About Maree Taylor @ YogaHeart
I have always believed that our greatest gift as human beings is the incredible opportunity we have to connect /reconnect with our Divine Essence and open our hearts to love in its purest form. I believe that joyful living is a result of an open heart, & Yoga allows us to embrace that.
I began practicing Iyengar Yoga, under Judith Van
when I was living in Cornwall, UK. My travels led me to
Rishikesh in India, where I did an intensive yoga course
On returning to Australia I continued my yoga practice at Yoga in Daily Life, Brisbane and deepened my interest in yoga through retreats and workshops. I undertook my Yoga teacher training with Carrie-Anne Fields of My Health Yoga, Broadbeach, and began teaching in 2006. I completed my PreNatal Yoga Teacher training under Janice Clarfield of Urban Yoga, Vancouver, in Brisbane in 2008. In recent years I have attended workshops and intensives with international yoga teachers John Friend (Anusara Yoga), Donna Farhi , and Narelle-Carter Quinlan. I have participated in numerous workshops around vinyasa yoga sequencing, pranayama, meditation and yoga therapy. In 2013, I completed a 12 month intensive/practicum Yoga Teacher Training for Scolisois and Back Carewith Narelle Carter-Quinlan (Embodied Terrain), which has deepened my understanding of embodied anatomy, and changed the way I practice and teach yoga. While our yoga practice predominantly focuses on the physical body it is appreciating and experiencing the body as a complete organism that creates the space and change we are seeking. This training has honed my skill in observing functional anatomy and designing individual programs for clients including those living with scoliosis.
I have recently completed my Masters in Health Science and have begun my journey towards being accredited as a Yoga Therapist. I am perpetually amazed by the celestial design of our bodies, and the positive impact yoga has in creating balance and unity in our lives.Yoga is my passion and I hope that together we can create a yoga community in Stanthorpe that connects us all in the gorgeous web of joyful living.
