In the mid-1970’s, Mary Elizabeth Sheehan stood beside her grandmother watching Lilias Yoga and You on PBS and imitating the postures. She was about 5 years old. Returning to a yoga practice in her early 20’s, she has been practicing, studying, and trying to live yoga for 20 years.
In 2008, she was invited to take a workshop in Thai Bodywork and she knew she had found her life’s work. She has studied more than 1000 hours in Traditional Thai Bodywork, both the hands-on aspect and the deeper philosophy of Traditional Thai Medicine. In 2016, she was asked to be an affiliate instructor of Thai Bodywork with the Naga Center School of Traditional Thai Medicine and Massage. She is known for her relaxed, non-judgmental attitude. With a deep understanding that wellness can come in many shapes and sizes, she brings awareness of breath, mobility, tension, and relaxation to every session.
Whether her clients are relaxing deeply for a session of Traditional Thai Medicine or moving through yoga postures, Mary Elizabeth brings her full attention to the individual she is with and how to most effectively ease their suffering.
Most recently, Mary Elizabeth has discovered Bowen Therapy. This gentle therapy has benefited clients with a range of ailments. The stillness of the Bowen sessions has allowed her to help clients with even the most serious limitations, from Parkinson’s to vertigo to hip replacement.
