Precious McCullough has been practicing yoga for eight years and is a graduate of the 200 hr Uttara Yoga Teacher Training Program. She has a background in Microbiology and Immunology, with an undergraduate degree in Clinical Laboratory Science from Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). Having a career with a strong technical focus, Precious was drawn to yoga and meditation as a way to center and ground her mind, body, and spirit.
Precious’ affinity for Yoga study stems from her desire to connect deeply with others and the world around her. Her practice intensified during her first pregnancy as she realized the importance of deepening the connection with Self to become more present. After suffering from several losses in a short time frame, Precious began on a path of using yoga as a healing modality for grief. Following the “Companioning Model” of grief support Precious believes that grief is a natural and organic part of life and love, and as such healing grief requires compassionate and heart–centered attention. She uses yoga to find wisdom, guidance and healing in the midst of the pain of loss. Precious is certified in Death and Grief Studies through the Center For Loss in Fort Collins, Colorado. She utilizes the techniques and healing properties of yoga to help people experiencing loss manage and cope with the devastation.
In her free time you can catch her hiking, traveling all over the world and spending time with her two amazing little boys who regularly keep her busy.
She continuously aims to reflect the patience, balance and flexibility of the practice in everything she does, while nurturing her passion for the art. Precious strives to show others the benefit of Yoga, Mindfulness and Mediation through her calm, creative style of instruction.
