Maggie is a yoga teacher based out of Oakland, CA. She finds the magic of yoga in quieting the chatter of the mind in order to be fully in the present. Maggie blends Katonah Yoga with other styles of yoga and movement practices to inspire students to find freedom in their body and mind. She taps into source by experiencing the world around her and connecting to Great Nature. Maggie teaches what she knows and learns about what she doesn’t. Join Maggie for playful imagery, nurturing asana, and tools to become more well-rounded on and off the mat.
Maggie is invested in OWC to support radical healing by way of the implicit and imagination. She believes wholeheartedly that every individual is whole and complete and enough just as they are and she teaches to offer that reminder to her students. Maggie is grateful to be a piece of this community and for the creation of OWC as an accessible platform for connection and a shifting of the tides.
Q + A
What brings you joy?
"For me, joy is technical. It’s all about right place, right time. It’s a feeling that is fleeting because it’s all about full presence with the way things are in a certain moment. To be in joy is to enjoy. This feeling typically arises when I’m walking in nature on a sunny day, cooking or baking a new recipe, shaking my body around, talking to strangers in unexpected places, during my weekly Taoism class, and eating snacks. The feeling is always even sweeter if I get to share the experience with the people in my life I love and my dog daughter, Clementine."
Q + A
What have you been curious about recently?
"I am curious about how to make the mundane magical. All we have is our time, so I have been playing with the question of what it means to spend time well lately. With regards to my teaching, I’ve been really exploring the many different ways to articulate esoteric dialogue."
