After living the corporate fast track in Boston as an advertising director for magazines, Mary Kaye redirected her positive energy into a more family friendly career writing books and teaching children yoga. Drawn to its peaceful, heart opening benefits, yoga was the only outlet that helped her slow down and focus on what’s important in life. As a former athlete, Mary Kaye only knew how to move fast and push herself. Now her goal is to share yoga with the world so that other people benefit like she has.
