Mary Vivilecchia

Mary’s knowledge of yoga has been developed for over a decade. She began her Teacher Training program 5 years ago and truly enjoys teaching students and being a part of their yogic journey to self-transformation. Mary’s knowledge of the subtle energy system, Bhagavad Gita and philosophy of yoga weave their way through her entire training program.  Her strong knowledge of class sequencing pair with her understanding of anatomy and physiology provides an excellent foundation for each student. It is her hope that each student will complete their training feeling confident to teach a yoga class, as well as provide assists and modifications at the end of their training.  Coupled with this training Mary also covers the business of teaching Yoga, class planning and Sanskrit.  The Yoga City Teacher Training program provides each student with an opportunity to deepen their practice as well as begin a deeper journey into self-discovery and self-transformation.
