Mary Alice has been practicing yoga for nearly three years and is a Personal Trainer at Genesis Health Clubs with a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science. She began practicing yoga to restore the flexibility she had always known and found it to be very relaxing while contributing to overall balance in her own fitness.

She plans to continue her pursuit of the RYT 200 teaching certification through the Yoga Alliance.
