Popular Greeneville yoga instructor Vicky Evans has set up practice in a new yoga studio, Yoga With Vicky, on the corner of 35 West Allens Bridge Road and Asheville Highway.
Evans is a certified yoga instructor, with eight-and-a-half years of experience in the Greeneville and Tri-Cities area, after completing a 200-hour course with the Asheville Yoga Center in 2005.
She is the former instructor at the Greene County YMCA, InnerSea Yoga of Johnson City, and Greeneville Fit Club, before opening her studio earlier this fall.
"We have seen a strong increase with the practice of yoga among both female and male students who recognize its benefits for healing, stress management, and general health improvement purposes," Evans said.
She discovered yoga, she said, as an alternative method of healing following a serious automobile accident in the late 1990s.
Evans pursued her certification soon after and finished course work in the mid-2000s.
"I began my study of this healthy method of exercise as a means to restore strength and mobility during recovery of my (automobile) accident," Evans recalled.
"I use yoga every day, and I would encourage anyone to include yoga in their lifestyle to relieve stress. improve muscular strength and mobility."
Group and private classes, for beginning to advanced stages at all levels of yoga, are available by appointment at her new studio.
