Maggie’s Yoga Wall Journey: ”I have been practicing yoga since my early twenties. A few years back, I sprained my wrist. The injury took over a year to heal, and as a result I was no longer able to practice yoga in the way that I had before. I couldn't take a power yoga class or even an aerial yoga class without being in pain. Then I discovered the yoga wall, and my life changed. I couldn't stay in a downward facing dog on my yoga mat, but I could hold down dog for long periods of time by using the yoga wall. Through my wall yoga practice, I found that I could not only find better alignment in my body, but I could also strengthen my wrist without causing further injury. The yoga wall can help you to experience yoga in an entirely new light. -
Maggie began teaching Wall Yoga in 2017
Her first Class offering for Our Studio was in this passion, teaching her Students on the Wall
The Yoga Wall, at it’s core, is an alignment based Yoga practice. Maggie furthered her education about alignment and functionality in her second 200 hour Teacher Training, and immediately translated this wisdom into her classes.
Maggie Mowery is a certified Alignment Yoga teacher and a certified Hatha Yoga teacher holding two 200 hour Yoga Certifications. Maggie has been teaching yoga since 2017, and has been practicing yoga for over 25 years. “Alignment Yoga has literally changed my life. I now have a much deeper understanding of how the human body works and of how I can align my own values with the life that I wish to lead." When she is not on her yoga mat, Maggie loves to paint, sculpt in clay, be in nature and spend time with her loved ones.
This class is for the Yoga Practitioner to deepen their level of knowledge. Instructors who wish to teach using Wall Yoga must attend both Sessions and will need to discuss and have clearance through West End Yoga Studio leadership prior to offering to Students. This Yoga Wall Training is the first step for the Instructor.
