MAHARA'S STUDIES 

1/42

Seeker of truth and love

After building up and managing her own Yoga studio "2nd Floor Yoga" for 2 years in New Zealand,

Mahara realized that she was wasting all her energy towards marketing and managing her studio instead of doing what she really wanted to do, which was helping others to help themselves with Tantric & Shamanic Arts, Mindfulness and Meditation, Body Work, Yoga Therapy, Authentic Movement and Dance. 

In 2017 she decided to sell everything in New Zealand and combine her two biggest passions;

Traveling & Facilitating Workshops, Trainings and Retreats around the globe.

MAHARA'S FINEST TEACHERS ARE NATURE, CHILDREN & LIFE. 

DIVING ALL IN. EXPERIENCING ALL OF LIFE - PAIN AND PLEASURE.

With every passing moment in every chapter of life comes a world of lessons and knowledge.

From her quiet, humble beginnings, through the glitz & glamor of fame, and back to a simple,

introspective path, LIFE continues to be Mahara's finest teacher,

reinforcing the notion that what really matters is

TRUTH, LOVE for all living beings & COMMUNITY.
