Yoga is the path towards Union. Through Maria Alive Therapeutics I’m working to build strong connections and a community of practitioners who come together to share our knowledge and experience.
I believe we’re stronger and more effective together, and ultimately happier in sharing and communion. My intention is to share the goodness of others whom I feel are providing ideas and services that complement what I offer you.
The Buddhist term Sangha best describes this. We often use this term in the yoga world as an understanding of how we come together in class and other ways of sharing. I offer this as a concept of how I present those with whom I collaborate and connect for my work.
The meaning of Sangha is:
- Practicing the good way
- Practicing the upright way
- Practicing the knowledgeable or logical way
- Practicing the proper way

Aum Tantra, The Yoga of Sensual Delight
The discussion of sensual delight and the goal of living fully in one’s body, ever present and delightfully aware of life as an inspirational dream that can be created consciously is what this book will share with the World. Aum is the vibration of the Universe, and as such, encompasses each of us fully; helping to shape and facilitate not only health and healing, but also a more vibrant, ALIVE, life. Maria and Victor combine the many decades they have each explored these concepts and created personal lifestyles to fully understand the vibration of life.
Look for a published book in the next year, as well as workshops, retreats and playful gatherings to step more fully into your light.
