Mary finds it very rewarding to work with individuals in Massage Therapy,
Yoga, Pilates or other movement forms. “I see tremendous progress in
recovery from injury or surgery, growth in understanding the body, and a
better connection to physical exercise.” In speaking on her blend of teaching techniques she states, “I
love the combination of Yoga and Pilates, they reinforce each other beautifully….each technique provides
a special but powerful component to a person’s overall wellness. I find that they improve individuals’
freedom of movement and support other sports or recreation activities. Ultimately, they help an individual
develop a better relationship with the body’s core, focus and stamina. Each person has a personal path
to healing, yet the tailored exercise forms of Yoga and Pilates can significantly reduce pain and improve
one’s outlook for long-term recovery.” States Mary.
