John-staff

John It’s been just about one year since I graduated from Nourishing Storm’s 200 Hour Teacher Training program. I remember feeling so apprehensive and ill-prepared as my first meditation class approached. Of course this was nothing more than the butterflies of...

Alison

AlisonNourishing Storm has taken me on a journey that allows me to feel better both physically and emotionally. At age 13, I herniated a disk in my back and did everything possible to avoid surgery, but unfortunately it became necessary. Seven years later the scenario...

Mark

MarkMy yoga journey started a little over a year ago though it should have started back in 2000 when I herniated two disks in my lower back. Back then (no pun intended), I was encouraged to try yoga but I refused. “I will never do yoga.” I avoided surgery on my back...

Connie

ConnieI started with Nourishing Storm about one year ago seeking peace for my mind, body and soul. What I have discovered is that beyond peace, the practice has given me strength, while creating a deeper connection through the scriptures of my creator. It was amazing...

Dawn

DawnI believe we are where are meant to be and that everything happens for a reason. When Kristin came to my work to hold a yoga session and I was very excited to join. I was considering joining a yoga studio but didn’t know which one to choose so this opportunity...

Tina

TinaAnd it’s all in the name. Nourishing Storm Studio and Cafe. I started on my journey for inner peace about 2 years ago. August of 2015 I found the Storm. It’s been true love ever since. I had no true Yoga practice besides a night class at the local school. Now it’s...

Andrea

AndreaI began my love affair with movement back with Olivia Newton John’s “Physical”. I was so young I thought she meant working out! I decided to lose weight prior to starting high school. Although the weight would be lost and more would be gained over many years, I...

Stayce

StayceA self-proclaimed gym rat, I have spent most of my mornings over the past 11 years teaching spin class, swimming, running and weight training. I weighed myself every morning, took measures of myself, counted every calorie. I ran the Tough Mudder, the Spartan and...

Angela

AngelaWhen I was ten months old, I contracted viral encephalitis, swelling of the brain, from a mosquito bite. The illness left me with a significantly weaker right side and dystonia in my right side. The best way I can describe dystonia is uncontrollable muscle...

Christine

ChristineI started my yoga journey December 2015.   August of that year my son had left for college and being a single Mom my life was quickly changing around me.  My life was always on the go as my son played football and we were always busy with games, practice and...

Pattie

PattieAs a wife, mother, RN and CCM, I am much more comfortable taking care of others rather than myself. Firmly in middle age and an increasingly sedentary lifestyle, I was well aware of the gamble that I was taking with my future health. Then, a wonderful friend...

Aracelis

AracelisA little over a year ago I walked into Nourishing Storm during a very sad time in  my life.  I was 33 years old, newly diagnosed with breast cancer and recovering from a bilateral mastectomy. My hope was that yoga might help with my recovery, especially the...

John D.

John D.I don’t know how, when or why I lost trust.  Maybe it was all of those politicians issuing promises they’d never keep.  Perhaps it was all of those executives from Philly sports teams assuring us that a world championship was right around the corner.  Who...

Dana

DanaI am a Soldier and have been in the military for 29 years. I was brought to yoga to increase my flexibility from years of running and not properly stretching. I started doing some on-line and video yoga workouts in 2014. After a knee surgery in 2015 I knew I...

Tammy

TammyA hard core gymnast from 3rd to 11th grade, daily training, tough workouts, dance classes and stressful competitions were the norm. Competitive fencing replaced gymnastics and then martial arts eventually became my focus for more than a decade after that. Lured...

Sue

SueWhat I like most about yoga is that it is a journey.  There is no stress in practicing if you just remember that every day is a journey, and every class is an opportunity – to be present, to grow, to challenge yourself, and to take time to take care of yourself....

Gail

GailThe first time I tried yoga, I didn’t like it. Not even a little! I dropped out of the class after a few sessions, thinking I was better off running or doing something different that burns more calories. I had NO idea how WRONG I was until years later. Over time I...

Alice

AliceI came to yoga about 2 years ago here at Nourishing Storm. I had just a little exposure to yoga before I came here. I started yoga mainly to help with my flexibility and hopefully get some peace of mind. From my first Saturday class with Megan I felt welcome by...
