As a Cardiac Nurse Practitioner, I was searching for my niche, (and my tribe.) I finally found it with YogaNursing.

It feels wonderful to have an army of other modern nightingales behind me, to finally be spreading the word, love and medical yoga throughout healthcare.

I just ‘knew’ YogaNursing was right for me instantly. I think I felt this way because I asked for guidance in finding my life’s purpose in prayer and meditation and then synchronistically found the Yoga Nurse website”

“Annette is an amazing teacher and I think everything that comes out of her mouth is of value because it is honest and RAW. It was also very helpful to hear the other YN trainees ask questions and hear Annette’s heartfelt answers and explanations.

Amy Decker
RN, Indiana, USA

The most transformative part of the Annette Tersigni experience is knowing that I am not alone and that there are people out there who understand and who get me—and I get them. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate that kind of support.

Also, knowing that it can be done and is being done gives me a lot of confidence that I can do it, too.

Qualified as a CYN in 2014
Michelle Groom
RN, Maternal Child Health, NC, USA

I was feeling frustrated with the state of maternal health. Choosing to become certified started as a whisper and then became a very clear voice.

1. I believe I can do it
2. I am doing it
3. I am changing things in my life to make it happen.

If you’re not sure about getting certified, I say, “Go for it!”

Laura Zimmerman
RN, MSN, Oncology nurse navigator

I love yoga and I love nursing. The combination of the two made perfect sense to me and I was immediately drawn in! I was looking to augment my current job with something to help transform our healthcare system.

I enjoyed every session and got something out of each one. I think the concepts around SAPS and unity with ‘source’ were life changing. I also enjoyed discussions on marketing and website creation.

Qualified as a CYN in 2013
Beth Ireton
RN, Director Integrated Health Delivery, PA, USA

I had a sense/a feeling that this was ‘right’; a pull towards the teacher (Annette), the ah-ha’s as she spoke. I just felt this was just so in tune to much of what I’ve been thinking, I’ve slowly been doing, now I feel a part of something; a movement with like minded individuals (sangha) that will be ever expanding.

I feel this training was the life shift I needed to realize and re-connect with my own power, my purpose; to healing myself.
