ABOUT MARY JANE

Thanks for stopping in! Here's my story. I love inspiring others to find their best self by enhancing their inner and outer landscape, through the practices of yoga and feng shui. I've been a practicing yogi for over 20 years, a nationally certified yoga teacher since 2008, and a feng shui consultant/teacher since 2002.  Prior to that, I was a practicing Respiratory Therapist and Dental Hygienist for the University of Medicine and Dentisty.

It was in 2005 when I opened my own company known as 5 Element Designs that now does business under the name of Body Space Alignment. In and around 2004, I started my feng shui school that focuses on traditonal compass methodology and landform.  My school, Teaching Tortoise School of Feng Shui achieved the highest standards set by the International Feng Shui Guild
