Peggy Smith, RYT 200
Peggy began her yoga journey back in 2007 as a path to peace and stress management after a devastating cancer diagnosis. Through her mentor, Kim Cresse, Peggy quickly learned that yoga and meditation supported a road back to optimum health and wellness. Sharing this knowledge has created a passion for teaching yoga to Beginners, allowing for a safe, nurturing pathway towards a healthy body using the flowing power of the breath and movement to create a connection to a vital abundant life.
Certifications and Trainings include 200 RYT with Gina Minyard, of Yoga Collective, Ruth Ann Martin of Springs Yoga, and Betsey Downing, and studying at the Kripalu Institute and in workshops/trainings with Matthew Sanford, David Reglin, Leslie Kaminoff, Gary Kraftsow and Sadie Nardini.
