The years of training, study and experience of teaching people with different symptoms, have allowed her to transfer the benefits of Yoga to a therapeutic dimension, in span of the physical, energy and emotional level altogether.
The primary object of her classes is offering guidance for each practitioner to come in contact with his/her body and cultivate acceptance and understanding towards it. Usually, people, especially in the West, due to stress and the intense pace of everyday living, lose their connection with their body, and, in turn, the body finds a way to talk to them through a pain or some disease. This kinesthetic is the most useful tool to continue to work with his/her body through asanas (poses) and all the other fundamental and therapeutic tools of Hatha Yoga which are:
The recitation of mantras (ancient Indian texts) is an integral part of her classes, bringing herself and everyone participating in her lesson closer to the sensation of having a lesson in India, the country which Maria loves very dearly and that is essentially the basis and the tradition of all that she embraces and carries through her teachings.
The experiential element along with the conscious functional use and evolution of the body that someone will gain from one of her lessons, is an experience he/she will definitely want to relive…
Briefly: HathaYoga – Nada Yoga – Yoga Therapy – Restorative Yoga are the systems of Yoga upon which the structure of her classes have been based.
On special occasions, such as workshops or retreats, “detoxification” is a subject she loves to share and advise others upon, through diet, satkarmas (detoxification techniques), and exercises (asanas) that the tradition of Hatha Yoga recommends.
