Yoga with Mary


Mary Bastien began her yoga practice in 1997 in Venice, CA. She completed her first teacher training with Shiva Rea, Max Strom, and Saul David Rea. Shortly after Mary met Rod Stryker and is certified under ParaYoga.  


In 2004 she came to Hawaii to share the Tantra Hatha Yoga approach to practice and opened Open Space Yoga with her husband, most recently opening Ayurveda Hawaii in Oahu's north shore. Mary is the senior teacher for Open Space Yoga's 200hr Teacher training course. Mary has been teaching the 200RYT since 2002. Mary also, teaches the 300RYT and Open Space Yoga Ayurveda wellness course.


Mary has studied Yoga & Ayurveda  under Kathryn Templeton, Dr. Suhas Kshirsagar, David Frawley, Claudia Welch, Robert Svoboda & Shambhavi Chopra. She also continues her studies in Sanskrit with Dharma Widmann.  Her classes support the traditions of Yoga, Tantra & Ayurveda while applying them to the modern world.  

     “I highly recommend the teacher training course at Open Space Yoga. It’s both rigorous and fun, and covers a wider range of materials than I could’ve ever imagined. An added plus is that the teachers come from a variety of traditions, giving one a broad view of the yoga world.”

If you choose Open Space Yoga for a teacher training program, know that you are in safe, comfortable hands, yet you will be pushed and challenged to learn and grow about yoga philosophy, asana, pranayama, meditation, but mostly, about yourself.  You will grow not only as a yoga practitioner, but as a unique person as well, on a path to the very best you, forever changed from your experience."
