Hi! I'm Barb Miller! Welcome to my Wellness webpage.
I am a recent transplant to the Pacific Northwest, having moved here in June of 2021 to be close to my only grandchild. Originally, born and raised in Indiana, after spending 7 years in Milwaukee, WI and the last 25 years in Orlando, FL, Washinton has been a BIG change! I am married and the mother of 2 grown sons.
Exercise, nutrition and wellness have always been a priority in my life, but I had only dabbled in yoga along the way. However, in 2016, my life changed in a dramatic way. My older son, who had struggled with addiction, was the DUI driver in a fatal crash that killed a young woman. Complete devastation followed. I turned to ALL things yoga as therapy and a path to healing. Yoga changed my life and I soon developed a deep desire to share the many benefits of yoga with others.
I earned my 200 hour yoga teacher certification (under Shannon Kidwell / Sweetwater Yoga / Orlando, FL). I also earned space-holder certification in Yoga of 12 Step Recovery or Y12SR (under Nikki Myers). Teaching yoga has given me the opportunity to help and guide others on their own healing paths as we all navigate the complexities of life.
I would love the opportunity to guide you!! I offer clear, concise guidance and I believe you will find my classes to be accessible for the beginner and beneficial for even the most seasoned yogi. My style of yoga is mainly Hatha. As a senior citizen myself, I understand the aging body. I make it my goal to guide all of my students of all ages through a safe, alignment based, breath focused and fun yoga practice that will make you feel better overall...Mind, Body and Spirit.
Alway a student, I am currently in a continuing education mentorship under Dr. Ariele Foster of The Yoga Anatomy Academy. This is an anatomy based mentorship and relates to the functional movement of yoga asana. I will complete my Yoga Anatomy Academy Mentorship Certification August 2022.
When not on my yoga mat, you can find me enjoying the great outdoors, power walking, cooking, exploring new music, watching crime TV, being an attentive plant mama and Super Nana!
