Sophia Maamouri, LMT, RYT500. As a Massage Therapist for the past 30 years, I have looked for a way to expand my practice of therapeutic bodywork. I am interested in a healing system that takes the complexity of the human beings into account. The ayurvedic and yogic tradition answered my longing. I came to Maine in 1994 to pursue my dream of homesteading, and of living a simple and joyful life. I love to eat fresh food right out of the garden whenever possible; my husband and I grow most of it. Being in nature, hiking, swimming (when the water is warm), gardening, traveling and exploring the world are some of my favorite activities. My education started in the arts. I came to the U.S.A in 1982 to attend The Maryland Institute College of Art and earned a BFA in 1986. I was also drawn to the healing arts, which led me to a series of school from which I graduated: The Potomac Myotherapy Institute, The Kripalu School of Yoga and Ayurveda and The Yoga Life Institute of New Hampshire. I believe that health is the free expression of our true nature. Yoga and Ayurveda have a long tradition of wisdom to help us live more fully in an increasingly complicated world.
