Meditation and Yoga Instructor…Mark Hunsicker
What does it mean to be a Yoga Teacher? This is the question I asked myself when I first seriously considered attending a Yoga Teacher training. What I discovered was the opportunity to participate in a process of learning, where both the student and the teacher engage one another and discover what is possible. This excites me! What does this mean to you? You will attend a Yoga or Meditation class that is full of encouragement and will offer a practice designed to enhance every aspect of your life.
My experience with Yoga and Meditation began 6 years ago in Atlanta. It was preceded by numerous other activities such as distance running, competitive golf, and plenty of long days challenging my body and mind in different arenas. Those valuable years of practice and competition provided a strong foundation and firm understanding of what it means to place specific demands on the body, while leading to positive results. So, why Yoga? Simple: Yoga and Meditation offer more benefit and balance to the rest of my life than any other activities I have participated in. They just fit!
In 2006, I completed an 840-hour training in Massage Therapy at the ASHA School of Massage in Atlanta, GA. The program offered a strong foundation in anatomy, physiology, and nutrition. I enjoyed the experience, but felt the urging to take it a step further and attend a Yoga Teacher Training.
During the Spring of 2010, I attended The White Lotus Foundation’s intensive 16-day Yoga and Meditation Teacher Training, located in Santa Barbara, CA. White Lotus teaches a non-dogmatic approach to Hatha Yoga. They provide the fundamentals for a safe and effective practice, offering a lifetime of enjoyment and healthy living. This training was a jumping off point for a Yoga/Meditation teaching career.
The possibility of feeling lighter, happier, and healthier is available to You. Come participate in a Hatha Yoga, Meditation, Yoga Nidra, or maybe Partner Yoga class and see what we can discover…
much love and joy… Mark
