#7 What  happens when you step into the unknown and jump – Interview with Maria Cruz

Today I am sharing with you the first interview of the year with Maria, a beautiful & inspiring lady I met in Portugal. How we met was a quite funny story. We connected on Instagram and met for coffee to discuss new yoga projects in Lagos. During our conversation, I fell in love with her passion, joy and love for life, so I had to invite her on the podcast.  Maria was born in Cabo-Verde and grew up between Lisbon and Munich, where she started her Yoga practice in 1998. She has stayed on this path of self-transformation since then. She is also a qualified Massage therapist, bodyworker, Trauma Healing /Breathwork Facilitator, Fitness and Pilates Instructor. Her approach to Yoga goes beyond the physical practice of asana – Maria truly believes that Yoga is a way of living, a perfect tool to help connect our true nature of happiness and contentment in daily life. And I think she is a living example of practising what she preaches.  

Maria and I spoke about:

💫 Her journey of discovering Yoga and becoming a Yoga teacher 

💫 How you can move from Fear to feeling empowered 

💫 How you can find the light in a difficult situation 

💫 Why it is not important how many materialistic things you own to be happy
