Becky Maze is a Knoxville native. She has shown an interest in yoga since her college days. This desire to know yoga’s balance intensified in 2005 as her life changed and growing pains ensued. She is also a Dental Hygienist and holds a B.S. in Health Education. She considers nutrition and overall health an important consideration in yoga practice. She believes that our body is but a vessel for our spirit and we need to treat it kindly. She has been privileged to be involved in the lives of several local cancer survivors over the last 20 years.

She studied yoga under Asheville’s Cindy Dollar (Iyengar Method) at the Glowing Body and she claims Patty Dougherty to be one of her most precious mentors. She has a love for vinyasa and yin. She practices Reiki as well. Her personal yoga journey has brought her into a more balanced lifestyle, which she delights in sharing with others through teaching. Yoga truly helps one find that balance of mind, body, and soul and guides you into the present moment where life truly exist!

YIN YOGA with Becky Maze, RYT-500
Yin yoga is a passive series of poses held for 3-5 minutes each. These poses target the deep connective tissues of the body and the fascia that cover the body to help regulate the flow of energy in the body. It is unique in that you relax in the posture. You soften and it can be meditative. Some benefits:

  • calms the mind
  • regulates energy
  • increases mobility, especially joints, connective tissue/flexibility
  • lowers stress/relaxation
  • greater stamina
  • lubricates joints
  • helps TMJ/migraines
  • aids in Yang practices (flow/vinyasa, etc)
  • teaches you to listen to your body

Practice both Yin/Yang (other types of Yoga) for balance.
