veronica grantInstructor: Veronica Grant
Veronica came to her yoga mat after years of teaching fitness classes with increasingly achy joints, muscles, and a stressed mind. Her sequences are strong, yet keeps a light-hearted mood with her students. She is also always seeking creative and engaging ways to make Judaism relevant in her life; Yoga Body Jewish Mind perfectly meshes her love of yoga and Jewish thought. Throughout the course, Veronica will remind her students to use their breath to find strength, grace, and compassion for themselves in their yoga practice - both on and off the mat. Veronica is a RYT-200 with the Yoga Alliance and holds a Group Fitness Instructor certification from the American Council on Exercise. 

peggyYoga Body Jewish Mind Creator: Peggy Price
Peggy Price has been teaching yoga, Pilates, and fitness classes since 2004. She completed her 200 hour Yoga Alliance coursework at Peachtree Yoga Center in Atlanta. Peggy has been passionate about Torah study since age six, and she has studied Tanach, Mishnah, Halacha, Jewish history, etc. throughout her twelve years of Jewish day school, college, and beyond. Yoga Body Jewish Mind was first developed as a series for College of Charleston’s Jewish Studies Department in 2011 in order to explore the physical practice and ethical principles of yoga through the lens of Jewish values and Torah study. Peggy believes the process of chavruta study challenges us to not only have a deeper connection to Judaism, but to ourselves.
