After many years in classical ballet in her native Denmark, Maria began practicing Iyengar yoga in 1992; shortly after discovering meditation at the Tibetan Buddhist center in Copenhagen as well as meditations and teachings based on Christian mysticism. She has developed her own unique style of meditation which incorporates ancient yogic breathing techniques. For 20 years, Maria has used yoga, meditation and prayer as essential tools in her life and she offers meditation and breathing as an integral part of her yoga teachings.
While loving the precision of Iyengar yoga, Maria, as a former dancer, fell completely in love with the dance-like flow of her first Vinyasa class and became a certified Vinyasa teacher in the spring of 2011. Maria teaches yoga to elementary school and college students as well as prenatal yoga. in addition, Maria offers private yogic life coaching consultations and helps students integrate a spiritual practice into busy lives.
