Mary began practicing Bikram Yoga at the suggestion of a friend. She had been looking to try a yoga class and the hot room intrigued her. She loved that you could practice as a beginner in the same class with veteran students. The practice helped her run more that 15 half marathons and complete a mini triathlon which was on her bucket list. After 35 years in health care working as a respiratory therapist she retired and started working the front desk, eventually training to become an instructor. Now if you don't find her in the hot room teaching, practicing yoga or taking a HIIT class, check the nearest golf course.
