MARY EVANS RYT-200 Anusara-Inpsired™ Teacher

Mary’s love of yoga first began in the 1980s when she discovered teacher Lillias Folan and her program “Lillias Yoga and You” on a local PBS television station while living in rural Michigan. After nearly three decades of dabbling, guided by the TV, tapes and DVDs, she found her yoga bliss when she wandered in to Bodhi Coyote Yoga in Cave Creek in 2008 when she moved to Arizona. As her practice evolved, a search for deeper meaning led her to teacher training in 2013. Inspired by the beauty of nature and life’s subtle and sometimes not so subtle messages, Mary’s classes connect alignment based asana to the breath and to the Divine within us all. The mother of two grown sons, she lives in North Scottsdale with her husband and their very spoiled dog, Louie.
