Dr. Marci Mikesell, PhD, is a 500-hour certified Kundalini Yoga instructor who has been teaching weekly classes at Heart Space Yoga in Saint Johnsbury since 2019.
After originally training as a research scientist and a decades-long career in the pharmaceutical industry, she turned to yoga and meditation to recover from burnout and build stress resiliency. She completed Kundalini yoga teacher training at the Guru Ram Das Ashram in Millis, Massachusetts in 2018.
Since then she has continued discovering and sharing the life-transforming effects of breathwork, movement, mantra, and meditation for restoring a sense of peace, strength and wholeness in the midst of a chaotic and challenging world. She also completed gong and sound healing training with Gong Master Don Conreaux in the summer of 2023, and incorporates the power of gong vibration into yoga classes as well as offering more extended gong bath experiences.
