Meet Mary Veal, Yoga Teacher & Thai Yoga Body Work Practitioner.
Mary discovered yoga six years ago, while searching for a 'good stretch' to improve running times. She is grateful to have stretched the mind and soul along with the body.
An avid hiker, runner and backpacker, she feels alive in the outdoors. Enjoys camping, kayaking and admits her all time favorite place is inside a tent. She is active in an Outdoors Ministry which is designed to encourage and make available opportunities for people to spend time outdoors together, with the intention of allowing nature to affect them in positive ways and create healthy living habits.
Mary truly believes in the concept of keeping moving and it's benefits. Movement is essential to obtain and maintain health. She completed her 200 hour certification at Johns Creek Yoga under the guidance of Sheila McVay and is currently working on her 300 Hour certification.
Mary hopes to inspire joy and healthy living through movement.
We asked each of our teachers a few questions to get to know them better ....
What/who inspires you? Nature. Whether its hiking, running or walking around the neighborhood I always come home bursting with ambition and ideas for the next grand adventure. The adventure could lead me far from home, a daring turn of my journey or a recipe. The fresh air and open space gives my mind and heart the opportunity to receive.
Favorite and least favorite posture, and why? Favorite posture - legs up the wall at home with hubby next to me, a time to go deep in ourselves, yet being close at the same time Least favorite posture - any arm balances
If you could visit anywhere in the world you’ve never been, where would you go? New Zealand
What superpower do you wish you possessed? The ability to bring joy. Joy is different for everyone, but everyone should have the pleasure.
What times/days do you teach at Grey Owl? / What are your offerings at Grey Owl?
Tuesday 6:00 All Levels and 7:15 Yin/ Restorative.
