Restorative Yoga


This class is taught by:

Mary Neary

Mary was intrigued with Yoga and meditation from a young age. In 1984 she discovered Ashtanga Yoga and became committed to the practice. Since then she has mainly studied within the Ashtanga lineage.She travelled to Hawaii to practice wih Shri K Pattabhi Jois in 1985 and years later in 2015 travelled to Mysore, India to practice with his grandson Sharath Jois at the home and birthplace of Ashtanga Yoga.

During the years of raising a family Mary found it extremely challenging to continue her Yoga practice as in earlier stages and for several years Yoga became more of an occasional class or workshop rather than a regular dedicated practice. In 2005 she rededicated herself to her Yoga practice. She began to study with Stephanie Quigley in 2006 and more recently with Jodee Dixon from whom she received her 200 hour teaching certificate in 2015. She continues to seek to deepen her practice through study with both local and distant teachers and has had workshops and study with Tim Miller, Nancy Gilgoff, Manju Jois, Dylan Bernstein, Fiona Stang, Troy Lucero and Greg Tebb. For the past 3 years she has returned to India to study with certified teacher David Garrigues and seek deeper understanding of The path of Yoga. She is excited to share her love of Yoga with students and looks forward to continued learning through the process of teaching. Along her yoga path she has also been a registered nurse for many years with a certification in psychiatric nursing and has advanced studies in health and nutrition.

Courtney Sanborn

Courtney was first exposed to meditation in 1995 at the age of 14 and discovered yoga in her early-20's. Over the last 15 years she has maintained a daily yoga asana and meditation practice.

She completed her 200-hour teacher training in France under the guidance of Linda Munro and Gerald Disse at Ashtanga Yoga Paris. In 2015 she spent five months studying under Saraswati Jois, the daughter of K. Pattabhi Jois, in Mysore, India.

She is certified by B.N.S Iyengar to teach pranayama and mudras.

In 2017 and 2018, she studied Ashtanga under the guidance of Ajay Kumar in Mysore, India. She considers Ajay and Jodee Dixion to be her primary asana teachers.

She practices the technique of Vipassana meditation and has completed multiple ten day retreats and was an active member of the Zen Buddhist community during her time in Fairbanks, Alaska.

In addition to yoga and meditation she has studied Past Life Regression Therapy, Transomatic Ayurvedic massage and Yoga Nidra under B. Naga Kumar of Mysore, India. She considers Kumar to be her main spiritual teacher.

From a young age Courtney has been fascinated with Traditional Astrology and has recently intensified her astrological studies under her teacher Alejandro Diaz of Mexico City.

Courtney's passions lie in Meditation, Pranayama, Ashtanga Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Traditional Astrology, and Zen Buddhism. Recently, she has developed a strong interest in Yin Yoga.

For the last two years Courtney has divided her time between Alaska, India and France.

Jodee Dixon

Jodee was initially drawn to yoga in 1998 for the benefits of relieving back pain. The feeling of physical well-being led to an awareness of how yoga can nurture the mind and body. This personal experience fuels Jodee’s wish to share yoga with each student willing to learn.

Jodee has studied with senior teachers Matthew Sweeney and Iain Grysak. In 2013, Jodee completed 7 weeks of study with Iain Grysak in Whitehorse.  Recently Jodee has begun studing with Fiona Stang.  She is a registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance, receiving RYT 200 in 2008 and currently E-RYT 200, with over 3000 hours of teaching experience. Jodee is also the lead Instructor for the Teacher Training program at The Yoga Path.

Through experience with personal injuries, balancing yoga practice with life and overcoming challenges in her own yoga practice, Jodee has developed the ability and compassion to assess and teach yoga in a truly accessible method. Common encouragement from Jodee: “Rather than wanting a good practice or the right circumstances, just begin practicing yoga and the details will work themselves out as you begin to feel the benefits”.

Breath and settle into supportive postures.  This class is accessible to all, brand new to yoga, mobility issues (take note there are stairs to the studio) and any one wanting to relieve stress.  Make this class like an appointment, a well deserved practice to restore and revive.
