Rita Mary has progressed along a yogic path for over eighteen years of personal devotion, self-study, and intense seeking of wisdom from advanced teachers, including Baron Baptiste, Rod Stryker, and Hala Khouri. Rita intends to guides her students in the most beneficial way for their goals and abilities, whether that be a physically challenging vinyasa sequence, a meditative, restorative class, a spiritually-enlivened mindfulness practice or an educational beginner class. For each class, she creates intelligent sequences, taking care to guide the body in specific, rational ways, so as to build balance and strength, while limiting injury. Rita strives to create a space that empowers individuals to experience their bodies in a nonjudgmental way as they flow through yoga poses. Further, she is certified in “Trauma-Informed Yoga,” yoga for children, and yoga for special needs.
