Jenn McCullough, Karuna House Yogi
"Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."-Howard Thurman
Jenn McCullough is the owner of Integration Yoga with Jenn, and is working in collaboration with the Karuna House to provide yoga services to both individuals and groups in a private setting within the Karuna House. Jenn brings 22 years of experience and expertise in yoga, breath work, meditation, and energy balancing practices.
With a background as an elementary special education teacher, Jenn found that her yoga practice helped reduce her physical and mental tension not only in class, but also in her classroom and daily life. Her love for teaching and yoga converged and she began teaching yoga full-time.
Jenn received her yoga teacher certification at Bhumi's Yoga and Wellness Center (www.bhumiyoga.com), recognized by the Yoga Alliance. Drawing on a dynamic integration of the formal and organic teachings of her many "teachers," Jenn continues to evolve in her yoga practice and teaching. She is inspired by the symbiotic relationship between what is learned "on" and "off" the mat. She strives to create an experience for her students, which allows them to make their yoga practice relevant in their daily lives.
Foundational to Jenn's practice is the belief that yoga is for "every body". She teaches Hatha Yoga to a wide range of practitioners and her teaching style includes principles and methodology from various Hatha Yoga traditions including: Ashtanga, Krupalu, Iyengar and Bikram. She gears her classes toward her students' needs and interests and welcomes people of all ages, background, and abilities. Jenn also offers specialty focused workshops on body image, Chakras, chanting, partner yoga, inversions, and laughter yoga and has played an integral part in bringing yoga and meditation into area schools.

Julie Daugherty, Certified Forest Bathing Therapist
"When we open up our senses, we begin to connect to the natural world”; and when we connect to the natural world, we connect to ourselves” -Qi Li
Jewels Daugherty is a Certified Forest Therapy Guide with the Association of Nature & Forest Therapy and has been guiding Forest Bathing walks since July 2016. www.NatureandForestTherapy.org
Jewels has found ‘nature’ to be one of the common denominators in people’s journey. The natural world is where we go in times of celebration and grief. It’s a place to find peace and wisdom. We all know intuitively that nature provides healing, refuge, peace and clarity. As a Guide, Jewels’ helps to facilitate this reconnection to yourself & your inner wisdom.
Forest bathing (or shinrin-yoku in Japanese) is as simple as it sounds and is centered on being in nature, around trees, and very present. This is a simple, refreshing, and easy practice that allows you to reboot, clear the air, and feel.
In today’s fast-paced world, many of us search for ways to relax, rejuvenate, and tune-in. Forest Bathing is a simple, inexpensive, and proven method to relax and soothe your Spirit, Mind & Body.
Forest bathing has been proven to strengthen the immune system, lower blood pressure, and decrease stress, anxiety, and depression. The practice has also been shown to increase the activity of natural killer cells, which are associated with cancer prevention. Studies also show that forest bathing can increase concentration and memory, help you lose weight, and improve cardiovascular and metabolic health. Incredibly, these benefits can even last a whole month after a visit to the forest!
It may seem strange to merely meander a forest in order to reap its health benefits, but as our global society becomes more urbanized, the need to reconnect to nature and absorb its serenity, biodiversity, healing potential, and vitality increases.
So how does one forest bath?
Qing Li, author of Forest Bathing: How Trees Can Help You Find Health and Happiness explains “It is simply being in nature, connecting with it through our senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch. Shinrin-yoku is like a bridge. By opening our senses, it bridges the gap between us and the natural world. Allowing yourself to connect with your intuition; letting your body lead you; and move aimlessly, trusting your internal guide. Saviour every sight, sound, and smell; touch the soil, dip your feet into a stream, and let the forest permeate your senses”
