Mary Jo Germanos

MJ, a former dancer and competitive college athlete, turned her focus to yoga as a way to restore and heal her physical body. Not only did she find an improvement in the overall quality of her physical structure, she also enjoyed the depth in mental focus & emotional release yoga had provided. She decided to deepen her practice by becoming a certified yoga teacher (RYT-200) under the guidance of Natasha Rizopoulos at Down Under Yoga in Brookline, MA, where she continues to explore and learn from fellow teachers and students alike.

MJ joined Hands to Heart Center in September of 2014 as a volunteer teacher to middle school kids with special needs in Dorchester, MA. Inspired by the qualities yoga brings in and out of her students, she continues to incorporate the benefits of guided meditation, Reiki (I & II certified), and most importantly – fun & laughter – with each and every practice.

If not on her mat, MJ is in the kitchen experimenting with Ayurveda cooking, playing golf, spending time with friends, or studying for the MCATs.
