Maria Noe takes us on her journey from being a professional singer to becoming a yoga instructor & somatic coach.
When she talks about the person she used to be, it seems as if she is talking about another person. She had several incidences where she was considering to change her lifestyle but only one of them was so traumatic, that it shook her whole life and turned everything upside down. She experienced sexual assault and the PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) that so often comes with it — consequently bringing her to leave her career in entertainment to pursue her personal healing journey.
It all started when she first stumbled across a yoga studio nearby her home. This is where she learned to reconnect with herself through flowing movements, breathing exercises, meditation, and the yogic philosophy. She was intrigued by the impact yoga had on her and deepened her knowledge in holistic & somatic healing therapies.
After going through the trauma of the assault and finding techniques to reconnect with her body and heal herself, her passion now lies in helping other survivors do the same.
