Born in the mountains of Western North Carolina, Mauni discovered her passion for yoga at the early age of 12 when she discovered she had scoliosis. What started as a morning practice before school blossomed into a journey exploring different styles at various studios in her home area, from Ashtanga, Hatha, Yin, ect. It wasn't until 2014 when she stumbled upon Dancing Dogs, a cute Baptiste studio in Greensboro, NC that she found the style she knew she wanted to be trained in & teach to others. In December 2014, Mauni got her 200 hour RYT concentrating in Baptiste power flow from Dancing Dogs Yoga in Bluffton South Carolina & has been teaching Baptiste & gentle vinyasa flow in Asheville North Carolina ever since. She currently works at Inspired Change Yoga in South Asheville & Xcel Sportsplex in Fletcher, NC.
