Yoga Therapy Testimonials

Joan Lee

“Maria Mitea embodies a real mind, body and spirit connection in her yoga practice. She generously shares her deep understanding of how the breath, body, and mind should flow together from the very basic to advanced yoga positions. Classes are varied and provide just the right level of challenge for a broad range of yoga practitioners. During a yoga class, she will quietly spend the time with each student to provide additional instruction and knowledgeably adjusting as needed with the appreciation that each person’s practice is their own. Maria weaves insightful yoga philosophy into each practice guiding the power of your thoughts to a place of quiet reflection and well-being. I come away from her classes with my body feeling limber, refreshed and my mind rested. I would highly recommend taking yoga classes from Maria, you will be glad you did!”

” I started sciatica group sessions since February 2018. My lower back, shoulders, and legs feel stronger and more flexible. I don’t have any sciatica pain now. Maria is an expert on how to teach proper movement with breathing. Practicing breathing feels very good, especially at night when I cannot sleep.”

“I have been very fortunate to have had Maria as a Yoga teacher. I have COPD (breathing problems ) because Maria is insistent on proper breathing techniques during practice I have found my breathing has improved. Thank You, Maria,”

“I have attended several of Maria’s yoga classes and thoroughly enjoy them. Maria has a broad and deep knowledge of yoga. She is able to communicate calmly and clearly what she knows. She can speak to how the body works on a physiological, emotional and psychological level. More importantly, she is encouraging a nonjudgmental practice and makes you feel good about what you are doing. At the end of the class, I always feel calmer and more relaxed.”

“If you are looking for a whole new yoga experience try one of Maria’s classes. It is not a “one size” fits all practice. She is very knowledgeable and tailors the program to your abilities. Personally, I am constantly dealing with shoulder, neck and hip issues that originate from my curling, golf, computer time and stress levels. I find this is a great addition to my other supports to keep me active and pain-free.”

Liz Racine

“I have been practicing yoga for about 15 years. I have taken classes with Maria for the past couple of years and have learned a great deal. She is a very knowledgeable and skilled teacher, who exemplifies yogic philosophy. She is very careful about making sure her students are aligned correctly so that there is no risk of injury. Her classes flow well and provide an excellent challenge in a safe way. I highly recommend Maria as a yoga teacher!”
