She is a Somatic Educator and has over 16 years experience designing and implementing exercise programs for performance, health and rehabilitation for people of all ages and abilities. In the capacity of an Athletic Trainer, Maria has had the opportunity to work with several Womenâ€™s hockey teams and Menâ€™s Lacrosse teams that have competed at national events including the Esso Womenâ€™s Nationals, National Womenâ€™s U18 Challenge and Presidents Cup Championships.

Mariaâ€™s philosophy is to design and coach programs that have purpose. She will help you identify a meaningful goal and then guide you there by enhancing your freedom to move and perform. Her programs bridge the gap between performance skills and the physical demands required by that goal, a formula that inevitably leads to your success.
