​You are worthy as you are

Thanks for subscribing!

Working hard to achieve goals was second nature during my professional dance career in Hollywood, which started in 2009.
Then I realized being in the spotlight with a competitive mindset in the entertainment industry would never make me happy in a sustainable way.
Yoga helped me find self love and acceptance​.

Hi, I’m happy to have you visiting my website!
I am a Japanese Yoga teacher based in LA. I had a great career being a professional dancer and had toured with Taylor Swift, Madonna, Britney Spears and more.
I had a strong goal setting mindset in my 20’s only to realize that chasing “what’s next big thing” won’t fulfill my soul.

I started practicing yoga in 2012 and yoga helped me physically and mentally. It helped me find self love and self acceptance. I don’t need to be a perfect achiever to be worthy of love.

Now this is my passion to share the practice of yoga with others. 
I spent more than 700hours of Yoga teacher training in Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin and Rocket yoga.
Inclusivity is vital to my teaching. Let’s find home to our bodies and unite with the divine.

"Oh Maria! What would I do without her class?! Maria is such a beautiful human inside and out. Her yoga classes make my soul feel nourished and held. Finding a teacher like her is a true rarity. She is a godsend to my life! I love that she respects the traditions of yoga & goes deep with you on the philosophy. I don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t have her around- truly blessed to be able to learn from such an amazing, kind, talented soul! "
