Maggie is a Himalayan Institute certified hatha yoga teacher. Since she began studying yoga in 2008, she has traveled the world studying with several yogic masters; such as, Seane Corn, Rod Stryker, and Sadie Nardini. She draws her teachings from many different traditions and life experiences. She is very passionate about the emotional, physical, and spiritual benefits of yoga and feels that since she began her journey on the spiritual path of yoga she has begun to understand herself and the world around her on a deeper level. She believes first and foremost, that the practice and teaching of yoga is an extremely personal experience and that it is indeed a journey. The joy is in the journey. She is grateful to have learned through yoga that fulfillment does not come through the end result. This realization has enriched her life tremendously. When not practicing and teaching yoga, Maggie enjoys spending time in and being inspired by nature with her friends, family, and loving husband. Some of her other passions include kayaking, mountain biking, hiking, and camping.
