With nearly 18 years of dedicated practice, Mary has become an internationally celebrated yoga teacher, embodied the true meaning of yoga; the unification of mind, body, and spirit. Her journey began in an overweight body, struggling with addiction, depression, and anxiety. After much dedication to the practice, her life radically changed.  When she realized that the physical asana practice was a mere scratching of the surface of what the practice has to offer, nothing would have been the same again and she blossomed in ways she could have never imagined. As she dove passionately into herself, she began to flourish and expand. The teaching brought her to Los Angeles, where she tapped into what she considers to be an extension of her practice, surfing.  Her deep love for the ocean and the sport lead her to create a ocean conservation, non-profit organisation, Daana Blue. Through this organisation she is living yoga, being of service to the Earth, community, and humanity. 


It has been Mary's honor to teach children, the elderly, women's groups, surfers, at festivals, retreats, on the beach (her second home), events, online, for corporations, in numerous studios,  as well as privately.  She has also been featured on Girl Central Television, Voyage LA Mag,  The Inertia, Female Creatives, The Amplified, twice on Yoga Audacious, Exceed Evolution, is a speaker and mentor for the Skillify panel, and The Modern Sacred Circle Podcast.  She has partnered with LA Unified School District, the Educare Foundation, and Beyond the Bell. She is also a social media influencer, inspiring humans internationally to expand their innate beauty and light.

Her students are of all body types, levels of fitness and practice, demographic, and age ranging from 1-82! Styles of yoga Mary specializes in are Vinyasa, Hatha, and Restorative, Yin, Kundalini as taught by Yogi Bhajan, and Kids Yoga, primarily focused on hands-on and verbal alignment cues, as well as meditation. She has chosen to dedicate her life to teaching yoga because it has liberated her and brought her to self-realization. It is the fulfillment of her heart to elevate the collective consciousness and to inspire others to do the same through a life of mindfulness, love, inner-peace and generosity.

With numerous trainings done in India and the US under the foremost authorities in Yoga, she has studied in the Raja Yoga tradition, been trained by Kundalini Yoga Legacy Teachers, and has studied under Usha Devi direct disciple of BKS Iyangar,  Mary has an insatiable appetite for continuing her education. She continues self study of the 8 limbs of yoga and anatomy/physiology and welcomes her student to join her on her journey of personal growth and soul expansion. With all the the years of study, she believes that she has lifetimes of information learn and share, and is appreciative to be on part of a practice with no end.
