Hi, I'm Mary. I am a certified yoga teacher, personal trainer, Pilates instructor, and Power Yoga for Sports coach, and I am passionate about helping people reach and go beyond their goals in order to achieve their peak potential.
I have been teaching yoga since 2009, and have studied and trained extensively with Shiva Rea, the creator of Prana Vinyasa, Erich Schiffmann, the creator of Freedom Yoga, and Gwen Lawrence, the creator of Power Yoga for Sports. I am a 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance, having earned my 200-hour certification with Shiva Rea in Prana Vinyasa, and my 300-hour certification with Gwen Lawrence as a Power Yoga for Sports Senior Elite Master Coach. I am also a certified Personal Trainer and Pilates Mat Instructor, and I specialize in functional movement and mindfulness training, rooted in anatomical alignment, biomechanics, and neuroscience. When it comes to achieving goals, in fitness and in life, alignment and mindset are key. When you align your mind, body, and actions, you can achieve absolutely anything.
A dedicated practitioner of mindfulness meditation, I infuse my teaching with mindfulness techniques and mindset training to promote deep awareness of mind and body and facilitate transformation through mindful movement.
A lover of movement since childhood, I grew up training in ballet, and later found my great loves of yoga, fitness, martial arts, Pilates and strength training as pathways of personal transformation. A lifelong student and practitioner of Ayurveda, I am developing a Power Yoga for Sports course about the application of Ayurvedic principles and Power Yoga for Sports practices for injury prevention, sport sustainability and peak performance.
