Mary graduated YT200 at Mandala Yoga Center in 2023. She has been a Yogi since 2015 and her love for teaching comes from 10 years in Education classroom as an Elementary teacher. After big changes to better balance work and family she began to work at Mandala as a receptionist. After taking the 200 hour training course she decided to join Mandala as a teacher. Being at Mandala brings her peace and relaxation. Her love of restorative kept her coming to yoga and she now desires to provide a calm, nourishing class to fill others back up so they too can continue to shine.
Bio: My journey with yoga began about 10 years ago when a local gym began offering a yoga class. Frustrated with a gym environment, I joined a yoga studio and it was there I was exposed to the mindfulness of yoga and fell in love with it! As one who looks for growth opportunities, I decided to deepen my practice by completing 200 hr yoga teacher training at Mandala Yoga in 2020. I had just completed a 25 year career as a clinical social worker and felt the mindfulness of yoga would smooth this transition. My personal yoga style is to bring a bit of energetic playfulness into the practice, while focusing on the fundamentals of asanas. I embrace the philosophy of yoga is for “every body” and enjoy offering classes that encourage self-acceptance, confidence, growth, and grounding. I am ever grateful for my teacher, Becky, who keeps me grounded, humble, and in love with yoga!

“I was introduced to Aerial Slings by a childhood friend. It became a passion of mine that expanded to include Split silks and Lyra. I love Silks and I found strength, beauty, and self-confidence expressed through my art. I believe that we all can fly and create beauty no matter who we are and where we may be in life. I share my aerial passion and interest in yoga with my daughter and love of acrobatics and super heroes with my son.
I began teaching Aerial at Mandala Yoga Center in April of 2022. I am certified as an Aerial Sling instructor through Pura Vida Studio in Raleigh.
When I’m not flying on silks I also have an associates degree in Computer-aided Drafting and Design working locally at her full time job as a Drafter.”
