Maria loves making yoga fun and relevant, particularly for people who think they won’t like it. Story telling forms a big part of her children’s yoga classes, whether using well-known picture books, improvising stories with the children or using her own yoga story picture book.
Maria’s two whimsical relaxation books have helped children and their grown-ups find calm at bedtime, when managing big emotions or at the end of yoga classes. Her irresistible yoga book Once Upon a Time, You… inspires children to get moving and includes positive affirmations and breathing techniques. It is available as a mat yoga and chair yoga edition, and allows children to choose their main character and what will happen next.
Maria teaches adults and children in and around Hertfordshire and is a member of the British Wheel of Yoga. She is on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook @boxmooryoga
Maria’s yoga and story telling sessions for children will be running in both Ware and Hertford during the festival.
