Mary was a member of the Yoga Association of Greater Detroit from 1986-1993 and studied with many visiting teachers such as Judith Lasater and other Iyengar trained teachers. After moving to Minneapolis in 1993 she began deeper studies of Raja Yoga at the Meditation Center in Northeast Minneapolis (founded by Swami Veda Bharati), where she now teaches Hatha Yoga, and Anatomy classes.
Mary teaches anatomy, using the Anatomy in Clay system (for yoga teachers and others), who wish to learn muscle names, attachments, and actions during movement and asana. Students will make muscles from modeling clay and attach them to 24 inch skeletons, viewing them three dimensionally verses in 2D from books, it is a wonderful way to learn anatomy.
Mary has traveled often to Riskikesh, India, the main center for the Himalayan Tradition, for training and to deepen her own practice. She teaches in Northeast Minneapolis at The Meditation Center (named one of the best in the Twin Cities).
