This class is taught by:

Maria Paula Quintana

Maria Paula's passion for Yoga began 12 years ago in Bogota, Colombia. While studying to be an actress, she sought an organic way to connect her mind and body - and fell in love with the ancient practice of yoga. She then moved to London to further pursue her passion in theater, and after three years, decided to travel to India in order to study yoga. In 2007, she lived in India for 6 months where she completed her first 200 hour Teacher Training Certification in Hatha Yoga in the heart of South India. She then moved to New York for six months and completed a yoga teacher training with Sri Dharma Mittra. Maria Paula then returned to Bogota where she taught yoga professionally for 5 years. Aware that the journey of Yoga is one of continual growth, she continued to travel to the US to study closely with teachers such as John Friend, Shiva Rea, Sharon Gannon and David Life. A year ago, Maria Paula received her certification in Anusara Yoga with BJ Galvan in Colombia. She has also recently graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and and is now a certified holistic coach. Maria Paula teaches Vinyasa classes that are both challenging and fun, with emphasis on alignment and safety. Recently Maria Paula moved to Miami and her goal is to share the benefits of Yoga with everyone.

Galina Obuhov

Galina began practicing Yoga in 2010 and immersed herself in as many styles as she could fit into her busy schedule. She fell in love with the practice and quickly realized that Yoga was more than just something she wanted to "do", it was something she wanted to share with others.  In October 2012, Galina traveled to a small town in Central India called Khajuraho, to complete her first 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in Classical Hatha Yoga. In 2013, she followed up with a 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training in Vinyasa flow through Atmananda Yoga Sequence in New York.  In February 2015, she began her studies of Thai Yoga Massage at Integral Yoga Institute in New York. Galina wanted to expand her knowledge of the human body, enabling her to work with her students on a deeper level.  Also in 2015, she was introduced to Pilates and knew it would be a complement to her teaching repertoire. She completed a Comprehensive Pilates Training program including the Reformer, Chair, Tower, Cadillac, and mat through Helen's Intensive Pilates, in Brooklyn, New York. In addition, Galina is also a certified Kettle Bell Fusion Instructor. Galina has been teaching Pilates, Yoga and Kettle Bell Fusion at Helen's Intensive Pilates in New York for the past 1.5 years, until she decided to move to Florida and continue to share her passion of Yoga and Pilates with the beautiful people of Miami! Galina is originally from Latvia and speaks fluent Russian and English. She loves skiing, hiking, camping, reading and listening to Jazz!
