​Dance was my first love

Maria Wada is a professional dancer and yoga practitioner/teacher based in Los Angeles, California.

She is Nike Well Collective Global trainer and is represented by Bloc Talent Agency LA for dance, commercial, film.

In 2009 she got her first artist visa and same year she auditioned for Beyonce’s MTV Video Music Awards performance and that became her first job in the US.

Maria moved to Los Angeles in 2010 to pursue her career as a dancer and she has worked and toured with numerous artists such as Madonna, Taylor Swift, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Jason Derulo and more.

She has performed in numerous TV shows and Awards shows including Superbowl Half Time Show, MTV Video Music Awards, Grammy Awards, American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, Kids Choice Awards, American Idol, The Voice, America’s Got Talent, X factor and more.

Being a dancer led her to yoga practice in 2012. Yoga has helped her both physically and mentally. She found self love and acceptance through Yoga and it became her passion to share that with others. She did 200 hour Hatha/Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training with Lindsay Dombrowski and Julia Planine-Troiani in 2018 and she completed 300 hour Advanced Vinyasa YTT in Goa, India in 2022. She also practices various styles of yoga and completed 200 hour Rocket YTT as well as 60 hour Yin YTT with Meredith M and Tiffany K.

Teaching and connecting with people through yoga gives joy and purpose to her life. With 15 years of experience teaching dance and movements, she has an understanding of the physical body. She provides a safe space for everyone in all levels to practice safely and effectively. "Inclusivity" is vital to her teaching. She wishes more people would practice yoga beyond the poses.
