Mari Dickey

Mari is a Power and Flow teacher at YYOGA, as well as a YYOGA teacher trainer.

Expect an alignment based practice that is dynamic and challenging but accessible.

Mari creates a space where students can go deep and tune into the intimate wisdom of the physical body and develop a connection to breath.

A beautiful and poetic writer, here's more about Mari in her own words:

We move, we breathe, we sit, we listen. We cultivate our attention and start to trust in the intimate wisdom of our own physical intelligence. We open ourselves up to the teachings all around and within us and to the wisdom of our own hearts.

I believe that transformation is possible when we challenge ourselves to step outside our comfort zone; when we are open to the unknown and allow ourselves to be vulnerable. I want to be brave enough to always try even if I fail and fall and still have the courage to rise again.

My yoga practice provides a safe space where I can play in the unknown, be open to possibility and where I can connect with what is real- here and now. Yoga challenges me to delve into that deeper part of myself that is true and ever steady.

I offer an alignment based practice that is dynamic and challenging but accessible. I aim to hold space where students can go deep and tune into the intimate wisdom of their physical bodies and develop a deep connection to breath." - Mari

Where do you get your inspiration from?
I am humbled and inspired everyday I get to teach, everyday I get to share space and watch courageous yogis go deep into themselves and realize their own amazing limitless potential.

How do you wish your students to feel after your class?
Alive, grounded, connected and uplifted.

How has yoga impacted your life?
Yoga has helped me discover myself and grow in so many ways. My own personal practice and teaching others has been such a gift- challenging and humbling me in ways I never thought possible and truly opening me up to remembering my un-ending capacity for love and desire for continued growth.

I have learned that I can be strong and also vulnerable.

I have learned that showing up as authentically and as humbly true to myself as possible is the most potent way to remain open and grounded and Real.
I have also learned that watching people support each other and connect as a collective through movement, stillness and breath is a truly powerful thing to witness and to be a part of. I am truly grateful to do what I do.
