About the teacher
Mary Angel Blount, MFA, RYT, comes to yoga from a roundabout route. Before she started training to be a yoga instructor, she taught college English for 23 years. “When I discovered yoga in the 1990s, I was teaching creative writing and composition. I was amazed at yoga’s effect on creativity,” she says. “Yoga lowered my self-criticism, so I could feel freer to create.” She continues: “Yoga is also phenomenal for stress. It speeds up the energy in my body and slows down the energy in my mind. It is the perfect reset! More than that, it’s bliss! My calling is to help others discover how profoundly and how positively yoga can affect us all.” In addition to teaching a variety of hatha/vinyasa yoga classes at Bliss Bliss Bliss such as Gentle Yoga and Bliss Flow, Mary Angel also teaches Chakra Yoga, a 75-minute class that includes chakra assessment & balancing, journaling, chanting, meditation, and asana. “The two forces running through our bodies—the liberation current and the manifestation current—are always fluctuating and thus, in constant need of balancing. Chakra Yoga helps us to balance our energy and dissolve our blocks to love and creative bliss.”

About the teacher
Specialty: Children’s yoga I started doing yoga when I was pregnant. I loved the yoga, the community with the other Moms and the send-off we got right before we delivered. I did Mom/Baby classes and returned to pre-natal yoga when I was pregnant with my second child. Then we moved and after arriving in WV, I found Bliss and started attending classes when I could. I also took my girls to Itsy Bitsy Yoga and they loved it. As my kids got older and needed me less I explored what I wanted to do and since I loved yoga and the girls enjoyed it I looked into kid’s yoga certifications. I found Child Light and was certified in the summer of 2013. That fall, my oldest daughter was in a bicycle accident with facial/mouth injuries. While in the emergency room, we both survived because of the breathing techniques I learned and had already shared with my daughters. The numbing gel and lidocaine did not work and she felt every stitch in her chin, but because we breathed together she didn’t move a muscle. Right then I knew the certification was worth it even if I never taught a class. But I’m so glad I did as the last 2 ½ years teaching kids 18 months to 12 years of age has been a joy and I love every minute. Classes are not like an adult class; using music, games and stories, but the smiles on their faces when they hold a pose and repeat positive affirmations gets me through any bad day. I teach or have taught at ELF (Morgantown Early Learning Facility), the Boys and Girls Club (two different elementary school after school programs), as well as volunteering at area school wellness nights and other community outreach programs. I love spending time with my husband Jeffrey and daughters, Samantha and Madelyn, as well as our two dogs Nikki and Tilly. I served as PTO President at Mountainview Elementary, President of the Children’s Discovery Museum of West Virginia which is now Spark! Imagination and Science Center where I am currently the fundraising chair. Certification: CLY TT Basic
