Margaret Townsend was first introduced to yoga while training as a young ballet dancer. She is now the owner of River's Edge Yoga in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. Passionate about the potential in all beings, she is the creator and Executive Director of Yogis for Positive Change, a fledgling non-profit organization dedicated to making a difference - one asana at a time.
Margaret is also the Founder and Chair of Virginia Yoga Week, a Celebration of Mind, Body and Spirit. Now in its 10th year, Virginia Yoga has deepened into Be Well Virginia and the Summer Wellness Campaign encouraging people to spend time outdoors with family and friends, shop at local farmer's markets, practice yoga in the fresh air and attend local concerts and performances in green space.
