Pamela McKnight -Yoga Teacher and Traveling Yogi

 Health and wellness has always been a huge part of Pam’s life. However after the discovery of yoga, she knew she had found something magical. The physical and emotional bliss after each class could not be replicated in any other “exercise” class. Pam decided to explore this “exercise” and deepen her own practice. Along the way fell in love with this ancient practice of yoga.  Yoga has provided a foundation for Pam to approach life in a positive, balanced and healthy way.  Everyone can benefit from the healing powers of yoga. The practice of yoga reminds us that everything we will ever need is already within us. Yoga is medicine.
