Malory Graham, Yoga Instructor
Change happens through the body.
My approach to teaching yoga is informed by my 20+ years of teaching aikido and a core belief that personal transformation happens through the body. I like yoga poses that feel good--that open and relax the body through flow and extension. Add some attention to breath with calming the mind and we've shared a restorative hour together.
I started my yoga practice in 2003 with Daniela Schmid in Paris and have primarily studied Ashtanga yoga with Elizabeth McElveen in Seattle, WA. I became a 200-hr certified yoga instructor with Alchemy of Yoga having studied with Silvia Mordini in 2014.
“At the heart of my teaching I am motivated by the transformational nature of
movement arts. To watch a student walk into my studio with hunched shoulders and little body literacy or confidence and then see the change through daily practice over the years transform their presence in the world is awe-inspiring. Knowing that I am a facilitator of that process is to me the worthiest of callings. It is the thing I choose to do with this one wild and precious life.”
