Private or Semi-Private Sessions


Expand your yoga and meditation practice through private instruction. 

  • Is a past injury still causing you difficulty? 
  • Do you want to figure out a certain pose or poses and how to make them work specifically for you?
  • Does the thought of going to a group class give you the willies?
  • Do you crave a more spiritual and/or philosophical connection that you just aren't getting from a group setting?

These are just a few of the many reasons to seek out private yoga and meditation instruction. Finding a teacher with advanced knowledge in anatomy and alignment, mindfulness and meditation, and practicing yoga off the mat is the biggest hurdle. I would be honored to guide you in your endeavors. Contact me to discuss your needs and pricing. Make a plan to create a more healthy, joyous, peaceful YOU!

Classes in the Community


Mary primarily teaches community classes at Bliss Body Yoga. Bliss is on Lake Boone Trail between 440 and Rex Hospital. Mary teaches weekly classes in several different yoga styles. She teaches Flow, Yin, Gentle, and Restorative Yoga and Meditation. And, often her sessions include Tuning Fork Therapy® or essential oils to complement the yoga practice. 

In addition to teaching regular weekly classes at Bliss, Mary also substitute teaches other classes when her time permits. Check out her class schedule for regular and special class offerings.

Workshops, Trainings, & Events


Do you want to dive deeper into your yoga or meditation practice? Workshops and trainings are a terrific way to get more out of your practice than a simple 1-1.5 hour class.

Workshops can give you additional insight into the philosophical aspects of yoga and they can provide a longer practice time to find deeper ease in postures or to take your practice to the next level. 

Mary offers workshops on anatomy and alignment, philosophy, deeper asana practice, Tuning Fork Therapy®, how to use essential oils, and so much more. In addition, Mary often participates in special events around the Triangle area. Recently, Mary taught at the Raleigh City Museum and participated in the Health Fair at Person Street Pharmacy.
