Maura’s yoga journey began in 2006 when she attended her first Vinyasa yoga class. The result was an immediate sense of well being and spiritual connectedness that she had not experienced previously. Yoga had captured Maura and provided a long-needed sense of safety and calm in her world.
“I was so inspired by my own yoga experience, I decided to enroll in the Yoga Works Teacher Training program in the fall of 2010. Yoga has become my passion and I truly believe that yoga is a great way to heal the mind and body. My goal is to share my passion and joy for yoga with those who will benefit most. From the very young, including youth organizations, to patients recovering from chronic illnesses and individuals undergoing cancer treatments. My hope is to help provide comfort and ease to those people, through the sharing and teaching of yoga, so that they too may find peace during difficult times.
