I am Maria, I am the founder and main Yoga teacher at Yoga MariSol Mallorca. I would like to introduce myself and tell you how I became a Yoga teacher.
Yoga has been a major part of my life since I started university in Cologne – during stressful periods of study I found yoga, and since then I’ve never looked back. I started my practice with Hatha Yoga and was overwhelmed by the intense impact of this ancient tradition. After some world travel subsequent to my time at the university I lived in Australia for a few years. I discovered more forms of Yoga such as Hot Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga there.
Back in Germany I kept practicing mixed styles and after working some years in corporate business it was time for a career change and I returned to Australia for some traveling and to find my life’s purpose. I spend my days in beautiful Byron Bay practicing yoga daily and falling in love with Yin Yoga (A more passive form, focused on softness and intense stretches). I realized Yoga had been the real constant in my life and always made me feel amazing. I felt inspired and ready to embark on a new journey. One which would allow me to pass on my passion to others and hopefully inspire more people to make positive changes in their lives.
I flew to India, and traveled to Rishikesh, which is known as the home of yoga, to do a teacher training program which didn’t just teach me the different asanas, the correct alignment of the poses and pranayama, but also lots of the ancient Indian tradition and the philosophy of yoga. It was the perfect base to start my journey as a yoga teacher.
Soon after my training in India I did an additional Yin Yoga teacher training in Cologne and founded Yoga MariSol Mallorca. That was in 2017. I’ve been teaching with passion ever since and continuously evolve as a teacher through my students and further Trainings. Additional trainings I completed are an advanced Yoga Teacher training in Costa Rica which allowed me to deepen my knowledge and gain new perspectives, a prenatal Yoga training in Mallorca, which inspired me to start prenatal Yoga circles & Yoga for Women as well as Yoga for Stress and Anxiety with Bex Tyrer from Bali, which i personal see as my greatest inspiration when it comes to creating a safe space especially but not only for Women.
My big passion is Yin Yoga. I am offering Yin Yoga Teacher Trainings which are certified with the Yoga Alliance as continuing education. It lights up my soul to share the wisdom of Yin yoga with my students and see how they start to embody the Yin aspects of life. If there’s something we need in this world it’s the softness of Yin. I also offer group or private Yoga classes for either Yin Yoga or Yin Yang Yoga, Women’s Circles with every new Moon and Women Selfcare Retreats.
To cover the high demand of private Yoga classes I have several amazing Yoga Teachers I am working with. Please reach out to us for any requests.
We hope to see you on the mat.
