Yoga Alliance CE for yoga teachers

I am Maria and I am your host and teacher.

I am a Health and Fitness Professional (BSc) and yoga teacher and therapist. I have been teaching Chair Based Yoga for almost 5 years now.

My aim is to provide safe and effective practices for my students that address their imbalances.

Chair Based Yoga for me is the gateway to doing meaningful work. It has opened the doors to new populations who benefit greatly from the practices.

The yoga becomes this tool that improves mobility & strength, but also provides ways to manage chronic and age related conditions. This is why I strongly believe that Chair Based Yoga serves a purpose greater than asana.

"Approachable, knowledgeable … passionate"

"If you have a chance to train with Maria definitely take it"
