Vickie Russell Bell was born and raised in Ohio, and is a journalist by education. She teaches yoga because she loves to. Her intention is to help her students increase their level of daily awareness through their body, breath and experience. She is a graduate of the Piedmont Yoga Studio Advanced Training Program and is a certified “Relax and Renew Trainer” through Judith Lasater’s accredited program.
Vickie does a bit of short story writing, belts out an occasional jazz or country tune, and walks with her Rhodesian Ridgeback in the redwoods. She reads a lot, and adores her friends and Oakland. She is also part of the core faculty for the Deep Yoga Program at Piedmont Yoga Studio.
