Mary-Louise Parkinson

Mary-Louise Parkinson

Mary-Louise first experienced yoga while at high school. This introduction to yoga proved to be be the steady, unbreakable thread weaving its way throughout Mary-Louise's life. 

Mary-Louise spent 20 years in the IT industry. She was one of a hand-full of women who reached the status of General Manager of a US computer company. 

After the birth of her first child she qualified as an IYTA teacher. She went on to study with Simon Borg Olivier, Shandor and many different styles of yoga, including Iyenger, culminating in qualifying as one of the first teachers of Dru Yoga in Australia. 

She has always been an advocate of natural child birth and the benefits of yoga throughout pregnancy. She established a large following at her Harbord Yoga Centre where she introduced one of two major pre-natal yoga schools in Sydney. 

She is a counsellor and has written a book for new mothers, helping to deal with the emotions of motherhood. 

She and her young family moved to the NSW South Coast 7 years ago to establish Budawang Eco Yoga Retreat. She runs regular training and pre-natal certification for yoga teachers at Budawang as well as for IYTA and Dru Yoga teachers.
