The Instructor

Maryann Szalka
Yoga Ambassador

Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher, ID #57151 200 ERYT
My yoga journey began in 2001, and continues to this very day. I love teaching yoga and it shows in my words, classes and music. Hatha yoga is my foundation, but I enjoy teaching Yin and Yoga @ The Wall. Having worked in health care my entire life, I am knowledgeable in anatomy, physiology, medicine and the disease process. Skilled at offering modifications, I can make yoga accessible to any BODY. You will often find blocks, bolsters, straps and blankets used in my classes - whatever it takes to make you comfortable in the pose. But, you will also find sweat towels in my classes, since they can be challenging! My mantra is "If you are not challenged, you can not change."
My classes are peppered with anatomy lessons, music trivia, book reviews and lots of inspirational messages.Savasana always includes a gentle neck/shoulder massage with some aroma therapy to help you relax.
My students are my best teachers!

About Maryann Szalka


Lakeview at Fontana

Inspired by sun-filled Mediterranean bungalows, our accommodations embody the Lakeview mantra that true luxury lies in life's simple pleasures – and having plenty of time to revel in them. Think pillow-soft down comforters; pure Egyptian cotton sheets; and naturally pampering Aveda bath amenities in all 20 suites. Televisions are blissfully absent (except in our TV room, where guests can snuggle up to a bowl of popcorn and their favorite shows, or sip and surf with a glass of wine and our guest computer).

Queen and double rooms are ideal for singles or couples, while one-, two- and three-bedroom suites are equipped with kitchenettes for larger parties or longer sojourns. Please review our pet policies or call us to learn how to enhance your Smoky Mountain vacation (we've been recognized as one of the top Smoky Mountain cabin rentals in Bryson City, N.C.) or spa getaway by bringing your four-legged companion along for the journey.

It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. The environment was beautiful, peaceful and most relaxing. The accommodations and food were excellent. The staff went out of their way to service us by being flexible, showing concern for our needs and changes in plan. The p nature/hiking trails were breathtaking and offered a good exercise challenge. I look forward to revisiting this wonderful place.

Great yoga retreat! Besides yoga there was plenty of time to go exploring in national parks and checking out near by towns.
