It was not uncommon to walk into the studio and find this powerhouse in a headstand, “clearing her sinuses!” Vic had been leading yogis in the Effingham and Newton areas for 22 years. She lead classes in many different physical locations and her Yoga Kula (family) followed her wherever she landed. She merged her Yoga Kula with our Lotus Room family 2 years ago in 2020, shortly after we had opened our doors. Vic brought positive vibes, new life, and plenty of knowledge to our new studio. We all learned so much from her. We know her spirit will live in our studio and our Yoga Kula as long as we are all together.
The fun facts below are Vic's words.
Forever in our hearts and our studio ~
With love, your Lotus Room Family
