Amy Kuscsik, R-YFT, YF-A

Amy resides just outside of Perrysville, OH with her husband and three children. Yoga has been in and our of her life for nearly 20 years. In 2010, the Lord had other plans for her and brought yoga to the forefront of Amy’s life and that is when she began to embrace it as a form of personal worship. When she found YogaFaith, Amy knew this ministry was a divine match to her hearts longing to be an ambassador for Christ to people in need of healing. In 2017, she completed her teacher training with YogaFaith (R-YFT) and is also a certified restorative yoga and leads YogaFaith Adaptive Teacher Trainings. These faithful steps are leading her to others to find wholeness and oneness with Christ.

Since 2012 she has taught primarily yoga in communities that are enveloped in the Mohican State Park in Loudonville, Ohio. Her practice has evolved into one that focuses on healing the body and spirit though body work, primarily though a gently flow and restorative practice, and soon trauma informed yoga to compliment talk therapy. These modalities have forever shaped her testimony and personal ministry to help others get on a path of natural healing the way Christ intended.

Amy is also the 2019/2020 YogaFaith Ambassador of the Year! Amy embodies Christ’s vision for this ministry and taking Jesus out into the world so others can find restoration in mind, body, spirit, and soul. We are elated for you to meet this amazing soul! Train with her at this beautiful Ohio 200 hour Miracle Immersion or in June alongside Jody Thome for TSYF and Dance & Embodiment.

Rosy McCann, R-YFT, YF-A

Rosy is a Holistic Health Coach, Nutrition Educator, and Founding President of Empowering Women Thru Motion, a not-for-profit organization for women.  She became a YogaFaith instructor in 2017 and is also a YF Ambassador.

As a former event planner, Rosy’s passion is to bring women together in engaging retreats to learn first hand how to create balance in mind, body and soul.  The core tenets for her retreats are by unplugging and reconnecting with Jesus, eating a clean, healthy diet, and practicing meditation, prayer and yoga.  Her goal is to provide women the tools they need to begin their journey back to or optimize their whole body health and wellness.

I am honored to be a YogaFaith Ambassador and assist in bringing women closer to the Creator through yoga and education.

And we are also honored that God has brought such a gift in Rosy to us! We hope you get the chance to meet her or join one of her beautiful retreats!

Liz Glover Wilson, R-YFMT 500

Owner of the beautiful Stone Wave Yoga which has two locations in New York, Liz truly desires community, religious or not, for those who sometimes struggle with ancient yogic philosophies and how they relate to their own spiritual journey, to find a way to benefit from a yoga practice. As a dedicated Christian, I have found that my prayer and praise is supported and expanded by my practice; as I fully embody mind, body and spirit. My hope is to help others explore ways in which they can integrate their own spiritual journey with the healing and sustaining qualities of the yogic practice. Learn more about my advanced training with YogaFaith, find out more here.

If you are joining us in Ohio, you will be immensely blessed by the “Liz Experience” of Jesus and yoga! Michelle Thielen
