We want to flow with you 

“If you are flowing, your energy is such a flood that all the rocks of the mind and thoughts are thrown away, taken to the ocean. They cannot stay in the way.”


 Stretch your mind 

“There are painters who transform the sun to a yellow spot, but there are others who with help of their art and their intelligence, transform the yellow spot
into sun.”

-Pablo Picasso-

Realignment of your perception 

“Life is a challenge, meet it!
Life is a dream, realize it!
Life is a game, play it!
Life is love, enjoy it!”

-Sathya Sai Baba-


Maria was born in Spain, and over the years has lived in Mexico, South Africa and London.
In each place she learned different yoga and meditation techniques, finally specialising in creative Vinyasa Flow yoga, guided meditation & pranayama.

Maria's practice focuses on self-discovery through yoga, moving beyond nourishing the body but also the mind and soul, and discovering a world beyond the rational into spirituality and creativity.
She is dedicated to helping those with busy lives discover inner-peace, self-expression, community and healthy living through the practice of yoga and meditation.

The meaning of Sawabona is a state of recognition. “I see you, I respect you, therefore… we exist”. We respect and see the talent of others and we offer a roof to different creators (teachers, artisans, photographers) to share their arts with us. The power of creative energy is what makes a real transformation of the soul. Collaborating with other artists including yoga teachers, we offer you to explore our different forms of expression through our community, expanding frontiers and self-discovery. The true intention of the “Sawabona experience” is to see with honest eyes & an open heart the art of creation during retreats, events and handmade products, all made with love and care.


“The teacher becomes the student, the student becomes the teacher”

Through retreats & a variety of workshops, we want to bring to a small/medium sized group of conscious people, the experience of getting deeper into the yoga practise in different locations, in collaboration with other talented teachers with various styles. From Vinyasa Flow to Kundalini yoga the Sawabona community will be part of those gatherings not just with the purpose of moving the body & challenging it in an idyllic location, but also to you help you relax through the journey of self-discovery guided by all of us. “Yoga is a light, which once lit, will never dim”.
