Mariah discovered her first yoga class over 20 years ago as a teenager and enjoyed the body, mind, spirit wholeness it brought into her life and felt a spiritual and healing energy when moving her body. After a back injury in 1997, which caused her constant chronic pain, Mariah decided it was a time for change and made body health and wellness her profession of passion. She received her first certification as a fitness trainer in 2004, and then in 2006 she received her certification as an aesthetician and massage therapist. Mariah continues to challenge herself and has received several certifications including Oriental Studies, Level 1 Olympic Weightlifting, and Level 1 Crossfit certifications.
Mariah found that Yoga incorporates all of what she’s most passionate about, growing spiritually, helping others, and taking care of our body and mind so that we can live a long and energetic life. Seeking a deeper practice Mariah received her Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) Certification in early 2016 and she is excited and dedicated to share the joy she has found in life and in yoga with others. Mariah has spent many years on a path of healing, and as she continues to grow, and move forward, she is grateful to her teachers, spiritual advisors, mentors, family and friends. She is determined to always remain a student and continue to learn from those around her and ultimately the teacher that lies within.
