Margy SmarigaWelcome! I’m Margy Smariga, CYT, E-RYT 500, founder of Frederick Therapeutic Yoga. I am a yoga therapist and experienced yoga teacher trained in the Viniyoga tradition. My passion is empowering individuals of all ages and abilities to use the time-honored strategies of yoga for health and healing. I specialize in adapting the practices of yoga to the unique conditions, needs, and interests of each individual. Serving clients in Frederick, Maryland, and nearby communities, I offer private yoga therapy sessions, group yoga classes, and therapeutic workshops. I work with individuals with a wide range of symptoms and conditions (such as chronic pain, structural imbalances, cancer, respiratory problems, hypertension, autoimmune disorders, and chronic stress) who want to improve their physical and mental well-being through yoga. My clients and students tell me that, as a result of our time together, they experience greater ease and vitality in their body, a more peaceful mind, and a fuller, more joyful life.
