For some, the idea of getting on the ground and grunting, stretching and twisting into a pretzel just for the sake of relaxation sounds more like a chore than a source of getting your "chi" flowing. But for Amelia Maness-Gilliland, owner of Trilogy Wellness Yoga & Fitness Studio in downtown Anniston, it’s a welcome way of life.
She first became acquainted with yoga in the 1990s while earning a master’s degree in health and physical education from Georgia College and State University. "I was trained initially to use it to enhance athletics. I would work with baseball players or the baseball team, just helping them become better athletes using yoga," she said.
