The Ashtanga yoga practice found Mary in the form of once a week led half primary class at her local gym in 2012. The pre-set sequence and the focus on aligning breath with movement formed the foundation of her practice. She began a daily practice in 2013 and maintains it to this day. She has traveled to study with Richard Freeman, a certified teacher of the Ashtanga lineage and completed a month long Teacher Intensive at the Yoga Workshop in Boulder, Colorado with him. In Hong Kong, Mary studied with Hortario Perez, an authorised level II teacher in the Ashtanga lineage. Outside of the Ashtanga tradition, Mary completed a 200 Hr teacher training and has studied privately with Nirmal Sewda. She believes that with a dedicated practice, yoga can inform every aspect of life and it allows us to live with awareness and compassion.
