha and restorative yoga having revived my practice from many years ago. My teachers have included Paul Grilley, Doug Kellar, Camella Nair and Judith Lasater. I focus my teaching on the overall benefits a Yin practice can bring to a student’s life focusing on the therapeutic aspects of yoga while exploring the connections between mind, body and spirit. My goal is to bring hope and inspiration to those who are searching for a yoga practice that will serve them. Recovering from bilateral knee replacements, my practice and teaching facilitated the process of my bodies ability to rebuild and heal. My students are generally amazed at my recovery, returning to active teaching just 10 weeks after surgery! My 500 Hour certification is through Spirit of the Lake focused on the therapeutic aspects of yoga. I recently completed the certification process to teach Aqua Yoga and regularly teach in warm water therapy pools.
