TYBO Street View

New Teacher - New Classes

Jennifer began practicing yoga over a decade ago to heal an injured back, and continued moving forward with her practice as she valued the fortitude and mindfulness she drew from her time on the mat. After exploring various types of yoga, Jennifer was inspired to deepen her yogic path and became an instructor through Mira Costa's teacher training program. She is grateful to have studied under many seasoned yogis, and draws inspiration for her personal practice from the power and grace of nature. Jennifer applies dynamic sequencing, healing pranayama, and balancing energy work to her classes, which are based on strengthening and releasing stress from the body. Her intention is to create a space for students of all levels to expand their practice by cultivating the confidence to find transformation on and off the mat.



Classes with Maria

Maria first learned about yoga back in 1999, while taking a Buddhist Architecture class, and has been practicing since then. She was attracted to it by the spiritual aspect of it. “I had been wanting to meditate for a long while, thus I saw yoga as a way to slow my mind down and be in the present.” As her practice deepened, María began to experience the benefits of a steady practice. Yoga helped her alleviate the side effects of stress at work and hours of sitting in front of the computer.

María has been physically active all her life. As a young child in Argentina, she danced, did gymnastics, and ran track, among other activities. She is passionate about health and strongly believes in a holistic approach to it. “Yoga has been one of the most powerful and transforming experiences in my life. It has made me physically, mentally, and spiritually stronger.”

María draws inspiration from her personal Ashtanga practice. She is thrilled to share what she knows while she continues to grow as a student and teacher. Her goal is to create a welcoming and safe environment for students to experience yoga while guiding them through their personal practice.

María is a graphic designer, a dancer, and a nature lover. When not practicing yoga, you can find her grooving to Brazilian beats, making yoga pants with her mom, or watching the sun setting over the ocean .

“The body is your temple. Keep it pure and clean for the soul to reside in.”

She also currently practices on a regular basis with a variety of accomplished teachers. She has worked for most of the last 26 yrs in counseling and health care. She has confessed to being pretty uncoordinated and had rather bad posture. However, through the practice of yoga she has gained not only a physical strength and balance but an emotional strength as well, that has been a great support in challenging times. She has also gained some stillness of mind, not to mention much better posture.

These are the kinds of benefits she would like to share with you.
