Maxine's Personal Journey...

MaxineAfter years of struggling with chronic health issues and not finding the necessary improvements through more traditional avenues, Maxine desired something that would address not only the physical aspects of her health and well-being but also the emotional components.  That is when she first experienced Yoga.  From the beginning it was helpful and as she continued to practice Yoga, her endocrine system imbalances and digestive system limitations began to dissipate as did her symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome.  Yoga not only improved her health but also was the avenue that brought clarity and calmness to Maxine’s mind as well as allowed her to find more joy and happiness in the daily moments of life.  Because of the healing that Yoga brought on all levels – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual -- Maxine wanted to share this wonderful experience of Yoga with others.  It is her belief that Yoga can bring healing and wholeness into the lives of all practitioners.

Maxine brings an atmosphere of lightheartedness to each class as she offers skilled attention to proper alignment and breathing.  She agrees with one of her teachers, Amy Weintraub, when she said, “We are not creating a synchronized Yoga team.  You are forming a new and healthier relationship with your body and mind.  You have total permission to make this practice uniquely yours.”  It is Maxine’s  desire that as her students experience Yoga they begin to see that life is not solely about getting to a certain destination but about being present in each moment, each experience along the way and being gracious and loving toward themselves on the journey. 

Now in her 17th year of practice and her 12th year of teaching, Maxine is a Certified Yoga Therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapists, a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance, a member of Integral Yoga Teachers Association, a LifeForce Yoga Teacher, and an iRest Yoga Nidra Teacher, equipping her with specific training and skills to work with individuals who experience depression, anxiety and emotional imbalances. Additionally, she holds a degree in spiritual studies and incorporates knowledge from her years of experience as a personal trainer into her Yoga classes.
