The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind and the harmony of the soul
create the symphony of life.
Yoga at the Yard Yoga at the Yard is an extension of the Yard’s dedication
to physical exploration, experience and performance. As with the community class dance program, resident dancers and community members come
together to inhale, exhale and move. Alignment, breath and body awareness and community are the guiding principles for all of our teachers.
Classes are held in our open-air studio where practitioners gaze out at trees and flowers as they find their own tree poses and lotuses. Downward
dogs, not dogma. Yoga at the Yard is directed by Mollie Doyle.

Before settling into family life and moving to Martha's Vineyard with her family, Sarah Davis spent 10 years studying and teaching yoga and
vipassana meditation in Asia and Europe. What had started out as an interest in teaching therapeutic yoga while working as a prosthetist, evolved
into teaching various styles of Hatha yoga, to most recently teaching a slow gentle body-awareness practice at 10 and 21 day vipassana meditation
retreats, based on her own experience in yoga and mindfulness meditation. In her classes Sarah shares these practices, seamlessly weaving a gentle
Hatha yoga practice with the Buddhist teachings of Anapansati and Satipatthana - Awareness of Breath and the Establishment of Mindfulness.
Jane Norton’s first yoga experience was on a snowy January day on Martha's Vineyard in 2001. She went back to class the next day and never
looked back. When she encountered Anusara Yoga in 2003 she knew she had found her heart's calling. Having completed her initial 200 hour training
with Deb Neubauer in 2004, Jane began sharing her love for the art and science of yoga. Jane's 500 hours of study with Anusara Yoga founder John
Friend and other senior teachers illuminate her teaching. Her classes are inspiring, challenging, and fun - and no two are ever alike. Jane's studies
of Tantric yoga philosophy with Dr. Douglas Brooks and Dr. William Mahony elevate her classes to a refined experience that simultaneously shifts the
body, heart, and mind. Jane specializes in using Anusara alignment to help people recover from injury and chronic pain conditions. A year round island
resident and founding member of The Yoga Collective, expect to move - and be moved - in Jane's Sunday 9AM class.
