Like many of us, Maria found yoga because she needed it, not because she was looking for it. She began rock climbing and practicing yoga as a way to step away from the chaos she spent many years chasing after. Learning the value of a good deep breath and a full body stretch, her priorities shifted. In 2012 she received her yoga certification so that maybe she could help others find the safe space she found for herself on her mat. She has been teaching around the Akron area ever since.
