Having moved from the Midwest as a young teen, Mary found Florida to be home. She was born into a family of fitness-oriented parents, her mother being an aerobics instructor and her father a gym-rat who loved lifting competitively. Initially, Mary pursued running, enjoying the tranquility and connection to self while spending time outdoors. After countless minor injuries, she began looking for other outlets to stay fit. Yoga quickly became that outlet.
Once she became certified, she began teaching right away; her classes focus on aligned classic yoga postures, with a modern day twist. Classes are always accompanied by an upbeat playlist and encouragement to keep you going. The class offers different variations of each pose to build strength and stamina at any level.
Outside of teaching, Mary enjoys practicing at home with her three dogs, spending time outdoors, and traveling the world with her husband. Yoga holds a very special place in her heart. “I never felt strongly about anything before I found yoga. I found a sense of belonging in the yoga community that I had never known before. I want to bring yoga to each and every person that feels like they need somewhere to belong.”
