Maricarmen’s teaching practice is based on the Zen philosophy of keeping the open mind of a beginner. With over 20 years of study and 15 years of teaching, she has been inspired and guided by her Iyengar, Jivamukti, Prajna, and Ashtanga mentors. Her Vinyasa flow classes are a reflection of her commitment to remain awake, curious, and self aware in one’s own practice. In the creative design of each class, students are encouraged and supported to tap into their power, intuition and true potential with grace. She is eternally grateful to her teachers and continues her advanced studies in philosophy, asana and pranayama. She lives her yoga with her husband and three beautiful boys in Austin, TX.
