A note from Mary...

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, all classes will be given virtually through Zoom. You do not have to purchase Zoom to receive classes through it as it is a free platform for users. You will only be paying the class fees.

We will look to the future when we can get together again. In the meantime check out our Zoom schedule for online classes (with instructions for using Zoom)!

If you are not able to use Zoom due to internet capacity you may purchase recorded classes, email Mary for more on this.

Yoga Gift Certificates make great gifts.

Some of my thoughtful clients asked about gift certificates (which will help me keep our beautiful space until we can open again). Call (231) 526-5041 to order or order online!


Why should you practice Yoga? To kindle the divine fire within yourself. Everyone has a dormant spark of divinity in them which has to be fanned into flame.

B.K.S Iyengar

To begin Yoga classes at North Woods Yoga if you are a new student: 

Email Mary at, and she will help you pick the appropriate class.  

All classes are taught by Mary Reilly, Iyengar certified at the Intermediate Senior 2 level personally by B.K.S. Iyengar. All asanas are taught in each class, but some experience is expected except at the primer/new beginner/gentle yoga level. If you are already an Iyengar or North Woods Yoga student buy a class pass of any size at the zoom link. You can use it anywhere on the schedule that works that week. Keep track of how many classes you use by requesting the zoom links from Mary by email, stating I will be using the 4th out of 8  for example. Alternatively, if you attend class weekly or more, you can be asked to be on the 'all codes' list and you will receive all the codes for the coming week on Sunday. You also must keep track of usage yourself in that case. You may request a recording of a class you attended, the recording will be accessible for 30 days. If you do not attend the class and want the recording, count it as a class taken from your class card.

Any passes will be good until at least the week of Thanksgiving.
December's schedule may be reduced, it is yet to be decided.

Helpful equipment to take class at home, (called props):

  • Sticky mat
  • 1-2 yoga blocks
  • 2-3 blankets of wool or cotton that can be neatly folded to make a firm rectangle
  • 1-2 yoga belts, cloth belt at least 6 feet long with an adjustable buckle
  • a stable armless chair
  • a piece of wall is very helpful
  • optional: yoga bolster
