Maria Baldi

"I always knew my vocation was to support others to tune into their empowerment. I found Yoga when I going through one of the most challenging transitions in my life and the practice helped me to find the inspiration and support I needed to make it through. My intention is to support others in the process of discovering the potential and wisdom within. I strive to create a learning environment that fosters inclusivity and community."

Maria (M.Ed, RYT®500) has been formally studying and practicing yoga since 2013.

She completed her first yoga teacher training in Rishikesh, India, from where she was inspired to travel to Kerala, in south of India, to gain personal insight into the ancient wisdom and practices of Ayurveda. She is currently preparing to become an Ayurvedic consultant.

Her personal experience recovering from chronic pain and developing menstrual cycle awareness inspire a compassionate and holistic approach to wellness & recovery
