From her early adult life, Maureen has always had a fascination and keen interest in exploring spiritual enrichment, eastern culture and philosophies.
In her early twenties, Maureen studied a Traditional Japanese Martial Art that led to many trips to Japan to immerse herself in tutelage from the Grandmaster and culture. This led to 15 years of study and introduction to Traditional Chinese Medicine, Reiki, Shiatsu and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). Teaching was a natural progression and she operated a studio in Surry Hills for 10 years.
After having children she continued her love of movement and staying fit but felt “something was missing.” Only attending various yoga classes spasmodically in the last ten years, led to a more regular practice after becoming injured with back and knee issues. Hatha and Restorative yoga were her predominant styles of yoga classes, until being introduced to Hot Vinyasa and Yin which really cemented her love and fascination of all things yoga. The breath, movement, philosophy and self-enquiry ignited a desire to continue learning and “dive down the rabbit hole”. This led to completing a 420hr, Level 1 Teacher Training at Qi Yoga, Sydney under the tutelage of Mark O’Brien and Joan Miller and 50hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Dr Truth Robinson, Yin Living, Manly. 2021 will be filled with further study as she commences a Diploma in Shiatsu and Natural Therapies.
Maureen believes in supporting her students in a holistic manner and encouraging them to be authentic to themselves and following their own journey
