She quickly discovered not only the physical transformation that yoga allowed her, but the mental and spiritual, as well. After years of battling depression and anxiety, Maria found a sense of peace and calm she had previously thought to be unattainable. It was this mind-body and spiritual connection that made Maria, after only a little more than a year of regular practice, enter into teacher training in Spring 2015.
