Passionate about movement and education, Mary grew up training in ballet and fell in love with yoga and fitness as a teenager, sparking a lifelong commitment to health and wellness. During her graduate studies, Mary’s passion for healthy living led her to pursue her yoga teacher training in order to help people improve their lives through the many benefits and joys of yoga and fitness. She earned her PhD in Literature from the University of California, San Diego in the same year that she completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification with Shiva Rea in Los Angeles, and she has been helping people get fit and lead healthy lives ever since. Now a Certified Personal Trainer, PiYo LIVE Instructor, Pilates Mat Instructor, and 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher, Mary brings over a decade of experience helping people fall in love with health and fitness and get their best results while enjoying the journey.
As a teacher and trainer, Mary believes that every person is unique, and she helps clients achieve results safely, effectively and efficiently through programs designed specifically for each individual. She believes that health and fitness empower us to be our best selves and that when we tap into our deepest motivation, the WHY behind our health and fitness goals, we can achieve absolutely anything.
Mary’s passion and mission is to help people reach and go beyond their health and fitness goals to achieve balanced, sustainable, optimal health and wellbeing in order to live their happiest and healthiest lives.
