Mary E. Tricario, RYT
Mary is a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance trained in Hatha Yoga. She focuses on linking movement with the breath and letting the body speak to the mind. Her lighthearted style allows the practitioner to let go of everything around them and just have fun and concentrate on themselves even if it’s only for an hour or so.
Mary also works with the connection between yoga and weight loss and helping people throughout their healthy journeys. As a real life example of successful weight loss, she has maintained a weight loss of over 50 pounds for over 5 years and has taken that knowledge to become a personal weight loss coach. Mary’s story has been featured nationally in Weight Watchers Magazine and Weight Watchers Online and locally in The Home News & Tribune & Courier newspapers and New Jersey Namaste News where she is also a contributing writer. Her "small changes" have also been featured in Whole Living: Daily Challenges blog. Mary is also very proud to be a Survivor Ambassador for the American Heart Association working on the Garden State Go Red for Women Luncheon. While she is neither a registered dietician nor a nutritionist, she has become a real life expert in being successful and wants to support people in their goal to live healthy lifestyles.
Mary has also been working on additional projects including the effects of yoga on veterans and victims of the 9/11 attacks who suffer from PTSD and other ailments associated with traumatic events. She has also been exploring a practice in Anti-Gravity Yoga which has helped her learn to let go in new ways she never thought possible.
A card carrying geek, her favorite music ranges from Moby to Gnarls Barkley to Juliette Lewis (with The Licks and the New Romantiques) to The Prodigy to Nine Inch Nails. Mary’s favorite comic book is Gen 13 (the old series… not the new one) and has been to San Diego Comic Con twice and is looking forward to attending again.
