Dee Marie, M.A., C.Y.T.
After a traumatic car accident while entering a NYC taxi, doctors predicted that Dee would
most likely not be able to walk again. Unwilling to accept this dire forecast, she began her journey back to health, taking
charge of her own recovery, using exercise therapy, strength training, stress management, visualization, yoga and meditation.
During that journey Dee worked intensively as a Biomechanics researcher at HJDOI, the world-renowned Orthopedic Institute in
Manhattan, and learned strength training and weight lifting techniques from Olympic training coach, Oscar Cartes.
She earned a Masters Degree from New York University in therapeutic exercise and motor development and
became certified by the American College of Sports Medicine. Dee was also the President of the Association of Personal Trainers
in New York City for 2 years.
She has lectured on stress management and Yoga Science for the city of New York, the United Federation
of Teachers, Univera Life Science Corporation, The Optimists Club: Friends of Youth, and for the Boulder and Colorado Health
Dee spent three years studying the effects of integrating a comprehensive educational yoga program into the
elementary school curriculum to reduce aggressive behavior and bullying and increase concentration. This pilot project
proved incredibly successful. As a result, in 2006, Dee Marie was elected as the SAVE (Stop America’s Violence Everywhere)
Representative for the State of Colorado as designated by the American Medical Association Alliance. After receiving state
recognition and then the National Heath Awareness Promotions Award for her Calming Kids: Creating a Non-Violent World yoga
program for school age children K-8th grade, Dee created a training workshop for educational professionals, health care
providers, parents and all those working with children to apply these techniques to calm children and adults too!
