Mary Kimberlin is a Certified Advanced Rolfer. She began her journey into Rolfing in 1991 when a Physical Therapist recommended it. In 1999, she completed her advanced studies in Italy and Germany as well as additional training in both cranial sacral therapy and visceral manipulation.
Rolfing is a way of restructuring bodies by gently lengthening, stretching, and loosening connective tissue (muscle and it’s wrapping) with a goal of better alignment, ease of movement and greater vitality. Benefits of Rolfing include heightened energy and awareness, increased flexibility, relief from physical pain, better posture, relief from chronic tension and greater ease in exercising.
Mary's extensive Rolfing background gives her unique insight into the numerous muscular connections which control the mechanical movements of the skeletal frame. In addition to her experience through Rolfing, her own ongoing yoga practice further deepens her understanding of anatomy and the way the body moves within each pose.
Through this unique vantage point, Mary's analysis of each individual's patterns enables them to learn how to use their own body to help restore balance and flexibility.
Mary has been teaching both Iyengar based and Hatha yoga since 1995 and is a Certified Pilates instructor. She teaches workshops focusing on integrating yoga and anatomy to create increased intelligence and awareness in the body.
