Mary Van Dyke
Mary wants to share the healing, transformative power of yoga with others. She was introduced to yoga when her physician recommended it as a way to help recover from cancer. Long since cancer free, she continued to deepen her yoga practice through movement and breath, graduating from the 200-hour Advanced Studies program at Downtown Yoga in June 2011. In 2019, she completed a certification in Trauma-Informed Yoga with Legacy Motion Yoga, and is an RYT 200 with Yoga Alliance.
Mary is passionate about alignment-based yoga because its emphasis on good form is essential to avoiding injury and increasing strength and flexibility. She strives to create an open, positive space where students are free to explore the mind, body and spirit, in the most compassionate way possible.
