My name is Maria and I am a wife, momma and lover of nature. I am a creative being who loves deeply, dreams constantly and has more pictures on her phone of her dogs than should be allowed. 

I am a yoga and mindful movement instructor who values stillness and rest as much as mobility and strength. I am fascinated by the human body and the effects our busy lives have on our mental and physical health. To me, healthcare is self-care. I aim to bring forward nourishing practices that will help connect you to your own unique needs and help you find the balance between effort and ease.

This website was born as a resource for those who are needing a little extra support in the form of mindfulness practices, weekly movement sessions and connection to others. Thank you for being here. Let’s get to know each other, one breath at a time.
