abramo mauraMaura has found Yoga to be essential to her well-being, developing a more regular and consistent practice over the past 10 years. Through a variety of health issues, family dynamics, work struggles, and emotional challenges, she has always found that yoga was always there for her whenever she was ready. It is the grounding practice that allows her to reconnect, slow down, look inward, and quiet her mind from all the swirling distractions.

Maura graduated from YogaLife Institute's 200 hr. Classical Yoga Teaching program in December 2019. Since 2012, Maura has been working as a Physical Therapist Assistant which allows her to work with patients in an intimate one-on-one setting providing therapeutic treatments that are individualized for safety and effectiveness, while providing variations to keep patients free from pain. In 2013, Maura completed a 25-hr. Chair Yoga Certification from Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health and in 2015 completed an 18-hr. Restorative Yoga Workshop with Erin Ehlers. Maura combines her yoga skills, training, and experience with those gained from her physical therapy experience in order to create a unique experience for her students by accessing her in-depth knowledge of anatomy and physiology, kinesiology, pathophysiology, injuries and contraindications. Through her choice of language and cueing, she is able to facilitate her students' awareness of their own bodies and make each student feel that they are exactly where they should be on any given day. Maura is passionate about teaching private clients and small groups to cultivate a more personalized and individual experience for her students. Off the mat, Maura loves to travel and explore with her husband, spend time outside hiking, running, and paddle boarding, as well as cooking, reading, spoiling her two kitties (aka the bunnies) and being a homebody the rest of the time!

A treasure trove of yoga philosophy!

Our teachers, as well as our daily practice, serve to provide a "reminder" of what we already know in our hearts and souls to be true. The following writings reflect these reminders that we need practice and more practice, and a community that supports us in our path towards enlightenment.
