Jodi started practicing yoga three years ago. Her practice has been a huge part of her health journey after her diagnosis of MS three years ago. So, when the pandemic hit, she decided to learn more. I am a lifelong learner, and thought this was a great time to participate in the online Yoga Renew program. I earned my 200 RYT certification, in September and have been teaching locally since then.”
A Zanesville native, Jodi believes that “everybody can do yoga.” She wants her students to know that adapting to what you need is important. “Muscle spasms are a real thing, and sometimes it’s not easy to even bend over. Your body might be really tight and sore, but just do what you can. You may think it’s not enough but you will see incremental improvements over time. Use the props and aids. I encourage everyone to have fun. You have to learn to laugh at yourself at times. And be easy with yourself. Showing up as you are is the key.”
Jodi begins teaching at The Yoga Booth on April 13. Visit https:// theyogaboothzanesville.com/schedule/ for the class schedule.
