"Mary is an exceptional teacher. She breathes and shares yoga with the rare voice and wisdom only someone born to teach –– and who has been deeply touched by it –– is capable of. Her teaching shines –– an ideal combination of precise technical expertise and the spirit of what real practice is all about. The world needs more Mary Bruces." ~ Rod Stryker, Founder of ParaYoga®, Author of The Four Desires
"Mary meets you where you are. Whether you need to release physical tension, clear your head or open you heart she can offer a practice that is the perfect prescription for your day. She is good medicine. Her classes are a welcomed respite and healer when I'm out on the road." ~ Jennifer Nettles, Grammy award winning songwriter, lead singer, Sugarland
Gather Yoga Announces the GRAND PRIZE winner of their Swiss contest!
April 4, 2014-
While our grand prize winner Francelle packs her bags for her once-in-a-lifetime Swiss retreat experience, we’d like to share a little more love with the yogis from our contest.
First, we must confess that the point tally was close. So very, very close, in fact, that we felt compelled to recognize and honor the amazing social media outreach efforts of our runner-up: who happens to be none other than Gather Emissary Mary Bruce! To express our appreciation, we have invited Mary to teach at our retreat this summer…and she has said YES!
Look for information coming soon about Mary's classes in both Switzerland and France.
"Being told I was "too" sensitive used to make me feel insecure and think something was wrong with me. I found ways to numb my feelings that were destructive. Finding yoga brought me home to myself. I now know that sensitivity is one of my greatest core gifts. My power lies in my ability to connect deeply to Source and subtly weave my curiosity into the tapestry of my everyday offerings. Now instead of shrinking I welcome and boldly trust my intuition to guide me in becoming the spark of the Divine I am meant to be."
