Mary is a pure pleasure to work with. She is creative, compassionate, and has an amazing work ethic. Mary radiates with authenticity and her passion for living yoga shines though in all that she does. Mary’s devotion to the international yoga community is truly inspiring and heartfelt. She is a positive change maker and a natural light in the world of modern yoga.
I had the honor of employing Mary for over 15 months at the Hariharalaya Yoga and Meditation Retreat Center in rural Cambodia. Mary served as head yoga teacher on over 50 retreats, leading groups of up to 30 people. Mary’s dynamic, creative, awareness based teaching style was thoroughly enjoyed by students of all ages and all levels. Her professional attitude, her positive approach and friendly demeanor always added to the team. In addition Mary lead workshops, yoga at the Temple tours and private yoga lessons, where she designed over 100 individualized personal practices for her students. Yoga and conscious living is clearly a passion for Mary, not a job, and she demonstrated that over her 15 months at the center. She is a great leader and a team player. In addition she lives what she teaches. Mary is always learning and growing, and she shares this joy and inspiration for life with all of her students.
Mary was hired as the head yoga teacher during my three year spell as the General Manager at Hariharalaya. She did an excellent job and played a pivotal role in leading the retreats. When I moved to Nihiwatu to become their activities director, my first move was to bring Mary on-board to head up our yoga and wellness program. One again she has excelled in this new position.
