Mary Pafford


began her yoga journey in Europe in the early 1970s. She has been teaching in rural Northern California, the Bay Area, and other parts of the United States and Europe since 1985. Mary's yoga practice and teachings are influenced by her commitment to vipassana meditation and the desire to unearth the inner guru in herself and her students. In recent years, the breath, belly and the chakras have proved powerful mirrors in her exploration of the spirit in movement and stillness. Since the early 1990s, Mary has been training local and visiting teachers in ongoing workshops and seminars in Ukiah and Anderson Valley. Contact Mary at 707-468-4842 or visit
