PARNITA - Maria Grimes

My personal yoga journey started many years ago, as a way to soothe my body after many long hours of dancing and teaching Ballroom Dancing. Yoga kept my  body flexible and prevented injuries. I discovered yoga changes your life, not just physically but also mentally, emotional and spiritually. It basically just sorts you out.
I traveled the world and continued to practice yoga everyday, I was just drawn to the practice.
So inspired by other Yoga Teachers on my travels, In 2014 I stopped to study my 200 YTT Yoga Teacher Training with Yogacara in Whistler, Canada.
When I returned to Australia I began teaching and sharing my knowledge straight away. I started up as Soul n Body Health and taught at many different places, not really finding my  home yet.
Two years later in 2016, I traveled to Rishikesh, India & continued my studies achieving my 300 YTT Yoga Teacher Training with Akhanda Yoga. What an amazing journey of self growth. Here I was given my  Sanskrit name "Parnita" meaning angel wings by my  guru. From this Parnita's Yoga was born.
