Always preferring an active lifestyle, Mary K. was initially drawn to yoga as just another alternative to breaking a sweat and getting in a great workout. What she didn’t expect to feel after that first class was a craving to explore and learn more about the ancient and beautiful bodywork that now provides the framework for a life she feels passionate and excited about living. With over 1,000 teaching hours, Mary K. brings to the mat experience in a laid-back and playful approach, wanting to make yoga fun and accessible for every type of body. She is a 200hr yoga teacher graduate from Yoga Well in San Diego and after relocating from California in 2011, she completed her prenatal teacher training (RPYT) at Charm City Yoga in Baltimore under the guidance of Heather Brown, certified childbirth educator and doula, and creator of Yoga Birth.
