What People Are Saying About Mary

"I travel extensively with a very demanding schedule and always looked forward to my yoga practice with Mary as a great stress reducer. Through her expert guidance in yoga postures, meditation and breathing practices my flexibility has improved and I am able unblock vital energy, allowing me to regroup and direct my efforts more consciously and efficiently."
Monica Merz
President, Toys "R" Us, Japan
“We are human beings. Mary gets that! We are spirit and we have bodies and minds that need care. Thru stretching, movement, poses and counter-stretches Mary takes us on a guided meditation. It does not matter our range of motion, we move in concert to her expert and caring direction. Earthly fears and concerns are set aside for the moment; we focus on a loving intention; all is well and we welcome the rest of our day.”
David Nelson
Proctor and Gamble Yoga group
“My restorative yoga sessions with Mary are a great help to managing my work-related stress as well as relieving my physical aches and pains. As a busy lawyer, my days can be stressful, taking a toll on me both physically as well as mentally. My yoga sessions give me a sense of inner calm and focus, allowing me to focus on my breath and my body as the stress melts away. I also have advanced osteoarthritis in both knees, which causes all sorts of issues in my legs and back. Restorative yoga is kind to my knees while keeping my back and leg muscles stretched and relaxed. As I breath into each pose, I can almost feel the oxygen finding its way into those spots where tension concentrates. I sleep well, and feel great!”
