About Maria Santoferraro, E-RYT 500

Maria spent the past 25 years ravaging her body in the crazy corporate world. Needing a detox from an unhealthy blackberry addiction, boatloads of stress, and an aching back, she sought out a healthier lifestyle and luckily found her physical and spiritual release through the practice of yoga.


Today she is living a balanced and blissful life, teaching yoga, leading international workshops and retreats, sharing yoga inspiration on the Daily Downward Dog, creating meditation videos for Hang 10 Meditation, and also contributing her writing to MindBodyGreen, Elephant Journal, Intent, Yoganonymous, and DoYouYoga.


Her playful, heart-opening teaching combines meditation, breath, alignment, and asana in a blend of Hatha and Vinyasa style yoga that encourages students to quiet their minds, let go, and reconnect to their bodies and breath. Maria incorporates uplifting class themes, music, poetry, laughter, and the spiritual teachings of yoga to create a peaceful environment where students can experience a deep sense of calm and fill up with joy. In 2011 she was able to combine two of her greatest passions – yoga and the beach – to start her summer beach yoga classes on the beautiful shores of Lake Erie, Ohio, where she has shared yoga with hundreds of students.
