Colleen Markiewicz held certification with the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America in both Group Exercise/Aerobics and Personal Trainer. Feeling it was her time to "step down" for the younger generation, Colleen left teaching. When life set a new path in front of her during her early 50's, she decided to try Yoga. Colleen earned her RYT 200 training at The yoga Center of Columbia in 2014. Colleen's Hatha and alignment based classes infuse her passion of Yoga in each posture, giving gentle cues that highlights the breath and enjoyment of the "now". Being a Sign Language Interpreter, she also incorporates hand "Mudras" or Yoga for the hands.
When not doing Yoga, she enjoys her 3 Labrador Retrievers (1 of each color), hiking, reading, and driving her Jeep.
