Do you ever find that you feel pain, limited mobility and tightness in your body?
The fascia, a series of connective tissue within our bodies, encasing every organ, bone, nerve, muscle and blood vessel is deeply sensitive and after periods of stress, injury and overwork, can become aggravated, creating that ‘tight’ sensations and pain.
In Maureen’s two hour workshop you will discover the healing practice of myofascial release, improving the stretch reflex of muscles, lymphatic circulation and blood oxygen levels, furthermore relaxing contracted fascia.
You will learn to combine roll and release techniques through the use of tennis balls and yoga props with the long held poses associated with Yin.
Suitable for anyone, yoga experience is not required. You will leave relaxed and mobile, with a restored body and mind.
Please bring a yoga mat and a towel.
– Tennis balls and yoga blocks will be provided bring your own if you prefer.

From her early adult life, Maureen has always had a fascination and keen interest in exploring spiritual enrichment, eastern culture and philosophies.
In her early twenties, Maureen studied a Traditional Japanese Martial Art that led to many trips to Japan to immerse herself in tutelage from the Grandmaster Masaaki Hatsumi Sensei. This led to 15 years of study and introduction to Traditional Chinese Medicine, Reiki, Shiatsu and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). Teaching was a natural progression and she operated a studio in Surry Hills for 10 years.
After having children she continued her love of movement and staying fit but felt “something was missing.” Only attending various yoga classes spasmodically in the last ten years, led to a more regular practice after becoming injured with back and knee issues. Hatha and Restorative yoga were her predominant styles of yoga classes, until being introduced to Hot Vinyasa and Yin which really cemented her love and fascination of all things yoga. After reading The Path of the Yoga Sutras, a practical guide to the core of yoga, written by Nicolai Bachman, it ignited a curiosity to continue learning and “dive down the rabbit hole”.
This led to completing a 420hr, Level 1 Teacher Training at Qi Yoga, Sydney under the tutelage of Mark O’Brien and Joan Miller and 50hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Dr Truth Robinson, Yin Living, Manly. 2021 will be filled with further study, commencing with Five Element Theory Open Lecture Series with Yolande Hyde over the next couple of months and further Yin Yoga Teacher Training.
Maureen believes in supporting her students in a holistic manner and encouraging them to be authentic to themselves and following their own journey .
