Maria Z
Anaheim, CA

This July, we recognize Maria as an inspiration to our community! Since joining Yoga Sol last October, she has dramatically advanced her practice, completing well over 100 classes, 2 workshops and continues to be curious about learning and reading more about the practice and traditions.

Maria tells us that she has always been interested in yoga. Her mother first introduced her to Paramahansa Yogananda when she was 12 years of age. Now Maria has introduced her daughter Lauren to the yoga world. Lauren comes to class with or without her mother. Maria has been doing yoga on and off for years, however, she tells us that she didn’t start LIVING yoga until she began with Yoga Sol eight months ago. Since joining Yoga Sol and making it a part of her daily life, she has seen great benefits, including: core strengthening, greater posture, greater inner strength and a stronger mental focus. In addition, her anxiety level has lowered with the meditative components of yoga. She enjoys ALL the teachers and staff at Yoga Sol. Maria share with us, “I feel a great sense of community and friendship each time I come to Yoga Sol. I am excited to be the Yogi of the month…what an honor!”

We salute Maria’s beautiful spirit and thank her for her contribution to our community!
