Vicky Hilleges spent 18 years working as an engineering consultant and 10 more years selling perennials before deciding to open Pippi’s Healing Garden in September. To some, the jump from engineering to gardening to teaching yoga may not make complete sense, but Hilleges says that after a while, the major physical and mental benefits she experienced from the yoga became so apparent that she felt she had to share her practice with others.
