After twelve years of home practice, Mary trained in St. Cloud at Return Yoga with Karin Burke Carlson, receiving her RYT 200 certificate in January, 2017. Mary developed and led Advent/Lenten yoga meditation sessions at St. John's Episcopal Church called Body Prayer. She has led classes in St. Cloud and currently teaches a weekly class at Episcopal House of Prayer, Collegeville. Mary's classes combine alignment work, inspired by the lineage and teaching of BKS Iyengar, with a spiritual element derived from the many- faceted stream of yoga which encompasses all religion. Mary is Yoga Alliance certified. She continues her Iyengar education at St. Paul Yoga Center and BKS Iyengar Center, Minneapolis.
