My name is Gracie Simmons, a Baker native and married mother of four. I owe a huge thank you to my sweet partner in life, Kirk, for being my backbone and having the idea to open this studio in February 2018. He’s never stopped believing in me.
My husband and kids are my joy, but also they are a lot of work! 😉 With the craziness of our world and the many stresses of motherhood, I am so thankful for finding these ancient teachings during a time in my life when I needed them most. Yoga has allowed me to connect with deeper parts of myself that I didn’t know how to before and to bring stillness and clarity to my mind, body and soul. I am so grateful to be on this journey with you all and feel very blessed to have the opportunity to open the doors to new possibilities in Crestview! My yoga journey is just beginning but as my teacher Laura says, “If your desire is sincere, you will study for the rest of your life.”
I hope for Grateful Hearts to be known as a safe place of happiness, peace and love where you can come to learn more about yourself and your practice and escape the chaos of everyday life by adding movement and strength to the body and peace and calm to the mind and spirit. I hope to inspire others with my life by sharing my light with everyone, no matter our differences or life experiences. I thank God for this opportunity and for catapulting me on this new journey on which I may never have embarked upon on my own. I honor and acknowledge that He guides my every step on this journey of service to my community.
Looking forward to meeting you all and building our Grateful Hearts Yoga Tribe together in Crestview!
