Teaching permeates Channing’s life. Teaching middle school locally for the past 6 years, she became a Registered Yoga Teacher in 2013 and made yoga a full-time focus in 2014. A South Carolina girl, Channing grew up in the state, briefly leaving to attend Middle Tennessee State University where yoga first entered her life. Never considered flexible nor strong, she was amazed at how quickly one can progress through the postures, and relished the non-competitive spirit of yoga. Channing’s passion for yoga became renewed during pregnancy, when breathing techniques and meditation became daily practices.
Channing received her 200-hour certification in Vinyasa Flow from Gotta Yoga out of Charlotte, NC. She is currently registered with Yoga Alliance and enrolled in the 500-hour yoga teacher training through Holy Cow in Charleston, SC. Channing has received special training in Prenatal Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Yin Yoga, Back-bending, Restorative Yoga and Ayurveda. An avid reader and love of words, Channing enjoys blogging about mommy-hood in an honest, open, and sometimes humorous way. When not teaching, practicing yoga or writing, Channing loves to read, paint, and spend time with her husband, daughter, and son.
