Maria Savvenas

Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation Specialist, RYC® Teacher, Yoga Teacher, MA, Body Ready Method(SM) certified

St. Louis Missouri, USA

RYC® became my solid go-to after my second pregnancy, which I practiced diligently and then pursued certification. I have a functional diastasis, and I managed to heal a still-reducible hernia with RYC®. I am forever grateful. Some of my best tools for clients and students have come from the RYC® toolbox and continue to grow richer with simplicity, after three years of certification. My formal movement practice spans at least 20 years: dance, yoga, group fitness, and personal training, the last five years focused on making my movement practice/teaching more trauma aware. My teaching breaks down movements to make positive changes, as we move to settle into our bodies together with awareness and love. My classes are therapeutic, nourishing, and challenging.
