It was over 15 years ago when I attended my first yoga class to help ease body pain and stiffness from Fibromyalgia. I practiced a variety of different styles at local studios.
I then started practicing YIN and Restorative during my teacher training in early Spring 2007. The YIN was difficult at first to hold the postures for longer periods of time, but after my fifth or sixth session, I knew then I found the right “yoga for my body-type”. Finding ease in my discomforts started to come more naturally. I was less stiff and found more focus and steadiness on my mat. My breathing improved. I had less knee and back pain. Restorative was an added bonus to the practice!
June 2008, I received Certification for my 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Transformations, Oshawa, Ontario. I then started to offer private YIN & Restorative classes at my home studio and continue to do so today.
December 2013, I completed a 400-hour Yoga and Ayurveda Advanced distance learning course, through the American Institute of Vedic Studies, New Mexico. I received Certification as a Yoga and Ayurveda Wellness Consultant.
My teaching style is a blend of YIN, Hot Stone Restorative and Ayurveda.
Change is not something that we should fear. Rather, it is something that we should welcome. For without change, nothing in this world would ever grow or blossom, and no one in this world would ever move forward to become the person they're meant to be. - B.K.S. Iyengar
Reiki Practitioner/Avid Yogi
Mary is a trained Pediatric Nurse who has worked in the school system with students with various abilities for 25 years. Her one goal in all this was to help others.
Around 8 years ago, when I was going through a stressful time in my life, I learned about Reiki and decided to have a treatment. The experience was amazing and I decided to research it further.
I have taken Level 1 and Level 2, which enables me to practice Reiki hands on and distance healing. Distance healing can be performed from anywhere, when the receiver is unable to be present.
Reiki has brought me inner peace and tranquility knowing that I can help others by bringing the earth's healing energy to them. While the energy passes through me, it also heals my mind, body and soul. I am excited to be combining Reiki with Yoga and look forward to this amazing experience.
