Judi Bar has studied movement and spirituality her whole life. She was a professional dancer and choreographer, and has been teaching over 30 years. Her most profound teaching experience has come from her own life. Crippled with a degenerative spinal disease, and given the choice of surgery or a wheelchair, she instead turned to her years of yoga training. In conjunction with her physicians, she used Yoga, Reiki and Intuition to heal herself. She carries this life-changing empowering philosophy into her teachings.
Compassionate, spiritual, fluid, and credible describe Judi and her teaching. She helps her students to live mindfully and to blend what they learn on the mat into their lives. Her specialty is chronic illness and pain, and turning these challenges into opportunities for emotional well-being and spiritual growth. Judi has developed a style of yoga, “therapeutic yoga”, first to help heal herself and then to help her students.
Judi assists Jan Hauenstein, founder of TRY4Life, in training yoga teachers at both the beginning and advanced levels including certification in yoga therapy and therapeutic yoga. She teaches anatomy, asana, teaching methodology, intuition and philosophy. Many teachers at HeartLight Center for Living Well have been personally trained by Judi.
Judi has a wide range of experience working with physical, emotional, mental and spiritual challenges that include muscular skeletal problems, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, leukemia, AIDS, cancer, heart disease, arthritis, Parkinson’s, migraines, depression, MS, osteoporosis and many others. Judi collaborates with physicians, chiropractors, massage therapists, counselors and physical therapists on treatment plans.
Judi is currently the Lead Yoga Therapist at The Cleveland Clinic’s Lifestyle 180 Program, a disease reversal program, under Dr. Michael Roizen. She is writing a book on yoga therapy based on her therapeutic work.
