About Mary

    I believe we can all thrive and come out not only ahead but transformed.  I train individuals not only for the moment but through a process and understand what it means to facilitate and coach a highly functioning way of life.


   I am a former Wall Streeter, First VP, 16 year Bond Trading Floor Economist and Strategist with a Masters in Economics from NYU and a B.A. from Rutgers University. I use my experience in the field to teach others how to use exercise and yoga to be their best even in the toughest environments.  My formula is simple: strengthen the body, steady the mind. 


    I am a personal trainer with the National Academy of Sports Medicine, also certified by Jillian Michaels completing both her BodyShred certification and studies in LifeStyle Coaching. I am also certified by the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America and influenced by the techniques of celebrity Romanian trainer Radu.


   I am also trained in Ashtanga and Sivananda Yoga.  I was certified by Beryl Bender Birch's Hard and Soft Yoga Institute and the International Sivananda Vedanta Center in Neyyar Dam, India. I have trained with world renowned teachers in India, Europe. and the U.S. includiing the now deceased Sri K. Pattabi Jois. I ran two NYC Marathons, climbed Mt. St. Helen's, survived 9/11 and the Indian Tsunami.  I have met the Dali Lama and have been blessed by spiritual leaders.  My youngest student was an infant; my oldest was  90 years old.  


   I am here for you to share my wisdom and expertise on fitness, health, and life.  I come equipped with knowledge, compassion, and understanding to educate with tools to create health and healthy life skills and practices and to help nurture in you a seed of commitment to oneself.



"I now enjoy both  yoga and fitness training due to Mary's precision, motivation, support, and genuine care."
