Hello! My name is Maria Shishkina. I am a yoga therapist, myotherapist and author of international programs. I do my favourite job for more than 12 years and this is my life! Now looking back at my life, I can say that Love rules the world!
Through the difficult path of teenage complexes towards self-love, awareness of unique features of the body and thoughts – all these led me to the profession of yoga therapist and teacher. Now I teach others to love themselves and the world around.
Since my childhood I’ve dreamed of living in a house by the sea. Warm sea. Where the sun shines all year round and people smile at each other when they meet. Quite spontaneously in the 8-9 class I began to learn Spanish – I liked it. The images of passionate bullfighters and dancers, bright feelings and colours popped up in my head every time when someone pronounced “Spain” …
But there was no idea of moving here. Fortune brought. The happiest and, I think, deserved. After all, about what you sincerely dream, it will come true!
For three years now we live in Spain. Moving here was not just a new milestone in the history of my family, but also a serious challenge, a complete change of opinions and views, opening a new Universe.
Costa del Sol – a place from where love splashes from! Everything here says to the person “Take off the mask, leave prejudices, let Nature impregnate you with Love!”
It is impossible to describe the level of happiness that rages in me every second. I enjoy my favorite work, sand and sea all year round, perfect in all respects childhood of my beloved son Matthew, nights, soaked in the sweet scent of Dama de Nochet, beautiful people on the street, smiles …
Going for a run along the paseo, the first thing I do naturally thank Life for what it Is. Right now. Mine.
In Russian. In English. And now in Spanish.
Yes, I am an “extranjero”. But with a beautiful Andalusian accent and own slice of Happiness on this wonderful land!..
Now a bit about my professional biography.
