Mardi Chadwick-Balcom, Teacher
Mardi completed her 200-hour yoga teacher certification through the Pranotthan School of Yoga with Jovinna Chan, hosted through Roots to Wings. Mardi believes yoga is the pathway to self-healing and inner peace. She began her yoga journey almost twenty years ago after the birth of her first daughter. She was looking for a way to “ease” back into a fitness routine and walked into a yoga class at the Fitness Factory with Chris Morton. From there she was hooked. She has practiced various styles of yoga over the last two decades, however, is drawn to the Kripalu style of meditation in motion as a way to ground and connect to deeper sense of self and spirit. She brings a calm presence to class and encourages her students to connect deeply to their breath and body. In addition to her teaching, Mardi works at Brigham and Woman’s Hospital overseeing programming for survivors of trauma, violence and abuse. She has seen first-hand through her work the transformative power of yoga on healing and recovery. She lives in Newburyport with her husband, Brian, their daughters and dog Bailey.
