Maureen is an Occupational Therapist and teacher, with many years experience working with adults undergoing rehabilitation for a variety of conditions, including movement disorders caused by Parkinson’s Disease and brain injury. In her career as a therapist, she found that she had a passion for teaching and has been able to incorporate this into her clinical practice . Her interest in the relationship between the mind and body and healing led her to begin practicing yoga. Seeing the benefits of yoga for rehabilitation, injury prevention, and overall healing, she began instructor training at Shanti Yoga Shala under the direction of Nathalie Croix, completing training in May 2018. When not working or teaching yoga, Maureen enjoys singing with Symphony Chorus of New Orleans, zydeco and swing dancing, and performing with the Disco Amigos.
Maureen Herring instructs the following:
This class is for beginners through intermediate students. Students will be guided through asanas in the Vinyasa style, beginning with the basic poses, but also allowing for more challenging poses based on your practice level. This is a great class for students who are newer to yoga or those who are looking for a gentler pace.
