Introduction: I am a NYC based instructor with an E-RYT 500-hour Certification from Yoga Works and extensive experience teaching private, group and corporate sessions. I lead alignment-based flow classes infused with core strength, deep stretching and breath awareness. It's a relatable, fun and always challenging style of yoga! I love to share my lifelong passion for yoga and its many benefits with my students. I enjoy working with people of various ages and abilities from teenagers to pregnant women and older adults. I offer modifications to accommodate different levels of strength and flexibility with the use of hands-on adjustments and props. Through regular practice I will guide you to find more balance, strength, relaxation and discover the highest version of yourself. My intention is to create an empowering and joyful experience so you can step off the mat feeling energized and rejuvenated.

It was a pleasure to work with Maria-Stefania! As a Hotel Concierge, she was very easy to work with. She was hugely accommodating to my guests needs and very professional. Most importantly, she is very quick to respond which is much appreciated when we need quick updates for our guests. I will definitely recommend Maria for future personal yoga instruction requests.

Maria is a great teacher and we felt extremely relaxed after her class. Her positive energy and clear instructions made the class an awesome experience for all of us and i would highly recommend her.

This is my first time working with a yoga instructor individually and I much prefer it to a class lesson. It feels more personable and tailored to my specific needs. Plus I don't feel I have to compete with all the other more 'bendy' people in a class! Maria has a lovely warm personality and manages to make the lesson both deeply relaxing and effective at the same time. I definitely feel I've had a good work out afterwards but it was also enjoyable. It also gives me tips for my own yoga practice each morning which stops me getting into a rut.

Maria has been my yoga instructor for three months in New York. She has been phenomenal teaching me yoga from the ground-up, patiently supporting my growth and learning along the way. I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience thus far, and highly recommend Maria as an exceptional yoga instructor. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed Maria’s yoga classes, and they are truly the highlight of my week. She provides excellent guidance and brings positive energy to every class, which positively impacts the rest of my day. Every class is tailored to the needs, and mood, of the attendees, and Maria teaches such a variety of postures and sequences that each class feels fresh; having fun through the vinyasa flow, or exploring more technical territory. Maria eloquently provides guidance on yoga’s intricacies, which certainly helps attendees improve their postures, and I leave each class feeling I’ve progressed and learnt from the experience. From day one Maria has been very welcoming, and the flow she teaches is very accessible for a variety of skill-levels; with pupils ranging from beginners and seasoned experts.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Prices depend on the length of the session which can range from 45 min, 60 min, 90 min to 120 min. Another factor is the location and the time you chose for the session. Please contact me directly via phone or text to discuss further details.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to set up a phone call prior to the initial session to get a chance to chat in real time. It is the first step towards getting to know each other. We will go over any questions or concerns you may have. In order to plan a class that will serve perfectly your individual needs, it is important to hear about any past or current injuries, your yoga or other fitness experience, your goals, your lifestyle. You can even share your music preferences so I can curate a play list that will inspire you!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am an E-RYT 500 which means Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher 500 Hours of Training. I received my Certification from YogaWorks NYC in 2008. Advanced Certifications and Trainings -Anatomy & Biomechanics -Pre- Natal & Post-Natal Yoga -Restorative -Kids Yoga
