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.

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. A Certified Anusara yoga teacher with ten years of teaching experience, Jane's
classes are inspiring, challenging, and fun - and no two are ever alike. With over 500 hours of training with top Anusara yoga teachers, she weaves her knowledge of
alignment and asana with her love of yoga mythology and Tantric philosophy. Her classes are a refined experience designed to move the body, heart, and mind. A year round
island resident and member of The Yoga Collective, Jane is one of the founders of the teacher-led Anusara School of Hatha Yoga. Join her every Sunday at 9:00 for an
uplifting and transformative yoga class.
is a graduate of the North Carolina School of the Arts. Following a period of choreographing and dancing professionally in New York City and spending summers dancing at The Yard,
she observed Martha's Vineyard had superior beaches and walking trails and decided to relocate. An avid lover of movement and body work, Daryl became trained in Therapeutic and
Deep Tissue Massage in 2004 and became a certified Pilates instructor in 2007. In 2010 Daryl took her first GYROKINESIS® class and discovered a new love and a new way to move.
She received her certification in the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® and GYROKINESIS® under Authorized Master Trainers Billy Macagnone, Erika Hassan, Debra Rose and Lisa Marie
Goodwin-Rice. For Daryl, GYROTONIC® has become a form of healing and injury prevention and simply a fun practice. Daryl is happy to return to The Yard to work with fellow dancers
and all other lovers of movement.
