Mary Combs lives near Sacramento California in Orangevale. She attends St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Rocklin California, and has been married to her wonderful husband Ben for 34 years. They have 3 beautiful daughters, the eldest married 3 years ago and they were recently blessed with their first grandchild. “Grandchildren are so amazing and I feel so blessed to become a member of the grandmothers club”, Mary said. As Mary grew in her faith she sought another avenue for prayer/meditation. She has been a Pilates proponent for over 10 years and loves to bicycle all over Sacramento. One day while exercising in a yoga class with her daughter she had a vision of praying while exercising. She started a search for something that would give her the physical benefits of Pilates along with the spiritual growth of prayer.
She found SoulCore and was elated to read about Deanne and Colleen and the SoulCore website. She was impressed with the joyful mysteries video that encompasses the physical and spiritual workout in exactly the way she was imagining . She then applied for the retreat SoulCore was sponsoring in California. “Deanne and Colleen are amazing women and made it so easy to learn how to do this.” After the retreat she was hooked and wanted to bring SoulCore back to Sacramento. Mary hopes to share SoulCore with anyone who feels the need for physical and spiritual growth. “The rosary is a powerful tool that we often overlook especially in times of stress and despair. I believe we can heal many sufferings by praying the rosary and asking for Mother Mary’s intercession with her son Jesus.”
