About the Presenter

Maria Jones

I am a yoga teacher and health professional I am a champion in chair based yoga and adapted yoga movement. As a chronically ill person, I have not always been able to practice yoga with ease. Either in pain, or experiencing fatigue, stiffness and weakness in my body it has not been easy to find yoga classes that accounted for my limited abilities. When I became a yoga teacher I quickly decided to develop teaching skills that make the practice available to those less able, older and chronically ill.
