Maria’s passion is to build a body to mind connection, by taking into consideration all the potential puzzle pieces and putting them together in a whole person model. Maria prioritizes and takes the time to first learn a person’s needs, their story, concerns and understand their feelings. Then combine that with how a person moves to find the interlaced causes for a person’s experience. Maria uses an educational based approach to work together on why and how the pieces contribute to the experience in order to formulate a planned journey in achieving a person’s goals. Maria’s goal is to empower and build autonomy to move and feel good. Maria is fascinated by the impacts and interrelation of gut health, hormones and a person’s menstrual cycle with pelvic health.
