Barb Matheny, owner and teacher
When I retired from a wonderful teaching career with Findlay City Schools (2nd-8th grade) I wanted to pursue
something new. Having practiced yoga for many years, getting my
certification to teach it became my new direction and path in life. Teaching is my calling.
I have my E 200 hour RYT (Experienced Registered
Yoga Teacher) certification through YogaFit, having finished all of the course
requirements: Levels 1-5, anatomy, and specialized training in seniors, children, prenatal/postpartum and using props (blocks, bolsters, straps,
etc.). I am attending more training towards my 500 hour certification and have taken Restorative, Yoga Therapy I & II, Anatomy I & II, Yoga for the Heart, Yoga Back, and Mommy and Baby.
I am certified with the nationally recognized YogaEd program and am qualified to
teach a PE yoga curriculum to children K-8th. In addition, I also do in-services for
teachers in YogaEd's "Tools for Teachers" program and implemented this program into four Findlay City Schools through two Hancock County Community Foundation grants.
