Formerly a public interest attorney, the physical demands of motherhood and a plague of backaches and neck aches led Mary to yoga. She was inspired by the strength, flexibility and grounded sense of well-being that it brought to her life and was fascinated with the way the practice of the postures sculpts the mind and consciousness as well as the body.
Mary found the Iyengar method when she moved from San Francisco to Boston, and the method opened the door to a progressive, ever-deepening and engrossing practice of asana.
Mary brings a warm, sunny, compassionate nature to her yoga instruction and a deep desire to share the practice with others. Her intellect delights in the precise and logical nature of the Iyengar method and she loves finding new and illuminating ways to teach the gifts that yoga has to offer. Students can expect to learn the detailed, nuanced alignment of yoga asanas based on the Iyengar traditions, as well as learn ways to support their physical and mental wellbeing through their practice.
Mary has primarily studied with Lois Steinberg, Liz Owen, Patricia Walden, Peentz Dubble, as well as others. She is a certified Iyengar Yoga Instructor with the Iyengar National Association, and received her Intermediate Junior II certification in September 2019. In both January 2011 and 2014 she spent a month studying with the Iyengar family in Pune, India.
Artemis Yoga is committed to enable individuals with disabilities to participate as fully as possible in classes at our yoga studio. On the first level there is a wheelchair accessible entrance, yoga class studio and bathroom.
All classes on the first floor are wheelchair accessible in our flagship, primary studio. The lower level studio is reached by two stairways. In the event that a class in the lower level is not accessible to a participant, the studio owner or manager on-premise will adjust that class location to the first floor, grade level studio. With reasonable notice, this change will readily be made as an accommodation.
The request can be made in person, via email or telephone and advance notice of the request to the studio is appreciated. Artemis Yoga will make an earnest effort and attempt to provide reasonable accommodation pending timely notice by participants needing such accommodations.
Artemis Yoga will also work with the individual to ensure that participation in class is achievable. This may include providing additional props, chairs or hands-on assistance that the teacher is able to deliver while continuing to teach the class to all participants.
If you have any questions regarding this policy, please reach out directly to the studio owner, Liz Padula.
