    After taking my RYT200 training from Mary Irby, I would not have wanted to take my RYT300 Yoga Wellness training from anyone else. Mary’s teaching style and depth of knowledge, along with her intuitive abilities when it comes to the anatomy of the human body made this training positively entrancing. It truly has been a life-changing experience for me; one of the more important things I have ever done, and I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to learn from Mary.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5


    If you are looking to have an incredible learning experience in the world of Yoga Therapy, instructor extraordinaire, Mary Irby, is your gal! Her vast knowledge of anatomy and how each muscle affects a person’s movement was astounding! She made sure that we finished the training with an abundance of knowledge and hands on experience so that we would feel confident in working with our own clients. Mary made sure that we had ample opportunities to assess the posture and health conditions of various ‘volunteers’ and then apply yogic principles and a multitude of therapies that we’d learned in order to help these folks heal. Each weekend’s lesson plans were well organized and the schedule adhered to. We covered an amazing amount of material during this 300-hour course. Just as I had felt after attending Mary’s RYT-200 teacher training program, I’ve emerged from her 300-hour yoga therapy training feeling extremely confident in my ability to proficiently and successfully work with any type of client who comes to me with physical pain and/or restrictions…and truly be able to help them! I’m so glad that I discovered White Crow Yoga when seeking out teacher training here in Nashville!
