Mary Singler

The beauty that Nia brings out in individual students inspires Mary to teach this lovely form of movement. She sees a hand bent with age offer a heart felt gesture; she see an athletic expression of energetic movement – both movements are gifts. Mary has been fascinated with encouraging health both professionally and personally. Her master’s degree is in health promotion with a focus in cardiorespiratory fitness. Marcy is a certified exercise physiologist through the American College of Sports Medicine and is certified to teach (and currently also teach) yoga, strength training, and indoor cycling. In her opinion, Nia is one of the best ways to sustainably condition the body.
