Maria Williquette has long been involved in the yoga community of Seattle, with teaching as her primary emphasis since 2009 and she is excited to be teaching at Aditi. Although more days than not Maria can be found practicing and teaching yoga, she is also an avid gardener, cyclist, reader, hiker, and world traveler. While traveling, Maria has studied yoga in places as diverse as Argentina, South Africa, India, and Nepal. Maria has completed two 200 hr yoga teacher trainings and specializes in using yoga as a therapeutic and healing modality.
As a teacher, Maria embodies depth and connection; joy and creativity. She will certainly arrive to class with a smile and she delights in connecting with every student who attends class with her. Both on and off the mat, Maria looks to each moment of each day for opportunities to learn and to practice gratitude. Maria is also a Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice near Greenlake. She works with families, couples, and individuals using a holistic and strengths-based approach to growth. It is Maria’s passion to combine the wisdom of yoga with the study of psychology to create deep healing.
