Your mind is a garden. Your thoughts are the seeds.
You can grow flowers or you can grow weeds.
Spring is in the air! The days are getting longer, and the birds are chirping with a sweet reminder of the beauty and warmth that is coming. Such a lovely time, when the trees and plants begin to bud, coming out of the winter hibernation and blooming into something new. This is a great reminder that we too can shed the old in order to bloom into something new and refreshed. Take this time to clear the clutter, release what is no longer serving you, create a healthy habit, or find time to do what you love. Each day we are given the chance to begin again!

Mantra: I grow through what I go through

Bet you didn't know:
I grew up near Chicago and am the third of five girls in my family. Mark is my witty husband and Kyle is our brilliant son. I was a serious runner before I found yoga. Moving is essential to me but running caused too much wear and tear on my knees. I started practicing yoga instead. I also enjoy hiking, cycling, gardening and walking our labrador Beatrix Potter. In retirement I have taken up quilting. I volunteer as a court appointed special advocate for abused and neglected kids for Butler County Parachute. At my church I am involved in many volunteer capacities. Retirement has been an exciting opportunity for me to explore activities I feel passionate about. This phase in my life has allowed me abundant time to share my gifts with others and to continue to grow personally. What a wonderful journey, and blessed way to live!


Bev has been practicing yoga for 21 years and teaching it for 9. “Homegrown” describes her since she received her 200 hour and 300 hour teacher training at GT. 
Each month we introduce and celebrate our amazing instructors.

My thoughts on yoga:
Yoga has improved the quality of my life both in my physical and emotional health. To me yoga is my love, my hobby, my mission, an important part of my community, and my go-to when I need release. I embrace the metaphor of yoga being like sea glass. You keep at it and little by little the rough edges slough away. Sea glass used to be something else, perhaps a shard of a broken bottle. Eventually it is transformed and renewed into something more natural and beautiful. In yoga as in life, there is so much to learn and be shaped by. There is no end, only the journey. 

 I taught elementary school for 33 years. Children are a joy and kept me young at heart. Still I wanted to explore working with adults. Two years before I planned to retire, I decided to turn my practice into a more in-depth study and enrolled in yoga teacher training. Yoga was to become my pathway to a happy and fulfilled retirement. Yoga reminds us of what is important…breath, kindness, humility, honoring your body, staying hopeful, adapting to change, being present, and love. Yoga will be part of my life as long as I breath! 

Favorite Postures:
The more you practice and experience an asana, the better you understand it. You appreciate its benefits and it starts to feel more like an old friend. This happened to me with Cobra (Bhujangasana) pose. It didn’t hurt but never felt yummy either. I kept practicing Cobra and now it is one of my preferred postures. Lesson learned… don’t be afraid of snakes!

Tree pose (Vrikshasana) is my favorite asana. I giggle to myself when I am finding my “inner-Groot”. I feel uplifted, stable and graceful standing in Tree. And I feel humbled when having a bad balance day. Tree pose is about finding balance. Yoga has helped me find balance in my life.  
Wellness is a Journey
How are you doing on your wellness journey? If you had a way to monitor inflammation in your body that you are trying to reduce with your yoga practices and other health regimens, would you be open to learning more? We know that inflammation is the precursor to disease. One way to detect inflammation in the body is through Thermography. Thermography is a non-invasive, radiation-free screening that uses a special state-of-the art infrared camera that allows us to see heat/temperature differences throughout the body. These heat patterns often correlate to inflammation.
  • Full Body Thermal Imaging 
  • Breast Health Screening
  • Thyroid Screening
  • Lymphatic Congestion
  • Abdominal Inflammation
  • Vascular System Analysis
  • Neuromuscular Disorders
  • Muscular Disorders
  • Vascular Screening
  • Other Pathologies
It can help detect lymphatic congestion, inflammation, muscle disorders, and so much more.  Just like you are taking pro-active steps with your yoga practices, thermography can help identify additional areas of focus to aid in working towards your overall wellness. This screening provides you with valuable insights into your body allowing you to see where you have inflammation and congestion. Then you can bring your results to your Wellness Team so that they can help you address these problematic areas. Watching your inflammation going down over time is very exciting and rewarding! 
For many, your thermogram may show how you can make simple lifestyle changes that can have a profound impact on how you’re feeling.  We are here to help you on your wellness journey! 

Contact either Jacky Groenewegen, 513-382-3132 or Robin Hanson-Gobell, 513-443-5161 if you have questions about Thermography or to schedule your thermography scan.

Usage Tips:
  • Diffuse Cedarwood to create a relaxing environment. 
  • During your facial routine, add one to two drops to your facial toner or moisturizer to promote clear, healthy-looking skin.
  • Place a drop on a cotton ball and place in closet to keep moths at bay.
  • Before exercising, massage one to two drops into your chest to maintain vitality throughout your workout.
  • When a child wakes up scared in the night, apply to the bottom of feet to return to a peaceful feeling.
Cedarwood encourages tranquility and can help you relax at the end of the day. Popularly used in the perfume and skincare products, Cedarwood soothes the skin and calms the mind. It’s also a natural bug repellent.

The warm, woody, and somewhat balsamic aroma of Cedarwood essential oil is relaxing and calming. 

Cedarwood has clarifying properties when used topically. Incorporate it into your facial skin care routine to help keep the skin looking healthy and clear. Use a drop on skin blemishes to improve their appearance. 

One of the traditional uses for Cedarwood is to repel bugs. Place a drop of Cedarwood on a cotton ball and keep it in your closet or storage boxes to repel moths. You can also add Cedarwood oil to mulch or topsoil to discourage insects.
