Mary Morgan Bryan (Oxford, MS)
Mary Morgan was convinced yoga was not for her. Between her work schedule and raising a family, her work-out time was limited, and she preferred her high-impact kick-boxing and circuit training classes. Ironically, it was a kick-boxing instructor who encouraged her to try a yoga class. Surprised at how physically challenging yoga was, the competitor in her went back for more. With every practice, she experienced unexpected feelings of strength and ease while gaining a greater appreciation for both her body and her life. Through yoga, she learned to quiet her mind, let go of fear and expectations, live in the moment, and listen instinctively to her body. Mary Morgan began craving time on her mat; time to breathe deeper, to move freer, and to simply be present.
She completed her 200-hr RYT certification through emPower School of Yoga and is currently working toward her Baptiste Yoga certification. Mary Morgan is a mentor for an Africa Yoga Project yoga teacher and also serves on the board for Small World Yoga, a non-profit dedicated to making yoga accessible to more people in the Nashville community.
Mary Morgan recently opened the Yoga Space in Oxford, MS, where it is her intention to create a safe and nurturing space to build community and empower others to live an inspired life.
