"And I'll believe in grace and choice." - Mumford and Sons
Welcome! My name is Mary Conroy Almada. I’m a yoga teacher, communications and marketing consultant, freelance writer, coffee drinker, wife, dog mom, bookworm, avid traveler, and Georgia native.
As a yoga teacher, I deeply believe that yoga can and should be for everyone. I honor the responsibility to create a space that will enable my students to feel empowered and deeply connected. I believe that each yoga practice should be a powerful and unique experience of breath, movement, and awareness, and peace that students can take with them off the mat and into their daily lives. I have my 200 hr RYT certification from Sonic Yoga in New York City.
As a consultant, I help elevate individuals and organizations through powerful storytelling and refined strategy. I have extensive experience in communications and strategy and have worked closely with nonprofits, startups, charities, and large and small companies to help them develop their brand, streamline communications channels, and create impactful narratives. I hold a Master's in Education Policy and Management from Harvard and a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism - Public Relations from the University of Georgia. I have more than eight years of experience working in communications and marketing.
As a writer, I share personal insights and stories about yoga, healing, grief, travel, and well-being. Writing is my release and my sometimes casual, sometimes serious companion. In addition to my blog, I publish on several creative outlets, including Elephant Journal, Thought Catalog, and The Mighty. My first book is experiencing a long, slow labor of love. Stay tuned!
