GUEST TEACHER BIO
An artistic wanderer with vibrant Filipino roots, Maries has been traveling the globe since 2013. Two years ago the crystalline shores of Santa Teresa tugged at her heartstrings, stopping her in her tracks. A certified yoga instructor with a wealth of experience, Maries has enjoyed teaching for over 14 years. With a staggering 1000 hours of teacher training under her belt, she has trained and taught in some of the world’s leading yoga centers. From yin yoga in Bali, to Bikram in the Philippines, to Ashtanga Mysore in India – her knowledge in the field is extensive. Having derived immense positivity and personal growth from her practice she revels in sharing her experience with others. Yoga has humbled and inspired Maries. Teaching is her way to be of service, express gratitude and maintain a profound connection to source. She is also a passionate artist and a keen environmentalist. As the sole founder of non-governmental organization, Children for Rescue, enhancing the lives of street children in the Philippines is a cause close to her heart
Maries fell in love with yoga as a spiritual practice many years ago. As a teacher, it is her deepest intention to hold space for others to feel, with the knowledge that they are supported and loved unconditionally. She empowers her students by showing them how to explore the dynamics between body, mind, and breath for themselves. This is an inherently creative process, giving students the confidence to become masters of their own mats. In her experience this is not only holistically beneficial, it is spiritually connective, bringing an abundance of gratitude and love to anyone who chooses to practice
Yoga inversions are believed to have incredible health benefits including: strengthening muscles, boosting circulation and calming the mind. During this dynamic 2-hour workshop we will dissect and explore some impressive postures. Headstands, forearm stands and handstands have been known to intimidate aspiring yogis but do not be alarmed. We believe that these postures should be accessible to all, regardless of age and experience. Alignment tips and tricks will show you just how straightforward these postures can be. By arming you with a series of preparatory postures and modifications you will gain the confidence you need to take flight. During this workshop, tumbles and laughter are guaranteed. It’s a great way to challenge yourself, leap out of your comfort zone and have a lot of fun along the way
ACRO YOGA FOR BEGINNERS!
Incorporating acrobatics and elements of Thai massage, acro yoga is partner work at its best. A fluid and graceful practice, it is a dance between beings that is beautiful to behold. Participants will firstly tune into themselves and the natural rhythms of their own bodies before progressing to partner or group work. Triads are the most common set up in an acro yoga class. One person lifts another while the third person ensures safety. During this workshop you will learn a number of acrobatic techniques that challenge the body whilst utilising the healing properties of massage. This is both a playful and profound experience as the joy of physical connection meets the deeper aspects of yoga practice.
THAI YOGA MASSAGE:
If indulgence and relaxation is calling, this workshop is for you. Thai Yoga Massage is a delicious form of bodywork that combines yogic stretching with the physical pressure points of Chinese acupuncture and Ayurveda. It is proven to detoxify the body, boost the immune system and fight diseases. It has also been known to lower blood pressure and reduce anxiety. In this light, playful workshop partners will learn basic techniques and sequences. Each participant will have a chance to give and receive. All will experience the healing and nourishing power of touch. Thai yoga massage takes place on the ground. Although no previous experience is required, participants need to be able to get up and down with ease
Each workshop is 2-hours. The price is $40 per workshop or the package price is $110.
