Hello and welcome to ‘A way to live well”
My name is Ana Maria, I am a yoga teacher, massage therapist, podcaster and nutritional advisor.
I am just an average human who has a slight obsession with all things yoga, food and body work. Why? Because all of these things have changed my life for the better and made me into the person I am today. That is why I am passionate about inspiring, motivating and helping you to discover a way to live well for yourself.
I am all for helping you create a life that YOU LOVE, and I am sure that with a little support you can make it happen.
I am a fully qualified 200hr (and then some) yoga teacher, Therapeutic body worker with a special interest in deep tissue and myofascial work (CTHA) (ITEC) (City and Guild) (Neal’s Yard) and a nutritional advisor.
What it's all about!
Massage is a powerful treatment, it has the power to relax, relieve and re-energise the body.
My aim is to create a safe and supportive space for you to relax, restore and allow the body to come into a self healing state through a strong and calming style of treatment.
I have trained in many disciplines of treatment; Myofascial release,
Indian head massage,
and I draw from all of these in order to tailor a treatment to your needs. A consultation and postural analysis is included as a part of your first treatment.
To become strong through ease, to build flexibility with awareness, to find balance and energy in the pause between doing and being. To me asana practice becomes the journey to self enquiry, self awareness and strength of focus. The quality of our breath and the level of our presence allows us to tap into the energy and healing potential of Yoga.
It is a serious business the task of working on oneself, but we should never be taking ourselves too seriously in the process.
Laughter and play are perhaps the most important ingredient in the recipe for a life lived well.
I have trained with world renowned teachers Simon Borg-Olivier,Bianca Machliss, Anna Ashby and Jo phee.
I am so grateful to my most knowledgeable teachers.
