Keri Honea, the Chocobo Yogi
Keri Honea has, in all honesty, not been practicing yoga for decades. She was talked into trying out yoga with a friend in 2014. Keri begrudgingly went, strongly believing that yoga was just a bunch of hippie dippie baloney. By her first class, she was HOOKED. A few months in, she wanted to be a teacher. Yoga completely changed her life. As such, she couldn’t keep it all to herself. She had to share yoga with others and hopefully change their lives the way only yoga can.
She was accepted into the very first LISPY (Lifeologie Institute School of Psychotherapeutic Yoga) training class to become a 200-hour registered yoga teacher (RYT). Choosing LISPY opens the door for continuing her education through LISPY to become a fully-fledged Psychotherapeutic Yoga Teacher. Her current plan is to specialize in working with anxiety and depression patients as well as yogis who suffer from chronic pain afflictions.
Even though she’s not a Psychotherapeutic Yoga teacher just yet, she can still use all of the psychotherapeutic tools she learned specifically for yoga. Thanks to LISPY, she’s grown to learn that yoga is not all about the poses and doing as many as possible in 60 minutes. Yoga is a way of life, and not in a hippie dippie baloney sense. It’s about strength. It’s about flexibility. Most importantly, it’s about balance. All three are needed in every aspect of your life, not just what you bring to the mat each day.
Her own studio will open this February right out of her home, offering private sessions, two group classes (to start), and even online class possibilities. Check out the options and book a session today! She hopes to see you on the mat!
