Mary June came to yoga over a decade ago in hopes of finding peace during a very stressful time in her life. Not only did she find peace on the mat, but so much more. Discovering the strength and resiliency of the mind, body, and spirit through yoga fueled a life journey that ultimately led to the fulfillment of a dream by becoming a certified yoga teacher through the K10 Yoga School. Helping people find balance and healing both on and off the mat is Mary June’s passion. She is completely dedicated to a holistic lifestyle and loves sharing information with others about ways we can make healthier choices in every aspect of our lives. A self-taught chef as well as a former food writer and cooking class instructor, Mary June enjoys preparing healthy, creative meals from scratch for her family and friends. She is also an avid gardener, committed to aiding and protecting the pollinators; an amateur herbalist who makes many of her own home remedies and skin care products; loves to travel, especially to the Caribbean; and enjoys spending time with her husband and three fur babies.
