Maria has been practicing Yoga for the last 7+ years. From a young age, she was always passionate and interested in a variety of sports. It was in 2013, during her travels in Southeast Asia when she fell in love with yoga. During that time, she discovered yoga had much more to offer than she realized. This helped find the balance in life in which she was seeking. From here, she hasn’t stop learning all aspects of yoga. She still considers herself ‘a student’, always learning and getting inspired by others.
Maria completed her Vinyasa – Yoga Teacher Training (registered with Yoga Alliance) at Power of Now Oasis, in Bali. Since then, she has completed trainings and workshop in Yin Yoga, Restorative, FlyHigh Yoga and Acroyoga. Her journey didn’t stop there, as she took a 100hr training in “Thai Yoga Massage” at Sunshine Massage School in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
One of her main goals is to share the benefits of yoga and bring more mindfulness and awareness into peoples lives, to live and enjoy the moment; and to connect with themselves. Yoga is not a competition.
As a teacher, Maria always has a big smile on her face along with her soothing voice, to create a space where everyone feel welcome.
Focused, but not restricted to Vinyasa and Hatha Flow, she loves to create a dynamic and challenging practice. Maria also teaches slow and deep Yin and Restorative Yoga. Including Pranayama breathing exercises, to center and balance her students during practice, helping them reach a meditative state of mind.
She loves the Ying and Yang aspect of yoga, the needed balance of life.
She also loves teaching FlyHigh and Acroyoga. Enjoying the playfulness and teamwork experience of its practice. Who knew that trust and fear facing exercises could be that fun?
Travelling changed Marias life and opened many doors. It’s that one thing she just loves. Planning the next trip in this big-small world, exploring new places and learning from different cultures. Just loving every aspect of it, almost as much as she loves chocolate.
