María Sánchez-Muñiz has always been mesmerized the mind/body connection. Her practice is primarily informed by the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program created by Jon Kabat-Zinn and the Art of Living program.  She has undertaken many periods of silent long-term retreat practice. When María is not on her meditation cushion, she can be found in a library finishing her Ph.D. thesis in Mathematics, lecturing Calculus, teaching group fitness classes at Rec Well, or hammocking by the Mississippi River with her dog.

Nadia’s personal meditation practice started in 2017, soon after she received over a 100 hours of meditation teacher-training in different lineages/styles, such as: Loving kindness meditation, mindfulness meditation, Shamatha meditation, and Vipassana meditation. She uses her daily practice to bring mindfulness to her life as a student and a teacher. Nadia believes that meditation should be an accessible tool to manage stress and cultivate emotional well-being.
