Sybil Gouchie, Certified Yoga Teacher Director AM/PM Yoga Source
Sybil is a certified, experienced yoga teacher who has been practicing yoga since 1990 and teaching yoga throughout Central New York since 1996. She has studied a variety of styles with a focus on Kripalu Yoga and practiced with many experienced Kripalu yoga teachers. Her teaching grew out of her desire to share her passion & experience of yoga with others.
"I am committed to sharing my passion and knowledge of yoga with you, encouraging wellness throughout the community, one person at a time."
I lead a full and busy life, working a full time job in the field of environmental science. I also have a husband, two teenage children, a dog, a cat, and my biological family including a 100 year old grandmother. My life experiences have made my interest in yoga and its expressions varied and diverse with special training and experience in prenatal, mom & baby, children's, family and yoga for seniors, restorative yoga, yoga with weights. I have also completed workshops in the SilverSneakers Fitness Program® for seniors and yoga for prevention of low back pain, yoga ball, and body sculpting.
Life has many stresses and is ever changing. Yoga has helped me through life's ups and downs and has given me a chance to know my true self. I was originally drawn to yoga for its ability to clear and calm my mind. My interest gradually turned to the physical conditioning of yoga and how yoga could make me stronger and more fit. I have a decade of experience in the health & fitness field. I hold certifications in group fitness, personal training, pilates, and indoor cycling. As life keeps going on, I have become more interested in the spiritual aspects of yoga, and focusing on the bigger picture of life to help foster a deep connection with self and the good inside and all around us. Yoga is for everyone. Whether you are young or older, fit or need to get fit, a regular yoga practice will improve your health and well being, making you feel good. The saying "Life is good" can also be translated to "Yoga is good."
I would be honored to help you on your yoga journey.
Namaste (the light of consciousness in me honors the light of consciousness in you).
