Marie Percy has been practicing yoga since 2007. She fell in love with yoga when she discovered that it could help her manage her chronic low back pain and spondylolisthesis (permanent spinal fracture) after a long career as a high level competitive gymnast. She loves that yoga helps her eliminate pain, reduce stress, and connect to a deeper sense of self love and compassion.
Marie has a diverse movement background that spans multiple movement disciplines including gymnastics, dance, theater, movement analysis, and somatic movement studies. Her yoga classes reflect her deep understanding of the human body and the mind body spirit connection. They are deeply introspective, technically rigorous, and accessible to all ability levels with plenty of options to make the practice your own. Marie completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training at Samadhi under Anne Falkowski. She is a Certified Movement Analyst with the Laban/Bartenieff Institute for Movement Studies in NYC and holds an MFA in Theater/Movement Pedagogy from Virginia Commonwealth University.
