Mary Malboeuf 
Yoga Instructor

Hello, my name is Mary

I am the yoga instructor here at Frontier Fitness Club. I have always had an active lifestyle with some sort of exercise in my life. I first tried yoga here at the Frontier Fitness Club the summer of 2007 and loved it the first time i did it. Coming regularly i found yoga to be the best all around exercise with amazing benefits for everyone. I decided to go for some training to improve my own practice and maybe have the opportunity to substitute for our regular instructor here at the club. I realized quickly that i would need to teach on a regular basis to be able to substitute, but within 6 months, the instructor left. I now teach 4 classes a week. With consistent yoga practice you will gain not only flexibility but strength and balance.
