Meet the Marci’s Downtown Yoga instructors!

Marci Crawford

Ashtanga Vinyasa – RYT 200, ROCKET™ 50, Beginner Yoga

Marci practiced yoga for over 11 years – most of those years, she practiced Hatha (gentle) and vinyasa flow. When she came to It’s Yoga for teacher training, she learned Ashtanga yoga and continues to teach that, along with teaching beginner yoga. Marci completed her RYT 200 hour teacher training in September 2013 at Its Yoga Toledo, and also trained in their 50 hour Rocket™ system in February 2014. She loves to share the love of the practice with others! Marci likes to create a comfortable, encouraging space to learn yoga and she encourages you to have FUN!!! If you are not laughing and having fun you are doing it wrong! LOL!

Julie Van Hove

Julie has a MS in Kinesiology and Health Promotion, and is also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. She began teaching yoga in gyms over 10 years ago, while also teaching several high impact group fitness classes each week. She enjoyed the quiet break, healing nature, and stress relief she received from having a regular Ashtanga practice. To expand on her knowledge and personal practice , Julie completed the 200 hour Ashtanga training through It's Yoga in 2013. She fell in love with the flow of ``The Rocket``, and really appreciated learning the history and traditions of this ancient practice. She uses yoga to help her live a healthy life, both physically and mentally. Her classes are built on modifying the asanas to fit and gently challenge the individual.
