Being from a small town in southern Brazil, Mai was not exposed to yoga until arriving in Hawaii, her first experience was a 7am heated hatha practice in 2012. Right after class she felt invigorated, and couldn’t wait to go back. A few years later, she decided to do her first teacher training at Sun Yoga Hawaii, and really fell in love with the calmness yoga embraces as a life style. Loving to teach, she deepened her knowledge at Sun Yoga with a Vinyasa, Children and Senior Yoga Trainings. Continuing her education, in 2018 she completed a 500hrs teacher training with Rupali Embry of ShantiGirl Yoga Hawaii School, one of Hawaii’s first yoga studio owners. Joining Mai’s class, you’ll experience a blend of pranayama, asanas, followed by a deep relaxation, a sweaty, sweet practice. Maiara loves to see her students getting in tune with their particular and vast energies, allowing experiences on the yoga mat to be taken out into the real world.
