"Over the years that I have been teaching, I have seen yoga transform. People used to be skeptical of the benefits of yoga--thinking it was something just for the lithe and flexible. Now, we have students entering the studio every day who have been sent to us by their doctors to help with various injuries or conditions. This is why our program not only covers the common poses and how to sequence a fun dynamic flow class, but also how to adapt your classes to meet the unique needs of a wide range of students in front of you. That's what makes a good teacher--being able to make your classes accessible because you want your students to succeed."
Mary has enjoyed the practice of yoga for over 20 years and has been a certified instructor since 2005. She has been studying Anusara yoga with John Friend, Noah Maze, Desiree Rumbaugh, and Scotta Brady. Her classes can be described as meditation in motion. Mary's love of yoga and its benefits come through in her approach - encouraging all to try it and most importantly to "Breathe!" Her classes aim to guide students through postures (teaching flexibility and strength) while learning to relax and remain mindful of the breath. Students are encouraged to honor the body's limitations at any given moment and to adjust their practice and mind accordingly. Mary is the co-owner of Southern Star Yoga Center and the co-director of Southern Star's 200 Hour Teacher Training.
