Mary Rittenhouse-Howard found yoga for the first time almost 17 years ago. It was not until recently that yoga stopped being something she did and became part of who she is. Mary truly believes that yoga is for everyone despite age, body type or physical limitations and through constant practice and dedication the movements, breath, and poses can find anyone.
As a vegan of 22 years, Mary believes in practicing compassion on the mat and off. A wanderer by heart, she also believes that yoga is a useful tool to help still our sometimes restless minds, bodies and hearts. Her class style is typically playful, inviting, mindful and soothing. Her goal is to share her love for yoga with as many people as possible.
Mary completed her 200hr RYT in 2015 and started her 300hr certification program in early 2016. Her goal is to offer pranyama and meditation to her students; as well as asana, to create a well balanced mental and physical practice. Mary teaches a variety of classes including Hatha, Vinyasa and Restorative.
