Mary integrates the powerful tools of breathing and body awareness throughout class, ending with a body scan meditation.

About Mary Zadel 

Mary Zadel is a retired healthcare executive with a lifelong passion for learning, especially in health and fitness. In midlife she was a competitive runner with the Canadian Masters Track and Field Association. In anticipation of retirement, she reinvented herself by achieving certification as a Group Fitness Instructor, a Registered Yoga Teacher and Chair Yoga Teacher.  

Mary continues to teach Indoor Cycling and Gentle Yoga as a Volunteer at the local YMCA . She taught Chair Yoga in person at a Community Health Centre prior to the pandemic. She has  also taught Indoor Cycling Classes and Yoga internationally. 

Realizing the need for helping other active seniors stay connected, fit and healthy during the pandemic, Mary began teaching Chair Yoga every week, live, on Zoom, in association with Ageless Arts Yoga. 

Mary, as a member of RBG, will explain the benefits of Yoga and Chair Yoga and how yoga can be accessible to everyone.  She will then lead us in a short Chair Yoga class.
