Hello I am Maria
Helping people to feel the joy of a quiet mind
I run an online yoga and meditation school based in Geneva, Switzerland. We are committed to share joy and well-being to the world.
Being. That's enough.
The way to love and accept yourself without conditions
I remember feeling free as a small child. As soon as school started, I slowly started to believe that I was not enough. If I got good grades and did what it was supposed to do, I would be a "good girl" and be rewarded. So, I spent the rest of my life studying, being a "good girl" and being eager to learn as much as possible about life. One day someone told me that "being is enough" and that I should be looking for wisdom rather than knowledge. The sage said: "You gain knowledge in school and from reading books, but wisdom is gained through contemplation and self-discovery".
From an academic researcher specializing in environmental sustainability to a yoga and meditation disciple. Today, I am driven by a strong desire to spread the philosophy and art of living of yoga.
My work's purpose is to inspire others to discover the peace and joy that come from training their mind, body and breath.
Words I live by
"Success: To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because we have lived."
