About Miriam

Yoga & Conscious Dance Teacher
Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT)
Miriam Joy Dowd, Yoga Maya Center, Ypsilanti MI.

As the Yoga anatomy teacher for the 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training, she specializes in an embodied approach.  Her interest has led her to study self-myofascial release using balls, foam rollers, and other tools.  Her methodology in teaching anatomy focuses on an embodied experience of how fascia, bones, muscles and the nervous system work together in yoga postures, injuries, and movement patterns. 


Miriam has a focus on women's health; for fertility, pregnancy, postnatal recovery, menopause, and especially throughout a woman's menstruating years.  She is currently a student of international yoga therapist Uma Dinsmore-Tuli (womb yoga), and has also trained as a postpartum doula, specializing in yoga’s sister science, Ayurveda, as an approach to women’s wellness after birth. She shares this work over at www.sistervillageyoga.com


Miriam also designs authentic Websites for Small businesses.
