YGB is Excited to Welcome Mary Kirkendoll as its New Ambassador!

Mary Kirkendoll, Kansas
Eudora Yoga Center

Mary Kirkendoll is the owner of the Eudora Yoga Center in Eudora, Kansas. Born and raised in California, Mary earned three degrees in classical flute performance from music schools in New York and Kansas and has taught and performed classical contemporary music around the world. It was in 2009 that she was introduced to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, and will be forever grateful for the opportunity to be a student of this beautiful practice. She received yoga teacher certifications and is thankful to all of her many teachers for their support and guidance. In 2015 Mary opened the Eudora Yoga Center, sold her flutes, and is following her interests in Sanskrit and Zen. She lives with her husband, her mother, and her dog Mr. Sam.

"At the prompting of another ambassador, I sat down to hear a YGB presentation at the 2016 Ashtanga Confluence. I was impressed by the mission of this organization, but did not truly understand how effective their efforts could be until I took my first trip to South India the following year, visiting small villages and tribal communities. I witnessed other impressive organizations with similar missions, and am grateful to have the opportunity to work with YGB as Mother India continues to open her loving arms to all of us."
