Yoga Therapy Testimonials

Delina MacDonald

Maria is truly amazing and so knowledgeable. She was recommended by my naturopath and I couldn’t be happier. I have never felt so welcomed and relaxed. Her foot reflexology is absolute heaven. I started with private sessions which were so very helpful and Maria’s touch was just what I needed. I look forward to my yoga journey with Health Yoga!

I took Yoga Therapy for sciatica with Maria, and she suggested that I would benefit from a sciatica group class. Currently, I attend her Monday yoga for sciatica and I am thrilled with the results in just weeks. My pain has diminished greatly and I would highly recommend these classes to anyone who wants to experience a life without pain.

Maria is very caring as well as gentle with her yoga therapy patients. I myself feel very blissful and relaxed after her treatments. I believe anyone who goes to Maria for yoga therapy will feel happy they did. Maria has a positive warm-hearted genuine way of treating people.

I met Maria over 3 years ago when she started doing yoga classes at the Y!! I immediately loved her classes and attended them as often as possible!! Not only was she a creative and inspired instructor….she was a very nice lady as well! She kept her eye on everyone in the class and offered suggestions on poses so students got the most from their practice which I appreciated. A year ago Maria opened her own yoga studio on Bath Rd and I am enjoying the cozy warm atmosphere that she has created there now. Having her own studio has allowed her to spread her wings and offer a great variety of classes as well as yoga therapy, reflexology, etc. Maria is very perceptive and sees what is going on in the body very quickly. Her great hands can soothe the aches and stiffness so well. I have always felt very fortunate to have met Maria!!❣

I have taken yoga classes and been to reflexology sessions with Maria and highly recommend both. I found Maria to be a very kind, encouraging, and knowledgeable yoga teacher; she gave helpful feedback and offered modifications that enabled me to go at my own level. I also found the reflexology sessions to be very gentle and soothing as well as an interesting opportunity to learn about the body; I really enjoyed going to repeat sessions.

I have recently started to work with Maria at HealthYoga to help with my fibromyalgia and to rebalance my body after open-heart surgery. I am delighted to write this review based on my experience with Maria. Not only is she immensely qualified, but Maria also provides an integrated approach to yoga and provides a “whole “ body and life program designed specifically for each student ‘s needs In only a couple of months, I am seeing the benefits of Maria ‘s knowledge and support and I highly recommend HealthYoga to anyone looking for a professional and authentic teacher in a warm and relaxing atmosphere.

I recently was gifted a reflexology treatment with Maria, it was such a beautiful experience I felt compelled to give this testimonial. Maria is a gifted healer!

“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.”

Karen Green

“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,”

Janice Minard

“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.”

“Maria’s dedication to the study of yoga is brought forward to share with others in her class. She is attentive to your well-being, physically and therapeutically. I find the atmosphere calming and relaxing. Maria has helped me in many ways. I have become more aware of looking within myself for peace and strength.”
