TEAM BIO

MARIA FILIPPONE

TEACHER

Born and raised in beautiful, Vancouver, B.C. Maria’s love and appreciation of the outdoors and a reverence for nature and life was instilled at an early age.  Motivated and moved by music and movement, her teaching path began when she was 15 years old, assisting mentor Maureen Wilson,  flipping records and offering hands on adjustments in a packed high impact aerobics classes.  Now, many years, trainings and immersions later, she is certified as a Yoga instructor, Pilates Teacher and Yoga Thai Massage Therapist.
Today, Maria’s group classes and private lessons are a blend of these three incredibly powerful and transformational offerings. She enjoys creating playlists from a wide variety of music, often including mantras and chants to deepen & enhance the experience. Based in Victoria, BC, Maria  shares her passions with the local community, and also travels the world with workshops and unique offerings.  She bows deeply to her many gifted teachers who continue to inspire her life, personal practice, and teaching. To name just  a few… Janet Stone, Eckhart Tolle, and  Dr. Joe Dispenza.
A note from Maria:
BRITISH DJ AND COMPOSER George Evelyn ( a.k.a – Nightmares on Wax ) says it beautifully in his latest track, “Shape the Future”  …” EMBRACE THE MOMENT,  YOU’VE REALLY GOT TO KNOW THAT SOMETHING’S YOU, NO NEED TO HIDE, TAKE A RIDE TO YOUR SOUL.  
 
I welcome you to step onto your mat, wherever you are, however you feel, and embark on the magical journey to your soul.
