Mary started getting interested in recreational rides about 15 years ago, loves riding the trails and road rides, and started spin about 4 years ago. She loves the work, loves the challenge, loves that each person sets his/her own pace, and that it's great for all ages and fitness levels. Fitness should be fun, not intimidating, and feeling good is addicting.
I started practicing yoga to counter the tightness I was experiencing due to running. Little did I know how my practice would greatly influence all aspects of my life. I had the opportunity to study with Meg Galarza and completed my 200 hours of teacher training in the spring of 2014 through Yoga One Studio. Trained in vinyasa flow, I feel honored to share my enthusiasm and knowledge of yoga to our students. I aim to create a positive, welcoming, and safe environment for all. When I'm not teaching or practicing yoga, you'll probably find me on my bike, swimming, or running. In addition to all of that, I am the very lucky mom to two girls.

She loves to draw connections between the physical practice and the psychological, relieving stress and encouraging mind-body awareness. She especially enjoys teaching students new to yoga.
