MaryEllen Powers, RYT 200
As a competitive athlete in both high school and college, MaryEllen found yoga in 2006 as a way to stretch and cross train. After singing up for a half-marathon and realizing her body wasn't made for running, she decided to train with a 30-day yoga challenge. It was 2015 when MaryEllen finished her half-marathon, with a sub 2 hour time, having never run more than 6 miles during training (or in her life). That is how she realized the immense benefits, physically and mentally, that yoga had to offer through consistent practice.
MaryEllen completed her teacher training at CorePower in Minneapolis, MN the following year. After completion, she knew that sharing the practice and tradition of yoga was a part of her calling, she just didn't know when, how, or where until finding Peak Yoga. MaryEllen is very excited to share her knowledge with her students and guide them through the movement and breath of yoga, so that one day her students may share her same passion and love of yoga.
