About Me

Mary Reid, PhD, RYT-200

It is my passion to help people improve their lives, health and fitness through movement. I am a certified yoga teacher, Pilates instructor, and personal trainer, with a PhD in Literature from the University of California, San Diego. Passionate about learning, I have spent countless hours studying, practicing, and teaching yoga, Pilates, and fitness in order to offer research- and evidence-based practices to help you improve your strength, flexbility, mobility and mindset for optimal health and fitness. 

Yoga for Athletes

As a firm believer in the benefits of yoga for athletes, particularly for injury prevention and sports performance, I have trained in Power Yoga for Sports with Gwen Lawrence, named by ESPN as "Best Innovation in Sports Medicine." This innovative system offers sport-specific yoga training to improve athletes' power and performance on the playing field, as well as reduce the risk of injury and lessen recovery time. 

Personal Training

As a teacher and trainer, I am committed to designing personal training sessions to help you achieve your goals and stay motivated on your health and fitness journey. My passion, drive, and joy as a teacher and trainer is to help people reach their fitness, health and performance goals to live, move and feel better in their bodies.
