Marti Dowman, ERYT 200, RYT 500

Yoga Instructor

I started my practice of Yoga after exploring Buddhist meditation. During my first yoga class at a local gym, I immediately felt the “meditation in motion” that helped calm the mind and facilitate the mind/body connection I was seeking. From there, I started to explore various studios hoping to find the right energy, class mix and spirituality beyond an Asana “workout.” I knew I was home after my first class at Joyful Yoga! Wanting to take my practice to a deeper level, I completed Teacher Training at the 200 hour level with Jacqeline Chiodo in December 2010. In an effort to better serve all students, I completed my training at the 500 hour level in September 2013 with Inner Peace Yoga Therapy in Asheville, NC.

I now teach Mellow Flow, Gentle, Basics and Restorative Yoga as well as offering private instruction. As Yoga Manager, I am always eager to hear from you, our treasured clients, as to how we can best continue to serve the Yoga Community in a heartfelt manner!
