Yoga is a continuous journey of life for Mary and she is excited to share this process with her students. Mary learned Iyengar yoga is the 90's and recently reintroduced yoga into her life. Her approach to teaching is mindful, inward and a celebration of mind, body, spirit. "I am always looking for ways to inspire students to embrace where they are presently on their mats and to encourage a deeper understanding of their journey. Everyone has the ability to practice yoga."
At a private session in Chicago, she was told to stop making a silly face during a pose and took this as a sign to allow some awkwardness and humor in her practice! Mary approaches yoga with a beginner's mind and open heart.
Inspired by many yoga teachers, through meditation and mindfulness classes, and continuing education, Mary strives to bring a philosophical, alignment oriented and gentle acceptance Hatha class to her students. Mary is a 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance.
Kristin Shuler has been practicing yoga for 15+ years and received her Yoga Teacher Certification through the inaugural class of Teacher Training at Mosaic Wellness in Germantown, WI. Her draw to yoga is the mix of physical fitness and stress reduction. Her background in science inspires her interest in anatomy and optimization of physical structures. As an overstressed, overcommitted working mom, the ability to use yoga to reduce anxiety, depression, and overall stress is a necessity. Her goal is to share this balance with similarly overcommitted individuals.
Her philosophy as a yoga teacher is to embrace and accept your body. Classes are not designed to mimic “Instagram perfect” yoga poses nor are they a full-on cardio workout. Respect where you are and relish what you can become.
