Mary has been a devoted yoga student for over two decades. She began her studies of Hatha yoga at Integral Institute in New York City, initially to find relief from a sports injury. She soon discovered the benefits of yoga to be above and beyond the physical. Mary has since studied with renowned teachers, including Seane Corn and Shiva Rea, at numerous studios, in the many different styles of yoga. It was while practicing prenatal yoga, twelve years ago, that Mary became inspired to teach. She finally took the plunge when Daniele Jarman began offering Vinyasa teacher training at Exhale Yoga (now Ignite Yoga Center) in 2009. She is eternally grateful to her mentors and fellow students for providing such a supportive environment in which to fulfill her training.

A fine artist and graphic design professional for over 20 years, Mary brings a sense of creativity to her practice and encourages her students to do the same. Mary is continually inspired by her fellow teachers, the local - and global - yoga community, and perhaps her greatest teacher of all, her daughter. Mary finds daily inspiration for her practice in motherhood, making art and sharing the healing aspects of yoga with her students.

Specializing in kids yoga - from baby and me to teens - Mary has spent over 1000 hours in the field teaching at schools and studios throughout New Jersey. She also offers family, gentle and prenatal yoga - as well as corporate, group and private Vinyasa classes for all levels and ages. 


In 2015, Mary launched her yoga-inspired women's and children’s clothing brand Lotus & Bug, bringing her passion for yoga and design together.
