Mary Payne

Mary Payne, originally from Lafayette, LA moved to San Antonio in 2014 to discover new possibilities in life. She started dancing at the age of two but lost the ballerina inside due to a struggle with a drug and alcohol addiction early in her teen years. She got sober at the age of 18, and to this day it is her greatest accomplishment. Wanting to move and feel her body again, she discovered yoga in 2008 and immediately fell in love with the quietness it brings to the mind. Mary holds a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Renewable Resources from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. She has a 200 HR. YT Certification from the Southtown Yoga Loft and is certified with X-pert pole fitness level I and II. She describes yoga as an art that has come to life and the masterpiece you create on your mat is something to take home and share in your everyday life.
