maura barclay: yoga instructor

Maura Barclay, a former Junior Olympian gymnast and professional fire fighter, began her yoga path with a mixed martial art called Budokon. It was in this Iyengar influenced Hatha-Martial Arts hybrid that she discovered the keys to floating and effortless arms balances. She also sustained a debilitating injury that was beyond the scope of Eastern and Western healing modalities. When she finally discovered Yoga Tune Up®, created by Jill Miller in Los Angeles, CA, she was pain free for the first time in over a year. So inspired by the speed and effectiveness of this therapeutic Yoga, she became one of the first teacher trainers and eventually went on to become the Director of Training and Continuing Education for Tune Up Fitness Worldwide. Currently, she enjoys teaching Yoga Tune Up® at CrossFit and traveling around the US teaching Embodied Anatomy modules for 200 hour Yoga Teacher Trainings.
