"Move the body more than you move your mouth. You’ll start living from a deeper place."

-mary lyn jenkins
Want to start moving but in a personalized way, specific to what your body needs?


Big Fish Co. offers yoga and movement designed just for you with more than 20 years of teaching and continued education in nutrition, personal training and yoga as the foundation.


As an E-RYT 500, Mary Lyn offers personalized movement and yoga for private clients. She has worked with the NFL developing recovery programs with yoga as the focus for six years and was the cover model of Yoga Journal magazine in August of 2016. 


To book private classes, first consider what you want and need. Although you may not know exactly what you want, you do know it’s time to move. The beauty and benefit of working privately is zero time wasted and customized, personalized work designed just for you. Hips, back, shoulders, core — movement is medicine for the body and spirit. With a blend of yoga and strength training using your own body’s resistance, your only real needs are a room in your home and a willingness to learn. 


Should you need a mat, one will be provided for you. All props for strength work and yoga practice are introduced. Over time, it is encouraged that you invest in simple things (mat, strap, block, band) so the work you learn through private sessions can be done even on days we aren’t meeting. 

what can i expect?

I ask private clients to allow 60-75 minutes of quiet time without distractions for our initial three sessions and with no phone interruptions. While we work physically, we also work mentally. A good coach loves and challenges you! And this is why you’ll experience results. After three sessions, the ideal session is an intentional 45-50 minutes. If you’re ready to work in ways designed specifically for you, gain clarity and understanding of necessary daily movement  and build a strong, lean body this is the place to start!
