Mary offers integrative health education based on her personal yoga practice and study, which spans nearly three decades. She has taught yoga practices since 2002 and offered yoga-based therapeutics since 2007. Her teaching is informed by the master instructors who have guided her as well as perspective and understanding gained in credited coursework in anatomy, physiology, biology, kinesiology, cadaver dissection and therapeutic movement. To formalize her decades of study, Mary earned a master of science in yoga therapy at Maryland University of Integrative Health. She is registered as a certified yoga therapist with IAYT. She is also a certified iRest Level 1 teacher-in-training. Her scope of practice includes physical postures, breathing exercises, restorative yoga, and mindfulness techniques such as meditation and heart-centered communication.
