Maria Hamburger

Maria has been studying yoga for almost two decades, after spending her youth as a professional modern dancer. She finds that through yoga her passion for movement, anatomy and self-expression coalesce with her interest in living a life that is aligned with her heart and true nature. Yoga fulfills Maria’s desire to help others harness the benefits of an ancient practice to living more confidently and healthily in the modern world. 

  Maria is a Certified Yoga instructor. She teaches yoga full time to students of all abilities. Her classes are both physically and spiritually engaging. Maria’s enthusiasm for yoga as a means of awakening spirit and helping us live joyfully in our bodies is infectious. 

  In addition to weekly classes, Maria has co-taught numerous Teacher Trainings and Immersion programs. She also leads workshops and yoga retreats locally and internationally. She has a private practice where she works with musicians, students with injuries and Multiple Sclerosis as well as those who simply want to go deeper into their yoga practice. 

  Maria is studying Functional Range Conditioning, a technique for building and expanding functional movement through strength and control, and will be a certified practitioner in early 2019. In her teaching of asana, she likes to incorporate different forms of movement that help students develop awareness of particular muscles and build strength for everyday life.

  Maria enjoys incorporating the myths, legends, and poetry of the yoga tradition into her classes. She also likes to weave in tips for healthy living drawn from her study of Ayurveda.
