about your teacher
Mary was introduced to Pattabhi Jois’s Ashtanga Yoga in 2000 and is endlessly grateful to her first teacher, V.K. Sheshadre. In 2004, after returning from her second trip to India, Mary began to explore other styles and traditions of yoga. Teaching Vinyasa was the obvious next step for Mary because it gave her the inspiration to be more creative and intuitive. It allowed her to take her deeply disciplined practice, knowledge of asanas (postures) and pranayama (breath), and begin to sequence with more spontaneity, intuition and dynamism. Currently Mary has taught over 2,500 class hours and has led workshops,Teacher Trainings and retreats nationally.
