Mama, teacher, speaker, strategist, and mentor Maria Salvatore (E-500RYT,) has been teaching yoga and meditation for years, and has been studying with master yoga teachers since 2002. Maria offers yoga and meditation as a way to approach our world with realistic reverence and gratitude. Her classes are a masterful, candid blend of artful alignment and attention cues for your body, mind, and heart.
From local yoga studios to the beautiful lawn at Central Park, Maria is honored to offer larger-scale experiences of yoga and meditation, but her true service is in shifting awareness within the smallest interactions, one person at a time. Currently, Maria teaches weekly and monthly classes in New Jersey and New York and offers retreats, workshops, and trainings.
Maria also serves on two boards; Kula for Karma, a non-profit organization which brings therapeutic yoga to populations struggling with trauma and addiction, as well as the advisory board for the Graf Center for Integrative Medicine at Englewood Hospital.
In addition to her yoga practice and philanthropic work, Maria is a Usui Reiki Practitioner Level 1, 11, and master.
“My primary intention is to help people learn to heal themselves.”
