Margo Ruark


Known for her enthusiasm and interactive teaching style, Margo has been a human potential educator since 2001.

Margo has a wide and varied liberal arts education, including three Master's degrees [one in esthetics, one in dance, and an MBA], ministerial ordination, both her yoga dance teacher certification and 200-hour yoga teacher certification, and most recently a PhD in nonprofit management.

She brings to her classes the rich experiences of extensive travels and studies in the US and Europe, as well as her  training as a professional modern dancer and choreographer. Her classes focus on authentic self-expression through cultivating the mind, meditation, and motion.  She creates a safe space for people to unfold, explore and play.  It is in these experiences that blessings, inspiration, joy and healing find their way in. In addition, she is a published author and scholar.

Margo is the President and Executive Director of The Peace Center.

 Jerry R. Mitchell, President, Jerry R. Mitchell and Associates, Naperville, IL writes on LinkedIn:

“I have known Margo for many years. We first met when she presented her company’s’ business plan to an organization that I was president of. She presented herself in a very professional and poised manner. She was able to explain her business plan in a very articulate way and could answer all the constructive criticisms to the panel’s satisfaction. We have remained in contact over the years and I am always impressed by her ability to move into new areas with determination and passion. I have never ever saw her fail at anything she put her mind to.”
