Born in Lisbon, Maria is a 300 hour Jivamukti Yoga Teacher. Her belief of an extended compassion, towards all Beings, lead her to this path. In 2018 Maria met her teacher, Olga Oskorbina, and starts travelling to Barcelona frequently to deepen her spiritual practice. Thanks to the support of her teacher and her dear friend Rebeca Recatero she’s decided to travel to Costa Rica for the 2019 TTC with Moritz Ulrich and Emma Henry. Since then, she has been teaching Jivamukti Yoga classes in Lisbon, facilitated workshops and events – deeply focused on building a strong community in her city.
Maria believes in regular and consistent practice as a means of perfecting relationships with All of existence. She is dedicated to protect animal rights which she tries to pass on her students by conveying a compassionate behavior towards all Beings.
She is currently taking 500h Apprenticeship Program under the guidance of her teacher, Olga Oskorbina, to whom, along with the Jivamukti Yoga Barcelona community, she is deeply grateful.
