Mary's yoga journey began many years ago in Arizona but she really fell in love with yoga when she began practicing on the beach with Tonee Detweiler in 2010. Soon after that, she met Philip Christodoulou at Anuttara Yoga Shala where she attended a Raja Yoga teacher training solely to deepen her own practice. By graduation day she was overtaken by the passion to share yoga with others so she immediately signed up for the Hatha Yoga teacher training and has been teaching ever since! Her desire to share yoga with others eventually led her and her husband Domenic to create Ahh-mazing Yoga Shala on Hollywood Beach!
Mary considers herself to be a Bhakti Yogi (a yogi of devotion); she prays daily to be a clear channel for God to use in sharing the message of yoga peace with others. Her prayer is that all beings may one day find the peace of Divine Love & Light within.
"Yoga continually deepens my relationship with the Holy Spirit within; through this relationship, I have found "the peace that surpasses all understanding, the Kingdom of God within.". ♥☼
