Feathered Pipe Ranch, Helena, Montana

By chance yesterday I discovered that a brilliant yoga instructor, Mary Dunn had passed on. I had met Mary briefly during a yoga retreat in Helena, Montana. For years I had heard what a wonderful teacher she was. Honestly I have to say her reputation did not do her actual presence justice. Mary had a beautiful mellifluous voice that forced you inside the pose giving me the stretch to hold poses longer and further than I had before.
One morning of the retreat I got the opportunity to share grub with Mary and found her to be very down-to -earth and as lovely inside as she was outside. Yesterday with tears streaming down my cheeks I read her blog written until 4 days before she passed.
The world is a better place for having Mary here though way to brief.
