Teacher Feature: Mary Dillon

What year did you attend training? Why did you go?

Fall 2000. I started my practice while in Graduate School getting my Master’s in Education. By the time I earned my degree, I was so passionate about the benefits of the practice, the decision to shift into teaching yoga was very easy.

What do you do for fun?

I just moved into my dream apt. on Riverside with unobstructed views of the Hudson, Palisades and GW Bridge….so lately I spend a lot of time marveling out my windows. I am also an avid (window) gardener, and I study Tai Chi.

Do you have a favorite inspirational quote or saying?

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

What are you currently reading or listening to?

I have been re-reading the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali mostly because I am finding that students are, now more than ever, interested in the wisdom contained within.

You’re a performer/writer… can you tell us what you’ve worked on lately or when your next gig is?

In the last year I co-starred with Dov Tiefenbach in a terrific little play directed by Michael Beckett called, Talkback”. I also had the pleasure of headlining a benefit concert promoting literacy in San Miguel de Allende Mexico. When I returned to NYC in February, a little play I wrote, direct and star in was chosen as a Finalist in the Manhattan Rep Spring Play Festival, so that has been fun. Presently, I am editing some other work, which I hope to perform this Summer…stay tuned.
