Mary Pat Murphy blends her abundant energy and joy for life to create classes that help open body, mind, and spirit. “It’s important to learn to let go, to breathe, to laugh, and to really honor one’s self. Yoga, for me, is a celebration of life. I love the practice and am so grateful that I can share the practice with students and other yoga teachers. Life is a joyful journey even at the hardest moments. Learning to find faith, courage, joy, and celebration everyday is really the practice.”
