Our Retreat Center of Maryland family includes many not on our board.


Anne-Marie Botek

Anne-Marie first discovered her passion for the practice of yoga at the Yoga Center of Columbia in 2005. After receiving a BA in Marketing from the University of Georgia, she spent several years in Naples, FL, as editor-in-chief of AgingCare.com, a website for family caregivers. Upon returning to her home state of Maryland and attending a life-changing yoga retreat, Anne-Marie decided to switch careers, and she is now a teacher and a coach at McDonogh School in Owings Mills, MD. After incorporating mindfulness exercises into her classroom routine, she decided to deepen her understanding of the practice of yoga, so that she could better serve her students and athletes. Anne-Marie is a Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher, RYT 200, and she is excited to use her writing and marketing expertise to help the Retreat Center of Maryland grow.
