MAXINE BONUS – TEACHER PROFILE
Maxine has been practising yoga since 2008, when she initially came to yoga as a pro-active approach to injury prevention while engaging in other activities such as cycling and long distance running. Her journey began with the practice of Ashtanga Yoga. A year later she was introduced to Vinyasa Flow and immediately connected with this style where asanas are connected through the breath for a transformative and balancing effect.
Maxine is a dedicated practioner and faithful student of The Ananta Yoga Studios and acknowledges the organic attainment of a strong body and inner peace from a consistent practice. Under the guidance of The Ananta Yoga Studios founder and lead instructor Liz Richards, Maxine has seen her own practice evolve steadily. This has been further enhanced through regular attendance at weekend workshops with David Curtis of Vinyasa Yoga Dublin at
The Ananta Yoga Studios. Maxine has recently completed a 200hr Vinyasa teacher training at the birthplace of yoga in Rishikesh, India at the Vinyasa yoga school there.
Eager to pass on and share the positive benefits of yoga practice with the younger generation, via a fun filled creative yet intelligent approach Maxine undertook Yoga Ed’s Professional Institute Foundations 1 & 2, Teaching Kids & Teens Yoga. She teaches classes for kids & teens including classes for kids and pre-teens with physical disabilties at The Ananta Yoga Studios. To further enhance her children’s yoga training and to ensure that yoga is available to each and
every child, Maxine has become a certified Therapeutic yoga teacher for children with additional needs including ASD, ADD/ADHD, DCD, CP, Down Syndrome, SPD and children with Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties and is looking forward to sharing the skills she has acquired in this training in private and group classes in the near future.
Maxine is also a wife and mum to two grown up daughters and has introduced yoga to all the family. She loves to travel and be in the outdoors and enjoy quality time with friends and family.
