Maria Filippone‘s love and appreciation of the outdoors and a reverence for nature and life was instilled at an early age in her hometown of Vancouver.

Now, many years, trainings and immersions later, she is certified as a Yoga instructor, Pilates Teacher and Yoga Thai Massage Therapist.
Today, Maria’s group classes and private lessons are a blend of these three incredibly powerful and transformational offerings. She enjoys creating playlists from a wide variety of music, often including mantras and chants to deepen & enhance the experience.

She bows deeply to her many gifted teachers who continue to inspire her life, personal practice, and teaching. To name just a few: Janet Stone, Eckhart Tolle, and Dr. Joe Dispenza.
