Mary I started yoga 25 years ago taking a short level one, YogaFit training. This was just to add CEU for my Fitness Leader Certification. I realized at that first class that yoga was my calling. Being one of the early teachers in the Upper Peninsula and in the Marquette area, introducing Yoga to the community took hard work and lots of classes at a real discounted rate. I held classes in the Bell Hospital, Sports Rack LTD for about 15 years. Eventually running out of room it was time to open up a studio for myself and other certified teachers to have a nice quiet space to teach. I sold my studio 3 years ago and have been working more on Ayurveda and My yoga teacher training program in the U.P. I also travel internationally to teach at resorts and at Bicycle tours through the U.S. I finished my ERYT-500. ERYT-500 is a high level, but realizing yoga is a long journey, I will continue to get education in as many of the faceted branches of Yoga. In the year 2013-2014, I returned to school to learn the sister science of Yoga, which is Ayurveda. Ayurveda is the East Indian form of medicine which is considered the oldest continual form of health care. Ayurveda is about identifying when the body gets out of balance and then try to correct it with diet and lifestyle. These small imbalances lead to a production of ama or “Toxic sludge” that can move through the body and cause “dis-ease”. My role to to help identify when you are out of balance and form a plan to bring you back and feel great again. My love for teaching yoga as a form of the mind body fitness and wellness, will help, heal, work, strengthen, stretch, balance people's lives, and just feel good.
