Dr. Maureen HughesAncient Healing Methods
Dr. Maureen has been on the path since starting yoga class in 1999. Much has happened in that time, walking on and off the path, and having the confidence to step away from a more traditional job and in finding what she likes to call “The Soul Self”. There is always a reason to change for the better.
After hitting rock bottom personally, she finally had the confidence to step into her True Path in early 2014. Now, she helps others who are looking for theirs, or are already on their own True Path that simply want to be healthier and happier. She does this by teaching and practicing SomaVeda® Thai Yoga and Integrative Therapies during one-one sessions or workshops, by teaching group yoga classes, and being an overall “Mover of Energy”. Her goal to help others connect their mind and body, to help others FEEL again, and finding that joy in life that everyone deserves, along with teaching others to do the same.
Her background includes a PhD in Immunology from Washington University in St. Louis (2003), studying T-Cell Development. She was a scientific educator and salesperson for over 7 years with two California based biotech companies. Her teaching has embodied a naturally scientific approach. Over 15 years of self-exploration of the ancient principles of the chakras and Eastern Philosophy allows her to also take a psychological and energetic approach to guiding her clients through the practice. She most wants to help anybody interested in gaining balance (on all levels), relieving pain in the body and calamity in the mind, or those wanting to get to know their bodies better so they can live stronger, longer lives.
