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 student and practitioner for over 20 years, she has had a lifelong love of movement. Creative expression through movement 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 first yoga teaching certification through Yogaworks and Natasha Rizpoulos and studied for several years 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, Patricia Walden), Fay also received certifications in Therapeutic Yoga at the White Lotus Foundation and Yoga as Therapy with Doug Keller. For the past three years, she has been studying and training in ParaYoga, a tantric lineage, taught by Rod Stryker.
Fay’s teaching is informed by her personal yoga practice of asana, pranayama and meditation, by anatomical alignment principles, and the rhythmic flow of the breath. She 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 who is co-owner of Dancing Crow Yoga.
