Maggie is a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT), yoga teacher (E-RYT 500®), and holds her M.S. in Yoga Therapy from Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH). Growing up, she studied classical voice and dance and felt very familiar with the innate connection of body, mind, energy, and breath. In 2007, she found the practice of Reiki while living in Philadelphia and completed her first yoga teacher training in New Jersey.
She works to empower others into their own self-healing and believes in whole-person care. Through the lens of yoga, a custom plan of care is co-created to promote healing and well-being using techniques of yoga like physical movements, breathing practices, meditation, and more. Some conditions she has worked with include: Anxiety, Depression, Arthritis, Chronic Pain, Cancer, COPD, PTSD, Autoimmune Diseases, and various acute injuries.
While at MUIH, Maggie completed an internship at a Johns Hopkins Hospital offering yoga therapy in the Oncology and Acute Care departments. She also works as a yoga researcher and mentor. Her most recent work surveys the characteristics and occurrence of yoga therapy in clinical healthcare settings. It was presented at the 2019 MUIH Research Symposium and submitted to the 2019 Symposium on Yoga Research (SYR) at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health.
