Marlene Boyette, a 300 RYT certified Trauma Informed Yoga Instructor, was raised between Central Massachusetts and Central Texas. She started on a meditative and yogic path in her teens, reading books such as “Siddhartha” , “How to Practice” and finding her deepest sense of peace while seated amongst nature, under the full moon at the Wachusett Reservoir. After moving to Boston in 2003 and beginning a personal yoga practice, Marlene first became certified to teach Children’s Yoga in 2013 and in 2016 was trained and certified by 4 Corners Yoga + Wellness in Dorchester as a Trauma Informed Yoga Instructor. Presently, Marlene teaches Yoga & Mindfulness full time at The Advent School in Boston’s Beacon Hill, has co-founded two yoga social justice initiatives (Peace in Boston and Blck+Blnd) and independently offers countless community classes and workshops, collaborating with organizations and institutions throughout the city of Boston. She is dedicated to using yoga, meditation and overall wellness as a catalyst for supporting, empowering, building and healing communities and believing in yoga as radical self-care and self-preservation, especially for people of color.
