Podcast #18-18 Bend the Bridge- Erin Grace



Erin Grace (in her own words):
“I am a 200 hour registered yoga instructor and have been practicing yoga for 16 years.  I received my teacher training through Yoga Yoga in Austin, TX in 2007. Since then I have taught and practiced in Austin, Northern Virginia, and Pittsburgh.  I have a specialization in prenatal yoga, and love to teach a variety of styles here in Bridgeville, where I opened Bend the Bridge Yoga in July of 2016. Outside of being immersed in yoga (and loving every bit of it), I enjoy spending time with my husband, daughters and 2 dogs.  Yoga has played a significant role in guiding me through balancing self, family and work.  I am grateful to share that with others and teach what I love.”

Podcast #14-18 Outdoor Immersion- Jim Skal



Jim Skal (in his own words): Basically grew up playing outside.  Moved to New Hampshire in 1985 where I made a decision to follow Jesus and ran up and down mountains for the time I was there.  Eventually moved back to Butler, met my wife at North Way Christian Community, raised four kids together as I built a successful mortgage career.

2010 was a year of the developing vision of Outdoor Immersion and serving veterans, people in recovery and at-risk youth in outdoor adventure, recreation and fitness. The work has grown to the point where I ended my mortgage career and started full time operations January 2018 as 501c3 non-profit organization.
