Maureen McAllister

Describe yourself in three words: Adventurous, Playful, Empathetic
Why do you teach Yoga? Yoga came to me at a low point in my life, picked me up, brushed me off, and taught me how to see the light in myself and others again. I hope to impart this healing energy and practice to others, so that they too can don their rose-tinted glasses.
Something surprising about you: My greatest dream is to become an astronaut, even though I’m terrified of heights.
What inspires you? Music, art, philosophy, poetry, literature, science, nature, astronomy, the ocean, great acts of love, the human experience, everything to some extent.
What's the scariest thing on your bucket list? Scuba diving with great white sharks… outside of the cage!
Where did you get your training/certifications? I will be receiving my 200-hr certification from Thrive Yoga in December of 2016 and am certified in Reiki I & II.
Maureen loves to use her science and psychology background to enhance the more esoteric components of yogic practice. Everyone is given the freedom to explore their individual inner and outer worlds on the mat, while enjoying a peaceful community atmosphere in a safe space. Classes feature unique and creative sequences with focus upon the breath and meditation to promote stress relief, balance, and tranquility in mind, body, and spirit.

Why do you teach?

I have been practicing yoga since the age of 7. It's something that I have always fallen back to, no matter where I find myself in life. My goal as a teacher is to guide others, and encourage them to discover their own personal connection to yoga. I want our practice together to elevate my student’s lives and wellbeing - like it has done for me.

What is something surprising about you?

I am a singer-songwriter, it's one of my soul’s passions. Don’t be surprised if I end our session with a soothing melody!

What inspires you?

Music and nature inspire me, both energetically and emotionally.

What's the scariest thing on your bucket list?

Skydiving is certainly up there! One day I'll finally have the courage to cross that one off my list.

Where did you get your training/certification?

Thrive Yoga 200 YTT. I am continuing my training with their 300-Hour Program. It has been such an inspiring experience I never want to stop learning!
