Tammy Long Ferry, B.A., E-RYT, YACEP, has been certified in Raja Yoga since 2006. She is also a certified Advanced Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoko Healer. She has been involved in the fitness industry for over 25 years, initially as an aerobic and fitness instructor in the late 80’s. Her wellness focus shifted to yoga more than 10 years ago in an effort to regain lost mobility and vibrant health.
She is inspired by the relevance of yoga philosophy and Ayurvedic concepts. The power of yoga has taught her how to live a more healthy, happy, and peaceful life. A big part of her personal growth comes as a result of weekly yoga class planning.
During her gentle yoga classes, Tammy teaches both mental and physical body awareness. She leads each movement with the breath. She guides students to let go of the tension they carry to and from the yoga mat. She integrates the teaching of the yoga sutras and encourages students to practice yoga safely and serenely. She teaches practical yoga tips, proper alignment, and pranayama. She teaches “half poses” (poses leading up to the traditional yoga poses).
Tammy uses sound, silence, and singing bowls during each class. She includes meditation time in each class.
