“If there’s something we need more of in this world it’s the softness of Yin”
“My big passion is Yin Yoga. 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.” – Maria, Founder of Yoga MariSol
Maria discovered Yin Yoga in Byron Bay, Australia, and did her first Yin Yoga Teacher Training soon after her discovery of this calming practice. She fell in love with this softer, feminine side of Yoga and is still amazed by the healing power of the practice. She evolved her teachings by consciously studying, practicing, and teaching Yin Yoga.

I completed the 70h training “Yoga as a healing modality” in March.
Maria is a great teacher, sharing her knowledge and passion. Having a 200H TTC, I joined to deepen my knowledge in restorative/yin/healing and to know more about the regulation of the nervous system.
It opened new perspective to me, discovering the power of chanting and dancing, learning about traumas and also sharing opinions with others.
All the women of the group were very unique and the whole week gave us space to share, to be ourself and to grow. It felt really special and the Shala makes us feel we are in a bubble. After this week, I didnt only got more knowledge but I also healed a part of myself. I am grateful to have joined this training with Maria and be part of this lovely group. I can only recommend !
Maria and her course was a breath of fresh air… The food was delicious, the location was a bubble in nature, the course information and the way it was executed inspiring and it was SO wonderful that Maria allowed a space for everyone to speak/share/listen. (I have found this isn’t so common on training courses!)
To add further joy, the group itself was a special bunch of ladies that each had something wonderful to offer. Look forward to joining Maria on one of her trainings in the future. Thank you from the bottom of my heart 💙

The Yoga Teacher Training “Yoga as a Healing Modality” was very inspiring and eye-opening for me. I really liked the content about our nervous system as well as Maria’s way of teaching and leading the training. I also enjoyed very much the guest teachers for specific topics. This was very refreshing and I could take with me some exercises and tools for myself and also my work.
Even though I don’t work as a yoga teacher, the new insights were very enriching for me personally and also very helpful for my work as a coach and mentor for women.
I would recommend this training to everyone! Especially to anyone who teaches yoga or mentors people.
It is fundamental for me to be aware of our nervous system, possible traumas and our body when working with people. Especially in all the mental and spiritual work we can see around, bringing some „down to earth“ topics was really enriching.
Thank you Maria for the beautiful week in Mallorca!
I can really recommend the training.
Maria has a deep knowledge and a competence that has grown tangibly from her own experiences – which she teaches with dedication and passion in practice as well as theory.
I got answers to questions that had been burning on my heart for many years, thanks to her clear view of things and her down-to-earth approach.
I felt seen and understood and found the trauma-sensitive yoga sessions incredibly valuable.
I experienced and learned more than I could have imagined or wished for in one week.
Thank you for this enriching and nurturing experience!
I can say from the bottom of my heart that this training exceeded my hopes and expectations. The location, the group (13 people, from Australia to Ireland, USA, Denmark, Switzerland, Indonesia and Germany – it was a colorful mix of awesome souls), the daily schedule, the content of the lectures, the knowledge transmitted, the style in which we learned, the accommodation, the organization…. everything was great! I enjoyed this community of people and Maria’s orchestration throughout the week very much.
I would totally recommend this training for yoga teachers but also for interested yogi*nis who would simply like to dive into the topic of our human posibility to build resilience and response to stress and also traumatic events. It is a very good training to find balance in ones own life.
Maria herself is a lovely host, helpful, friendly, easy going, with lots of experience and had so many cool and skilled Co-Teachers up her sleeve who would teach different topics such as breathwork, mobility, etc. This made the training very colourful and wholesome.
Is the training certified with the Yoga Alliance?
Yes, Yoga MariSol is a certified YACEP (Yoga Alliance continuing education provider) and the Training is certified as such
Can I join the training without being a Yoga Teacher?
Yes, the groups are generally a mix of Yoga Teachers that seek professional development, individuals that seek personal development, introspection, self-care, and other Wellness professionals (Bodyworkers, energy healers, sound healers) that seek this training to expand their offerings.
Can I book an early check-in or late check-out?
Unfortunately, we can’t accommodate that, since the cleaning team will be busy on the day of the check-in and check-out. If you have an early flight incoming or late flight outgoing you can spend some time in Palma and the shuttle picks you up or drops you off there or you relax in some of the cafes at the airport.
Which Airport do I need to fly to and how do I get to the Finca?
The Airport is Palma de Mallorca. The Finca is off-grid and therefore not accessible by public transport. You could go by Taxi, rent a car or join the shared shuttle I am offering to organize.
Can I extend my stay and arrive earlier or stay longer?
There are usually no vacancies at the Finca, but the Finca owner Michele also owns a nice guesthouse in the center
What is the maximum number of participants?
The group at Trainings and Retreats is limited to 15.
