Mary teaches dynamic, core-focused classes that emphasize strength, alignment and function. Her teaching methodology is rooted in functional biomechanics, with an emphasis on anatomical and energetic alignment and intelligent sequencing. She encourages students to develop their own mind and body awareness by offering challenging, powerful practices in which to explore their physical limits and move beyond them.
Strength & Power (Advanced Functional Flow)
This class focuses on the inner core unit and posterior chain muscles to target the deep abdominal wall and build a foundation for long-term strength and stability. When the deep core is strong and activated, balance improves and there is greater ease and efficiency of movement. A strong core can also prevent low back pain and other injuries that can often result from weak core and posterior chain muscles.
Rise & Shine (Prana Vinyasa Flow)
Wake up and get moving. This dynamic, enlivening, and invigorating class is the perfect way to get going in the morning. You will leave class feeling energized, relaxed and focused for the day ahead.
Functional Flow (All-levels Functional Flow)
Bring your mind and body into balance with this challenging, yet accessible functional flow class, in which you will discover your own unique anatomical alignment through movement rooted in functional biomechanics.
Relax & Restore (Restorative Yoga)
This restorative yoga class is a great way to relax and unwind. Long deep holds of restorative yoga poses facilitate healing, rejuvenation, and deep rest in the mind, body and nervous system to promote health and wellbeing.
Warrior Flow (Power Yoga for Sports)
Weekend warriors and professional athletes alike will benefit from this challenging, dynamic, and powerful practice, designed specifically to balance strength and flexibility for greater power in your sport. This class will help you prevent injuries, reach and maintain peak performance for sustainability in your sport, and train the mind for greater focus and mental toughness.
“Until now, I didn't understand what a personal fitness coach could contribute to my life. I was discouraged with my fitness routines. They were ineffective and boring and I was not seeing the results I wanted. I reached out for help and it has been an extremely rewarding experience. Mary Reid is upbeat, encouraging and intelligent, and has a wealth of knowledge of body mechanics and the interplay between body and mind. Her expertise in matching specific exercise routines to body structures and personal goals provides instant and amazing results. For any fitness program to succeed, attention must be paid to motivation, resistance to change and other psychological barriers. It is here that Mary shines brightest. To me she has quickly become more than a fitness coach; she is a confidant, an understanding voice when needed most, and one of my biggest cheerleaders. I can't say enough about all I have gained while under her care and direction!” – Gwen VM.
“In June of this year I was frustrated! My doctors had misdiagnosed my tendonitis and I had been suffering with both Tennis Elbow and Golf Elbow for many years. I had also gained weight and lost a lot of my muscle strength from inactivity. This put extra stress on my joints. As a result, scar tissue and lumps developed in various places on my arms and legs. I decided that I would try to get in better shape and inquired about a personal trainer. It was one of the best decisions! Mary Reid became my Personal Trainer and I feel so fortunate to have had her to guide, plan and work with me. First and foremost, her positivity is infectious! She was able to assess and develop a personal program that really worked! Mary developed a program that improved my balance, strength, weight loss and self-esteem. I always look forward to working with Mary and we trained twice a week for three months. Boy did we see a difference in my physical abilities and also in my determination to get in better condition! The lumps and scar tissue on my arms and legs disappeared as I became stronger. My muscles became more toned and I also lost weight as an added bonus. Before we started my program I was in pain and my mobility wasn’t as good as I wanted. I was amazed that after three months there was no more pain, and I experienced a great improvement in movement and balance. I am so grateful to have worked with Mary and to have her as my Personal Trainer. Her knowledge is extensive about exercise, strength training, physical fitness, yoga and physical and spiritual well-being. During our workouts she often related movement activity to everyday real life activity to help prevent injury (for example, lifting groceries, etc.) which was helpful. I appreciate her encouragement and how she tailored everything to my individual needs. She genuinely loves her work and the encouragement she gives helped to achieve the goals we set out to accomplish! I look forward to a continued fitness journey with Mary. Working with her as my Trainer has improved my physical fitness and renewed my desire to continue to be active. It has given me a more positive outlook on being fit and a continued desire to make physical training part of my everyday world.” – Louanne S.
“I have been taking Mary’s yoga classes for almost 5 years. These classes have been life-changing for my body, as well as my mind. I have more mobility than I have ever had in my life, and the body pains I experienced in the past are gone or can be managed. Mary has taught us to release the mind from ‘I can’t’ to ‘YES I CAN!’ She has also taught us to release tension with deep breathing. I used to be the person that didn’t believe this could help, but now I am the person that knows deep breathing really does work. As an instructor, Mary makes you feel very comfortable in class. She is quick to give suggestions that work for everyone’s body individually. She knows exactly what we all need when we come to class – she’s very intuitive! I have referred several people to Mary’s classes because I want people to experience what I have, and everyone has been very thankful for the experience.” – Shari R.
“I have nothing but good to say about ‘Mary's Yoga.’ That's what I call it. Not just yoga, but Mary's Yoga. Her class deserves its own title. I have been to other yoga classes, and there was nothing wrong with them, they just didn't leave a mark with me like Mary's has. Every body needs maintenance, like taking a car in for a wheel alignment, or mechanical inspection. I GO FOR YOGA! I go to feel better. I go to relax, to stretch, and to challenge myself. I go because Mary always has something new and totally different to try and it's exciting actually! Sometimes it's hard, but I love that about her class!! From week to week I notice differences in my flexibility and strength. I have more muscle and feel way stronger than I used to, which is a huge bonus for me. I feel proud of myself after every session, especially during class if I can hold on or keep my balance a little longer. I have three children, a husband, a home, a business, even pets that I take care of, going to yoga is how I take care of myself. The only way I can describe how I feel after Mary's class is if I could have had a full body massage, combined with a full body workout! Mary Reid is smart, strong and her yoga abilities are inspiring. I am thankful to be able to attend her classes. Just so amazingly good. A must try.” – Monica W.
“What I like about Mary Reid’s classes is that she always asks at the beginning of class what everyone is feeling at that particular time, and then teaches the class with moves that benefit the whole group. The changes I have experienced over the four years I have been taking her classes are unreal. The mobility and flexibility I have now are amazing. I know that if I wasn’t doing her classes, I would not have half the movement I experience now. Mary’s personality is so positive and she brings such good vibes to all her classes. Just a ray of sunshine. I especially love how much she knows about the human body, and always stresses that everybody’s body is so different, and gives the class moves for all stages of a certain yoga pose. She is just so knowledgeable, and I would highly recommend her classes.” – Wendy O.
“Mary is a very qualified instructor; she not only can provide instruction on the pose but knows how the pose can improve your health. Every pose is explained, modifications are provided so it’s easy to follow and Mary offers continuous coaching throughout the practice. My body and mind thank me for participating in a yoga practice – even my chiropractor thanks me, even though my visits are a lot less frequent! My work involves many hours of sitting snuggled up to a computer. The yoga stretches keep me from suffering from lower back pain and the power moves keep my body strong and healthy – not to mention the feeling of a relaxed mind and mental calmness. I highly recommend yoga with Mary…you will be pleasantly surprised to find the many benefits of a yoga practice.” – Brenda P.
