Mary has studied yoga with renowned teachers like Seane Corne and Shiva Rea, but her practice is inspired by the greatest teacher of all, her daughter. Her yoga practice began over 15 years ago at the Integral Yoga Institute in New York City. Mary knew she wanted to teach when she started practicing prenatal yoga while pregnant with her daughter. She is a 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 200) and received her certification through Exhale Yoga Studio. She is eternally grateful to her teacher, Daniele Jarman, for her inspiration and support. A lifelong designer, Mary encourages students, both little and big, to infuse their practice with creativity. After focusing her teaching on kids, family and prenatal classes, she was inspired to create a kids yoga clothing line, Lotus & Bug. Mary can’t wait to share with everyone her passions for yoga, clothing design and motherhood all in one place at Powerflow Yoga Kids!
Hilary stumbled onto her mat 1998, and has hardly stepped off since. She was initially drawn to the variety that yoga offers from vigorous vinyasa yoga classes to silly toddler yoga adventures. She completed her 200 hour teacher training in 2010, and went on to achieve certifications in prenatal yoga in 2012 and meditation in 2014. She adores sharing her perspective with everyone from babies to adults. When Hilary isn’t wearing sweatpants and slinging a yoga mat over her shoulder, you’ll find her carrying a diaper bag. She’s still wearing sweatpants, but with her little girls in tow.
