In the 90’s she was in a horrific car accident and broke her back, herniating 7 discs in her spine. She opted not to get spine surgery, but decided to heal herself through Bikram Yoga and diet/nutrition. She also created a series of exercises which she teaches in her Shapeshifting workshops today. Two years after the accident she was able to take this photograph, famously taking it to her spine surgeon she refused to allow him to operate on her. Through this process, Mary has become a master teacher and healer of herself and others.
