Mary Lauttamus has a gift for creating yoga classes that make people feel calm, focused and energized. Her classes are designed with a specific purpose in mind – to give people the tools that will help them find balance in their lives and to come away feeling more of who they already are – a being with infinite possibilities! She offers a safe environment for students at any level and invites them to discover their own playful nature, to develop a keen sense of curiosity and to dwell in limitless possibilities.

When Mary is teaching a power or vigorous class she guides students to challenge themselves in a healthy way, deepening self-awareness and emerging feeling whole and complete. Her language of alignment is designed to be instructive so that students develop a keen sense of self awareness and know when to push to the edge and when to surrender to a powerful inner strength. She has been heard to say ‘ when I see a student in child’s pose, I know the student is listening to their body’. Mary inspires students to discover their true nature and with it gain access to the powerful transformative energy that resides within.

Mary is also a student and teacher of integrative therapeutic yoga – the application of ancient yoga tradition in today’s world to help people find optimal health. She partners with physicians and physical therapists to help patients learn to manage chronic health conditions including Type II Diabetes, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Fibromyalgia, and the effects of various cancer treatments. Stress is the major cause of illnesses that are seen in physician’s offices today, learning to work with stressors and the affects of stress is a major aim of therapeutic yoga. Mary works with students to create individualized programs so that students learn how to work within the current context of their lives and find ways to create a different context that reduces stress.
