Maria has been practicing Yoga for the last 8+ years but 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 first realised. Yoga helped her find the balance in life that she was seeking and yoga become a lifestyle rather than just a physical practice. From here, she hasn’t stop learning all aspects of yoga. She still considers herself ‘a student’, always keeping an open curious mind, 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. And during her journey into motherhood she felt in love with prenatal yoga.

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 every moment; and to connect with their true self.

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 and cared for. Her teaching style is focused, but not restricted to Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga, 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. She loves the Ying and Yang aspect of yoga, the needed balance of life.

She also loves teaching FlyHigh and Acroyoga and creating the sense of a community it brings along. She enjoy the playfulness and teamwork experience of its practice. Who knew that trust and fear facing exercises could be that fun.

Maria is originally from Denmark but have lived the past 6 years in Bali. She found her home away from from home on this magical Island, where she now now live with her husband and son.

Travelling changed her 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.
