Mariza Smith

Mariza tries to keep her classes honest. She holds her spirituality within her. If you have a question to ask, she will always make time to answer and if she doesn't know the answer, she'll tell you that too. Mariza practiced Iyengar, Ashtanga, Jivamukti and then trained as a gait therapist, her practice is a fusion of all these elements. She plays music in class and tries to make things as fun as possible. She has no fixed ideas on what yoga is or should be.

"The best Yoga Teacher Training"

I had the most amazing time there. I was really anxious about not liking the teacher and the program but it ended up being the best experience ever. Mariza is a wonderful teacher. She taught us so much and gave us useful tools and tips from her personal experience in addition to all the knowledge. I also loved the workshops on Fridays!

It's a challenging experience, due to the short time we have to learn everything but it is so worth it! Mariza was really aware of that and created a safe environment, she made sure we were fine and was there for us the whole time. What I also really liked about her is that she never pushed her opinions onto us about what is right or wrong but let the door open for us to chose what we believe.

This is the kind of life experience that changes you. You are going to learn about yourself, and grow a lot.

I am personnally a lot more confident and I am ready to work for what I love.

I almost forgot to mention how beautiful the chalet is and the view from the shala!! Outstanding.

Go for it, you will learn so much, you will grow, cry, laugh, make friends and you won't ever want to leave.

"Belle expérience"

Mariza est une formatrice qui a beaucoup de connaissances et d'expérience dans le Yoga. Grace à elle, j'ai beaucoup appris sur l'anatomie et la technique des asanas.

Les workshop avec des professeurs extérieurs étaient très intéressants et permettaient de casser la routine.

Le cadre, au cœur de Chamonix, est tout simplement magnifique.

What a journey! Beyond grateful for all the things I have learnt and all the amazing people I've met during the course. Mariza is a very loving and honest person and we've all grown so much. Besides yoga practice, teaching practice & theory, anatomy and yoga philosophy we had workshops in acro yoga, chanting, ayurveda, yoga for sports and thai massage which were awesome and you see lots of different approaches to yoga from the different teachers.

The place is relaxed and in your spare time you can go for a hike or explore the village which is within 15min walking distance (there's also a bus) where you find lots of restaurants and shops.

Definitely an amazing place to learn, grow and love :)
