    Meet Your Teachers



    Maureen is the founder of Mangala Yoga. She has two incredible children Malia and Aidan. Currently they live in a cute little ski town in Colorado called Telluride. They travel back and forth between Hawaii and Colorado several times a year.

    Maureen began practicing Iyengar yoga in 1997, in a funky ass library in Gaithersburg, Md. where she was raised. Through her many travels she has studied and practice different styles such as, Power vinyasa,Vinyasa Flow, Yin yoga, and Restorative Yoga.

    She received her 200hr and 300hr Yoga Teacher Training in vinyasa flow with the lovely Janet Stone in San Francisco, Ca. She has also studied tantric philosophy with Christopher Wallis aka “Hareesh”.

    Maureen’s background in massage, anatomy and kinesiology has helped her developed several teacher training programs such as the 100hr Bali yoga teacher training, the 200hr. Yoga Teacher Training and 300hr. Advanced Studies Program.

    Her passionate teaching style, is infused with humor and consists of well-balanced, intelligent sequences practiced to upbeat music. Her students have shared that they leave her classes feeling more connected to a strong, capable and grounded self.



    Anita has managed Mangala Yoga since 2011. She and Maureen met in Northern California at Maureen’s previous Yoga studio. They kept in touch throughout the years. When Mangala Yoga was ready to open she moved to Maui, where she met her husband Jeremy. She lives in Kanaio with her adorable dogs, Panda and Leilani and their sassy chickens.

    Anita grew up in Minneapolis, MN. She found yoga in 2007, during a big life transition. She continued to deepen her practice and expand her knowledge of yoga, breath, mindfulness and the art of letting go as she moved up and down the west coast. She has completed 200hr trainings at the Mount Madonna Center and Mangala Yoga, and a 300hr training in 2014 at Mangala Yoga with Maureen. To her yoga is not just physical movement, but a way of life. It is something to fully embody with our mind, body and spirit in each moment. Each day she is reminded this is way easier said then done.

    Anita has been an active part in the development of the yoga teacher training programs at Mangala Yoga throughout the years. She is one of the main teacher trainers and loves to contribute her teachings in the 200 hour yoga teacher training programs. Her weekly classes are infused with intelligent sequencing, inspiring music and her joyous smile.


    Annmarie graced the Mangala Yoga community in 2013 and we’ve never been the same…in a good way! She supported us in the beginning by keeping the studio sparkling clean, where we discovered her cleansing gift of burning sage. From there Annmarie quickly became our go-to sub, teacher, front desk support, friend and more. The winds of change blew her over to Colorado where she helped open and run our sister studio in Telluride. She is currently based in Encinitas, CA where she has been deeply rooted in svadhyaya (self-study), devotion and love.

    In 2004, Annmarie was introduced to hindu philosophies and the practice of meditation through a high school friend in her hometown of south east San Diego. Happily surprised, she found a deeper connection to life. It felt like a secret set of special tools to help her get through many of the worlds obstacles. In 2007, dazed and confused about where to take her future, she stumbled upon a colorful building painted with inspiration labeled “The Chula Vista Yoga Center.” The moment of setting foot into this space known as a hidden gem, she finally felt at home within herself and her life for the first time. By 2009, she landed a full time position at the front desk, started a weekly kid’s class, and earned her 200hr Teacher Training Certificate under her teachers Kristyan Stjerne and Jano Galindo. Respectfully referred to as her “Gurus” as they are trained in several styles from various teachers such as Sri Dharma Mittra, Bikram Choudry, and Tim Miller. She continued her studies with the completion of a 200hr & 300hr with Mangala Yoga in 2014 and 2015 respectively.

    Annmarie serves quite a mixed plate of devotion through being the next generation in the yogic lineage. Now, she’s able to hold the light strong, steady, and with Love by taking the next steps in her practice of extensive trainings from San Francisco, Bali, Costa Rica, Maui, Colorado and California. As the sun rises in the East and sets in the West, Annmarie feels as though the practice of yoga is a universal way of saluting that process and the sacred essence of all life.

    “I am truly stoked to be here. Join me on this journey that leads us to the connectivity of our divine creation. The light and Love within me, honors the light and Love within all of you.” ~ Annmarie

    What Makes Our Training Unique

    When asked why they chose our training over alternative options, most former students emphasize the non-competitive and warm environment. Other key differentiators include the organization and intelligence behind the curriculum and the uniquely practical emphasis on teaching:

    “One of the best things about this training versus others is that we didn’t just talk about pranayama, we didn’t just talk about meditation, we came early in the morning and we did them. It was something you could really embody in those 5 weeks.” – Annmarie Torrez, Yoga Instructor

    Maureen is the ideal instructor for your introduction to yoga teacher training. She has 6 years of success conducting teacher trainings, has graduated over 70 students, 60% of which have gone on to become full-time yoga instructors.

    “Maureen’s history of practice is so intelligently put together. She has different schools of thought and tools that she has gained throughout her practice and years and she puts them all together in such a way that is practical and easy to apply. I had a lot of breakthroughs in Maureen’s training!”

    Jennifer Hunt, who took the teacher training in fall of 2014 says:

    “The teacher training program was amazing! It was well organized and it was quite apparent that Maureen loves doing what she does. She loves to teach and share what she knows with her students…I am not a big school person so for me it was so nice to be in a class that flowed and was done with so much love.”

    We only offer our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training a few times per year because we commit to focusing very intimately on each and every one our students!

    We aren’t interested in simply handing out certifications, we strive to produce intelligent, capable and confident TEACHERS!

    But I am Terrified Of Speaking In Front of Groups!

    If you want to teach yoga but feel a little intimidated about the idea of being in front of a group, this is the perfect opportunity to transcend your fears!

    Sally Aldrin, Spring 2013 graduate, shares she was incredibly nervous to take the training and terrified of speaking in front of groups:

    “I can talk in front of my friends but when I am up in front of a group of people, it is really, really scary! For the longest time, even at work, I remember having sweaty palms and sometimes even blacking out in the middle of my presentations. But Maureen got me to the point where I could do it! It was scary the first 4 classes that I had to teach as part of the training, but after the first one each one got better and better. Now I can get up in front of 50-60 people and have no problem speaking. My fear of speaking in front of groups is completely gone.

    So please don’t be shy! We promise we will work with you on effective and confident communication; which will empower you as a yoga teacher and in all areas of your life.

    When is the retreat portion of the training?

    Our spring retreat dates are: May 18th – 20th, 2018 at a private Maui retreat Center.


    How often are we practicing yoga asana?

    Each meeting, there is a 90-120 min group practice daily. On the day there are more than 120mins they are usually split up throughout the day into 2-3 classes.

    Do I need to have a certain amount of yoga experience to participate in the training?

    Ultimately, no. However, it’s best for all participants to be familiar with vinyasa yoga and have at least a year or more of training in some type of physical movement.

    This is a vinyasa yoga training and we do exert a bit of energy. If you are healing from a major injury, pregnant in your third trimester or haven’t been very physical in the last year this may not be the best training for you.
