Mary’s Articles on Yoga

My Favorite Sutra

My Favorite Sutra In my first teacher training, we, of course, had to study the Yoga Sutras. I think it was in our first weekend (we came together for long weekends every other month) we were assigned to begin reading this for the next weekend. So I went home, and...

Mary Byerly is the most inspired and passionate Yoga teachers I have ever met and she is genuinely devoted in passing on her knowledge to Yogis. She gave us a strong method as well as tons of useful pieces of advice on how to teach Yoga but more than that she helped us to teach with love and wisdom. Workshops, self-practice, theory, books and videos, Mary provided us with a large panel of resources and a broad vision of Yoga, selecting different approaches for us to discover. Paying particular attention to injuries or simply to physical differences and diversity of abilities within people, Mary is very careful of developing teachings adapted to each person. If you have a strong desire to learn how to teach yoga with inspiration and to dig into an inward journey, this teacher training has been made for you and it will help to discover what you are all about!
