About Mary

As a director at a Fortune 100 company, Mary attended a yoga class in an effort to reduce job-related stress. From the first class, she felt like she was home. The classes not only reduced her stress level, but also changed how she breathed and provided a window through which to view how she could live her life more mindfully and healthfully. She knew then she wanted to share what she was experiencing through the study of yoga.

After receiving yoga teacher certification in Colorado in 2004 and teaching there for a year, she moved to Des Moines and began teaching at Fitness by Design in the fall/winter months and at her Minnesota studio, Twin Pines Yoga, in the summer. She studied therapeutic yoga at White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara in 2007 and received her 500-hour yoga teacher and 300-hour yoga therapy training from Ananda Seva in Santa Rosa, CA in 2009.  Mary is a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists.

In addition to weekly yoga classes and her private yoga therapy practice, Mary offers Yoga+Recovery classes.  She also conducts Yoga+Grief  and Yoga for Healthy Aging workshops and  kirtan at various studios in Iowa.   Mary has been guest educator at yoga teacher trainings in Portland, Oregon and Ankeny, Iowa as well as presenter at the 2013, 2016 and 2017  Central Iowa Yoga Retreat, 2014 Iowa Yoga Festival, and Meditation About Town at the World Food Prize building (2014),  Des Moines Science Center (2015) and the Iowa State Capitol (2016).
