Maureen is a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance and a Certified Yoga Therapist with IAYT. She found her way to yoga after 4 back surgeries as part of her healing journey.
She teaches traditional Hatha Yoga combining breath with movement and a strong focus on alignment. Her deep knowledge of anatomy and how it relates to the poses guide students into a deeper experience.
Yoga Therapy classes follow the lineage of TKV Desikachar's, who expanded Hatha Yoga to adapt to a population of those students who had injuries or illness using Yoga as Therapy to maintain homeostasis in the body. Yoga is starting to become recognized in the medical field as part of Integrative Medicine for managing lifestyle diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, depression.
