Mary Reeds Crowley
Mary practices, teaches and lives yoga. A devoted yogini, she imparts her passion for creating and maintaining a holistic lifestyle in her teaching. A lifelong athlete, she recognized the value of yoga to her body, while participating in Div. 1 Track and Field at the Univ. of Hawaii at Manoa, quickly followed by the amazing impact it had on her overall health and outlook on life. Encouraged by her self-awareness, health, wellness and fitness, worldly travels, and the arts, she is constantly seeking growth through continuing education, as well as by serving and teaching others.
A White Lotus certified yoga instructor, Mary had the privilege of studying directly under Tracey and Ganga White, gaining her 200hr. as well as Advanced Yoga Teaching certifications in Vinyasa yoga. Teaching adults has been and continues to be very fulfilling to Mary. But having been a preschool teacher, a nanny and now a mother, she was inspired to share the many benefits of yoga with kids, leading her to become a Yoga Alliance certified Kids and Families yoga teacher, as well as a certified teacher and trainer with Yoga Ed. Both the Rainbow Kids Training and the Yoga Ed Training combined with her outgoing and creative personality, have influenced the way she teaches.
In her immense gratitude for what yoga has given to her own life, she hopes to assist in bringing this positive awareness, not only to the world, but most specifically to our future, held by our keiki.
“What better time to learn the many benefits of yoga than as a child, when you’re beginning to form lifelong notions about yourself, the world around you and where you fit in? Children are amazing little people that are great teachers; they constantly remind me to let go, relax and have fun!”
Kellen, an athlete and water woman at heart, has recently discovered yoga as a way to not only improve her physical fitness and health but a way to improve her mental capacity, health and stamina. With past experience in the business world and current experience teaching and serving as a school counselor at Punahou School, Kellen is a believer in lifelong learning. Her belief in this ideal has pushed her to teach, sharing knowledge with others, especially our youth, allows one to directly impact the future.
Kellen graduated from Punahou School, then went on to graduate from Loyola Marymount University where she played Division 1 Water Polo. After living in Los Angeles for almost 8 years she and her family returned home to Oahu in 2012. Kellen is Married and has an almost 2 year old son.
