Join Maria Williquette in beautiful Portland, Oregon for a deeply nourishing and inspiring weekend of yoga asana practice, breath work, meditation, dharma talks, and amazing community. Come with an open mind and be prepared not only to dig deep into your yoga practice, but also explore what it means to be you, to be human in today’s culture, and how to create a calmer, safer, and more resonant life. Maria seamlessly melds her two professions of yoga teaching and psychotherapy to present a rich array of yogic material in a fresh and engaging way. All levels of yoga experience are warmly welcome; all you need is curiosity and a willingness to grow. For those of you living in Portland, how lucky you are to experience all the benefits of a yoga retreat without needing to leave your amazing city…no planning, packing or expensive lodging! For Maria’s students in Seattle and elsewhere, Portland is an incredible city to explore and what a good reason for you to visit. You are going to LOVE Sellwood Yoga – it is a beautiful studio and a very special place. The weekend will include lots of time for yoga, but also plenty of free time to enjoy the weekend in Portland.
Instructor — Maria Williquette
Maria Williquette is a yoga teacher and psychotherapist who has just relocated to Portland from Seattle. She has been teaching yoga with an emphasis on using yoga therapeutically for 9 years and she frequently teaches workshops about using yoga as a tool for healing. Maria also leads 3 yoga retreats annually, 2 in the Pacific Northwest and a 10 day yoga retreat in beautiful Goa, India.
Although more days than not Maria can be found practicing and teaching yoga, she is also an avid gardener, reader, hiker, and world traveler. While traveling, Maria has studied yoga in places as diverse as Argentina, South Africa, India, and Nepal and has completed two 200 hr yoga teacher trainings and extensive ongoing education (currently enrolled in a 500 hr training). Maria holds a Master’s Degree in counseling psychology and had a private practice in Seattle. Now she is taking some time off from therapy to enjoy being a new mom! It is Maria’s passion to combine the wisdom of yoga with the study of psychology to create a therapeutic and deeply healing yoga practice.
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.
