What to expect in a class with Maeve


In addition to syncing movement with breath, students are challenged to identify and carry an intention with them as they move through each pose. By laying down a foundation for emotional release and personal development, Maeve guides her students in their journey toward accepting how each day is a work in progress…on and off the mat.
