Fay Sutherland, E-RYT
Fay founded Dancing Crow Yoga as a way to pursue her calling in yoga, after an exciting 20-year career in public television at WGBH/Boston. A yoga practitioner for over 17 years, she has had a lifelong love of movement. This is a passion she first experienced during dance classes at age four and continued to enjoy throughout her life in modern, African and contact improvisation dance, martial arts, and instructing aerobics. She received her teaching certification through Yogaworks and Natasha Rizpoulos and regularly studies with senior Boston-area teacher, Barbara Benagh. In addition to attending workshops with many of yoga’s senior teachers and bright lights (Judith Lasater, Doug Keller, Richard Freeman, Marc St Pierre), Fay also completed a weeklong certification in Therapeutic Yoga as taught by Cheri Clampett and Arturo Peal at the White Lotus Foundation in California. She is currently inspired by and is pursuing a certification in ParaYoga with Rod Stryker. Her teaching is informed by her personal yoga practice of asana, pranayama and meditation, by the precision of the Iyengar style, by anatomical alignment principles and the rhythmic flow of the breath. Fay provides insightful, dynamic yoga instruction to increase strength, flexibility and balance, while also promoting self-awareness, internal stillness and freedom. Fay lives in Hingham (on Crow Point!) with her husband, with whom she co-owns Dancing Crow Yoga.
