Hello! I am Mary Beth

I am a full time ‘Special Needs’ public school teacher by day, working in the Richmond, Virginia area. I am passionate about yoga! I have been practicing Hatha Yoga for 8 years. I received my 200 hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification in 2012 after completing the Himalayan Institute Teacher Training Program at Synergy Yoga Studio. I have completed the 500 hour yoga teacher training program in October of 2013, which took place at the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, Pennsylvania. I have been teaching a weekly class at Synergy since August, 2011. I seek to bring more than just strengthening and stretching in the postures, but I also want to help students begin to manage the energy (prana) that is present within each person’s body. The techniques I use to tap into this energy include breath training, pranayama exercises and meditation. My most significant goal is to help and guide my students on a journey to finding inner peace.
