Willamarie Moore

Her yoga training and ongoing professional development includes: Iyengar Yoga Teacher Training with Patricia Walden and Peentz Dubble in Cambridge, MA; periodic trips to Pune, India to study with the Iyengars; and continuing education with senior Iyengar Yoga teachers across the U.S. on a regular basis. She is also a dedicated student of yoga philosophy, Sanskrit, and Vedic chanting.

Willamarie’s involvement with the wider Iyengar Yoga community includes: serving on the the Scholarship Committee of IYANE (Iyengar Association of New England); assisting Patricia Walden’s weekly Level 2/3 class (2013 – 2015); assisting Peentz Dubble’s Teacher Training Program (2013-15); and writing for Yoga Samachar, the biannual publication of IYNAUS (Iyengar Yoga National Association of the US).

Students over the years have expressed appreciation for the way that Willamarie structures her asana classes around an anatomical theme paired with an appropriate philosophical theme. Each class focuses on specific actions; the poses are linked together in a methodical progression during which Willamarie asks students to bring their attention to particular areas of the body and to observe with curiosity and equanimity as they strive to stretch both body and mind. Her sequences are designed to be accessible to all — safe for beginners and an invitation for more experienced students to dive ever deeper in their poses.

Willamarie teaches regular classes, occasional special workshops, and private sessions tailored to individual students’ needs and goals.
