PPY Yoga Teacher
Maria Bessette, 200 Hour Certified. Maria has practiced yoga consistently for 9 years and recently earned her certification from Providence Power Yoga. Through her teaching, Maria seeks to aid students in cultivating playful, curious observation of their physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies. She believes that yoga is the practice of lovingly yoking together the opposites of life. With this mentality, she hopes her class is a place where students can both challenge and nurture themselves with unconditional acceptance.
Maria teaches with a trauma-informed, sensitive approach that is welcoming for both new and seasoned yogis. With a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a background in counseling, Maria is actively deepening her training in order to make yoga practice accessible to people with mental illness, children, and individuals with special needs.
