unnamed (10)From Maria “I love roses, being barefoot, the ocean, long walks, hot baths and fresh cotton sheets. I was born to the joy of movement and have been blessed to work and study with some of the finest teachers in the world. With a daily practice of being impeccable with the word I aim to keep my cues precise and clear – allowing class to be accessible as well as challenging. Vinyasa — informed by the study of Bikram, Pilates, and Thai Massage – I blend music, movement, breath, and Sanskrit chanting to carry the mind and body into alignment. Deeply connected with my students, I offer hands on adjustments that help lend the courage it takes to access grace, ease and the untapped power within. Together we grow curious about the ancient and magical practice of yoga.”
