My name is Maria, and I help creative people embody their wisdom and power.

As an artist and Tantra Yoga teacher, I explore the intersection of creativity, sexuality and healing by combining movement, meditation, art-making and nutrition. I am a 500-hour Registered teacher with a BFA in Studio Art from Appalachian State University, and I have taught, published and exhibited work nationally.

I am thrilled by the collaborative process, and my work explores the integration of ideas in order to establish more dynamic and productive relationships - individually, socially and environmentally. Currently, I am the Director at Groove Forward and a Teacher Trainer with Vira Bhava Yoga School.


β€œMaria’s methodology is a true representation of her passions & her gifts. In our work together I was able to cultivate a stronger connection between my mind & my body, and unearth a powerful vision for myself as a creator. As a result, I am infinitely more grounded, not just in my personal practice, but on my journey to self actualization.”
