About Mary Anne - "I started practicing Bikram Yoga fifteen years ago after my daughter suggested I try it for my lower back pain. After years of running and long distance driving, I struggled to get out of bed some mornings and bending over to put shoes on was impossible. After practicing for 3-4 weeks my back pain had gone, I felt so much better and was in love with this healing practice. I love teaching others and watching their postures change over time. Also seeing their overall physical and mental well-being improve. As a mother of five and granny to six, I want to have a long, healthy and happy life. I believe practicing this challenging yoga has set me on my way."
