Instructor Bio

Vickie Fitzgerald E-RYT
Yoga Instructor

I have been practicing yoga here in the Hudson Valley for 11 years. My yoga-training certification was completed at Ashtanga of New Paltz, NY in 2008. I have taught at Gold’s Gym in Newburgh, NY and other yoga studios throughout the area. Recently, I started studying the ancient practice of Qigong for the past 18 months having completed several workshops and home study programs.

Throughout my tenure as an instructor I have been proactive in furthering my education and knowledge of Yoga and Qigong by attending many workshops and retreats including:

  • Rodney and Colleen Saidman Yee
  • The Dharma Mittra
  • Dr. Yang Yang of Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital for Evidenced Based Qigong
  • Ken Cohen Qigong training program

For the last year I have been feeling an intense desire to open my own studio here in the Hudson Valley. I have held private Qigong workshops on healing at Gold’s Gym and the response from the participants made me realize that this was the next step for me as an instructor. The thought of opening a studio in my home occurred to me, but I soon realized we did not have a space that would accommodate a class. Then an opportunity to open a studio above my chiropractor became available and I knew that this was the right venue for this endeavor.

I am so excited to share my knowledge and experiences with new students. I love blending the two practices of yoga and Qigong together in order to bring about a deeper more rewarding and holistic practice.
