Maria Gorham, E-RYT 200 (RYT 500)

Teacher Trainer & Owner, Hot Yoga Wellington

As co-owner of the successful Hot Yoga Wellington studios in New Zealand, Maria will be the lead trainer in this Teacher Training for 2016, she shares her in-depth knowledge of effective teaching methods, allowing the individual to firstly facilitate their own learning and then have the skills and abilities to pass this onto others. Having done her initial 200hrs training in Wellington, she then went on to train a further 300hrs in India in 2014 and was back there again this year. Maria is passionate about yoga and all it offers physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally.

Maria’s vocational calling to co-own Hot Yoga Wellington weaves together three major career paths she has experienced along her Journey.

In the past, Maria has pursued education, training and consultancy work while simultaneously working in the world of fitness, health and well-being. She has always believed in the strong correlation between body, mind and spirit and now integrates her work and life philosophy at the studio.

Maria is an accredited Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) practitioner and has used this training to design, develop and deliver workshops that are meaningful and in a variety of self-growth contexts.

She has assisted with teacher trainings at both Wellington Hot Yoga and Auckland Hot Yoga. This time around she is co-leading, presenting the Yin sessions and assisting Sally.

Angela’s passion for her own practice is aligned hand in hand with her passion for Hot Yoga Wellington and the committee at the Studio. She’s excited to again have the opportunity to be part of teacher training and assisting others who are curious about all that involves.
