A day of Active Reflection with Yoga and Music,
with Maya and Mary At North Woods Yoga Studio
This workshop will be rescheduled. Please check back for new time!
Be fully present in a day of slowing down, listening deeply and connecting to your strong positive inner resources and inner ways of knowing with Mary Reilly and Maya Story.
Join Mary Reilly with the practice of Iyengar Yoga and connect with your sense of presence and inner clarity as you practice yoga asanas (poses) with attention and awareness. Beginners to yoga are welcome, and those with experience will be given the appropriate level of practice.
Maya Story will guide participants in the use of Music and Imagery to connect to your positive (and sometimes hidden) inner resources through focused listening and creative processing through art, journaling and other creative modalities. Having musical skills or artistic skills is not necessary.

Saturday Classes with Marley!
This summer Marley Speiser, Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher from New York and Burlington will offer Saturday classes on June 30th, July 15th and August 5th. Class descriptions will follow shortly. These offerings will be either a one hour introduction to Iyengar Yoga or an in depth 90 minute class offered on Saturday morning on these dates. A fine opportunity to study!
Why should you practice Yoga?
"To kindle the divine fire within yourself. Everyone has a dormant spark of divinity in themselves which has to be fanned into flame.”
Teaching since 1982, Mary has been devoted to yoga and to the Iyengar tradition for over three decades. Mary has studied at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial institute in Pune India many times, most recently in February of this year. Mary credits this type of immersion study with enabling her to access the depth and clarity of yoga, and for helping her to guide her students to uncover it as well. Mary is certified at the senior I level and also serves the national Iyengar community as the current Certification Chair. Mary has been offering Iyengar yoga retreats in northern Michigan for 18 years.
