EnCourage Yoga - All Levels


This class is taught by:

Mary Partridge

I'm from...
 
I'm a homegrown Rockland person. I was born in Nyack Hospital, raised in Tappan and raised my family in Suffern. A sweet part of growing up and living in Rockland has always been Piermont. As a very little girl, my Dad and I fed the ducks in Piermont on Saturday mornings. As a teen, bike trips meant stopping in Piermont, en route to Nyack. Teaching yoga in Piermont feels like where I'm from. It's home.

My education...

I have a Masters in Social Work from Fordham University. I completed my yoga teacher training and my Yoga Therapy Certification at Yoga Mountain.

I love yoga because...

yoga heals the body, mind and spirit. Yoga is for everyone. Yoga is fun, tranquil and sweet. Yoga builds strength and teaches compassion. Yoga answers questions, even the ones we didn't know we needed to ask.

My classes...

I like my classes to be vibrant, uplifting and accessible to all students. I hope that my students feel nurtured, encouraged and are given a safe haven to explore. I try to be sensitive to my student's individual needs and to build a fun and inspiring community.

When I'm not teaching...

I strive to be a student of yoga in all aspects of my life. I am a psychotherapist and yoga therapist. I am a mom, a wife, sister, aunt and friend. I am blessed with a big family, and 2 dogs and a cat. I love to hike, read, listen to music and dance.

My favorite yoga pose...

I don't have a 'favorite pose". Every day is so different. As I practice, my body sense which pose I am calling for physically and emotionally. My practice has evolved from what I favored years ago to who I am today. Tomorrow, too, will be different. I think my favorite "pose" is not in the asana practice but in the yogic journey.

I am inspired by...

As a yoga teacher and yoga therapist I am most inspired by my students and my teachers. I am inspired in my life by my children. Life in itself inspires me. It's pretty amazing!

A blended practice of being encouraged to challenge ourselves, yet honor ourselves, all in one. Advanced variations and challenging asanas (postures) will be offered. But most importantly, you'll be encouraged to practice your practice, in an open, and safe space. All levels welcome.
