Maria is an Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher and Health Coach (Institute for Integrative Nutrition, 2016). She completed the 500-hr apprenticeship with Jules Febre during Summer 2016. Maria teaches the beautiful harmony of linking intention, breath, and movement through a comprehensive yoga practice. Always striving to make Yoga accessible to everyone, her classes are challenging, insightful, and playful. Prior to teaching and coaching, Maria worked as a city planner in New York, Beirut, and Abu Dhabi. She has a Masters degree from Columbia University and lives in Beirut with her two cats and dog.
She gives thanks to her teachers Yogeswari, Jules, and Rima for their continued support and guidance, to Sharon and David for offering their wisdom endlessly, to all the teachers disguised as students along the path, and to the Jivamukti global satsang for just being.
