Mary Klonowski is an experienced yoga practitioner since 1985 and yoga instructor with over 15 years teaching in various venues throughout Chicago, including yoga studios, cancer wellness centers, health clubs and privately in her home. Mary’s interest in yoga derived from her interest in health and fitness, originally as a complement to athletic triathalon training back in 1985. Her interest in yoga grew and she completed the teacher training course under the tutelage of Suddha Weixler, disciple of Swami Narayanananda in 1995. Mary had been practicing yoga with Suddha for ten years prior to the completion of her teacher certification and considers herself lucky to have been part of the initial group of Ashtanga practitioners in Chicago. She is happy to bring the joy of her practice to students at the Chicago Athletic Clubs to help members pursue a form of yoga that instills a sense of alignment and flow, while building strength and flexibility to their physical constitution, and to enhance their lives through the peacefulness and calm that comes after the practice is completed.
