301 Plungington Road,

My name is Maria and I have been practicing yoga since 2014. Helping people feel good with themselves has always been my priority. Since I was young, I always enjoyed the experience of movement, that’s why I practiced ballet and contemporary dance for over 8 years. It was truly a passion, which I sadly had to give up after injuring my knee. This, however, opened my eyes to the world of yoga and how movement and rhythm can be expressed through a different form. My injury also helped me to listen to my body even deeper and adapt each pose accordingly.

It wasn’t just dance, but also my studies and experience in nursing which helped me realise how healing and beneficial yoga can be for everyone – both in the body and the mind. This realisation lead me to Rishikesh, a place close to the Himalayas in India. There I immersed myself in Hatha and Ashtanga training, successfully completing over 200hrs of intensive teachings and meditation.

My teaching style combines both Hatha and Ashtanga in a slower vinyasa style. This gives me the time to demonstrate each posture completely and allows you to better understand and truly feel the benefits of each asana/posture. The key message I bring to my practise and teaching is “Yoga is not a workOUT but a workIN”

Finally, three years ago, in a magical place called Reykjavik, I discovered yin as a practice and there I shared my knowledge of yoga with people from all over the world. This adventure in that lovely Icelandic city revealed to me that working in a spirit of community and support, we can create a safe and meaningful yoga environment where we can support each other and grow.

All levels are welcome, from beginner to expert, as the classes are small in numbers Maria is able to accommodate to all requirements.


“ I cannot thank Maria enough for how her fantastic yoga sessions have helped improve my posture and relieve pain.  I spend most of the week working on computers and over the years this has caused me constant discomfort and sometimes significant pain. Maria really listened to me and tailored my yoga session to focus on the problem areas.  Giving time to really breathe into each pose and reach an optimal stretch.  You feel it the next day, but then the relief!  I also love the small classes because of the individual attention you can get where Maria can gently adjust your position so you get the most of the stretch without causing harm.  Yoga has always been great to connect with your body and mind, and with Maria, has proven such a beneficial physiotherapy solution for me” – Alex Starritt, 2022

Things to know before joining a pilates class with us

Prior to joining a class, it is compulsory to attend a one to one session with a Yoga Instructor. The purpose of this is to discuss your individual medical history, any previous injuries fully and in confidence and any goals you may have, so that the instructor can design the classes with your needs in mind.

We accept all abilities in our classes, wether a beginner or an intermediate we can tailor our classes around you.
