C.Mae grew up in a very small town in New Hampshire where yoga classes weren't easily accessable. Despite the scarcity of classes to attend, C.Mae always knew that she wanted to practice yoga. So she began her practice the way many people do, following videos at home. She learned some things about asana and meditation through these videos, and began living more consciously. At age 14 she became vegetarian, and by the time she was 16, a woman had finally opened a studio in her town.
It was here that she took her first class, and she immediately knew that the only thing she wanted to do was to teach yoga. She still remembers the overwhelming feeling of belonging and bliss that she felt after taking that first class.
In 2011 she moved to Virginia Beach and found ABYS, her yoga home. Since, she has completed her 200 & 500 hour teacher trainings. C.Mae now works full-time teaching, and helping to manage ABY with her husband, AJ Jones.
