Maryanne is a Miami bred yogini with a deep passion for living and sharing yoga. In college, she studied Psychology and has always been fascinated with the mind/body connection. She has practiced with teachers all over the East and West Coast and makes time to continue her education on and off the mat. Her style is Ashtanga based with flares of different styles for a well rounded flow. Maryanne believes yoga is more than shapes we take with the body, and even so, more than just breathing. On the mat, she will remind you to use your physical practice as body therapy and off the mat to use your practice to help you move gracefully with the eb and flow of our everyday lives.
Maryanne Abdulhadi instructs the following:
Southern Stretch is a restorative practice that targets tightness in your body and tension in your mind. It is a refreshing way to enhance your flexibility and create a well-rounded daily practice. You will use props such as blocks, bolsters and blankets to support your practice and access the nooks and crannies of your body. The effect is that you leave class feeling more open, more content, and more possibility in your whole being.
