Jacque Shockley

Hot yoga is the healing modality I use as my diagnostic tool to check-in and take and honest look at what is going on inside of me physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It is a process of self-discovery using traditional therapeutic hatha yoga postures.

 

When I walk into class, the constant is ALWAYS the yoga and the variable is ALWAYS the connection between my body and my mind. The more I practice the more I appreciate the intelligent design of the series and the brilliance of the perfectly placed savasanas between each posture. Savasana holds the light and still ness where we are all one. Savasana births each inspired asana and together with the breath grows the posture into the leading edge of the present moment, within our physical time/space reality. It is absolutely fascinating!

Marcia

Marcia Biasi-Folkertsma

Marcia started practicing Bikram yoga 15 years ago in Paradise Valley, Az. She had wanted to go to BIkram yoga teacher training shortly after she began practicing.

She says, “It was one of the most challenging, life changing experiences of my life!”

 

She put her training to good use after tearing her ACL & MCL in a downhill skiing accident in 2009. It was a long recovery period of doing only what her body would allow, one day at a time, for many months. She opted out of surgery and it has healed 99%. “It’s so exciting to have watched my students persevere and heal their ailments through their yoga practice, that’s why we’re here to heal one another”.

 

Marcia has been recently diagnosed with osteoarthritis in her hips and an auto-immune disease called Hashimoto’s. After pushing her body to the limits with body building, running, and hiking her new motto is “Less is definitely more!”

 

Overall, yoga has been her go to for relieving stress, depression, aches, pains, weight management, healing of mind, body and soul. “Let’s show up, have some fun and support one another through our practices”.
