**About Mary Barnes
Mary Barnes is one of New York City's most energetic and well-respected yoga instructors. A certified fitness teacher and personal trainer, she discovered yoga in 1987 and has used this 4,000-year-old practice to develop flexibility, strength and focus—and to aid in the births of her two young children. Teaching since 1990 and specializing in pre- and post-natal yoga since 1993, Mary offers classes that are invigorating, enlightening, and joyful. Whether teaching pregnant women or new moms and their babies, Mary incorporates the full range of yoga poses, along with expert attention to alignment and breathing. With help from doctors, fitness specialists, and other qualified yoga instructors, she developed the Barnes Method and a series of workshops on Yoga for Pregnancy, Yoga for Labor & Delivery, and Postpartum/Mommy & Baby Yoga. Mary is an Anusara Affiliated teacher and has trained extensively with John Friend and other Anusara teachers, including intensive therapeutics training. Her greatest teachers, however, have been the hundreds of women who have taken her workshops since 1993. Mary believes that yoga can help a woman become strong and centered and put her in touch with her own intuition. This makes a woman feel more confident—and more competent—as she prepares for motherhood.
