Dr. Erica Peabody

As a dedicated yogi for almost 25 years, a YTT graduate, healthcare provider and health expert, Dr Peabody brings a refreshing and approachable perspective to the festival.  She has a thriving family chiropractic practice in downtown Fenton for the past 17 years and many of you have seen her in and around the local yoga studios for decades.  She uses yoga on a daily basis inside of patient care “prescribing” yoga postures to support patient health, healing and well-being. 

Class Offerings: Yoga as Prescription – A Yogi-Chiropractor’s view on How Asana Heals
