Maureen, owner of Dwell Yoga, entered into the world of yoga in 2012, not knowing where this journey would take her. With two young daughters at the time, she was simply looking for an hour to herself to move and breathe. It was during this time that she experienced a Holy Yoga class that transformed her time on her mat.
Before life as a stay-at-home mom, Maureen enjoyed working as a health and wellness writer, a consultant developing corporate wellness programs around the country, and as a fitness specialist trained at the world renowned Cooper Clinic. She obtained her Master of Science degree in Health Promotion from the University of North Texas and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from Texas Woman’s University.
In the fall of 2013, she felt God nudging her to pursue her 225-hour yoga certification through Holy Yoga. She then went on to complete Holy Yoga Touch Training, Holy Yoga Kids Yoga Training, and Holy Yoga Therapy, a 220-hour advanced program. In the fall of 2017 she felt God nudged her again with a dream of opening a Christ-centered yoga studio in Frisco. As a response to God’s goodness and provision in her life, Maureen founded Rooted116, LLC (based on Psalms 116) to house whatever business would grow from the seed planted in her heart. This seed became Dwell Yoga.
Most recently, Maureen became a Licensed Instructor Trainer with Holy Yoga and now co-leads Holy Yoga Teacher Trainings at Dwell. You will find Maureen teaching a variety of Holy Yoga classes at Dwell. Her heart is to provide opportunities for her students to experience yoga as a moving, breathing worship of the Lord, through the postures, the breath and the mediation of the heart.
