"Maria’s methodology is a true representation of her passions & her gifts. In our work together I was able to cultivate a stronger connection between my mind & my body, and unearth a powerful vision for myself as a creator. As a result, I am infinitely more grounded, not just in my personal practice, but on my journey to self actualization."

Whether you want to  host a workshop, launch an online course, develop a training curriculum, publish a book of poetry, or revamp your service-based business, we are here to help. Groove Forward is dedicated to expanding the field of creative health, and we are deeply inspired by people like you!

"Working with Maria has been incredible. We accomplished in a couple of hours what likely would have taken me weeks to plan and sort through. Maria helped bring focus and intention as we planned a workshop and created authentic marketing strategies. Maria's holistic approach brought a sense of peace & calm to the process, allowing me to trust myself and the work I do. I've learned so much from working with her and it has given me to confidence to continue to expand my business in a new way."

- Joy, LCSW & Psychotherapist

"Working with Maria is a treat, and meetings with her feel like finally receiving the assistance you want from teachers with the warmth of what you want from friends. She is a receptive, insightful, and strong guide, and allows space for whatever comes up to come up--moving through it towards a positive flow of co-creation. Her feedback is fueled with support and creative idea-generation. Interest. Passion. Insight. I leave our meetings reminded of my own creative power with the support to propel me forward. She’s a great teacher and I would recommend her to anyone looking for extra insight and inspiration in their personal projects!"

- Taylor, Artist & Writer

"Maria has a beautiful way with words. She listens to my thoughts and ideas and presents them back to me in new and exciting ways. She has helped me remember the inspiration for my dreams and goals and she encourages me to take action. Maria is a creative independent thinker and a wonderful being to share time with."

- Samantha, Yoga Teacher & Massage Practitioner

"Maria's teaching style is so valuable that I wish it was fundamental part of an educational program offered to a wide group of individuals. It brought forth many thoughts and blockages that I needed to feel and work through to be lighter. It also gave me tools to use in the future to continue this process throughout all aspects of my life. Maria's teaching style is beautifully direct and creative. All love and beauty surround her.  Each word she speaks is filled with knowledge and passion. She leaves room for your own interpretations while guiding you to see things from another perspective."

- Cynthia, Yogi & Explorer

“Maria is such an authentic person with a gift for connecting people back to their truth. We are so incredibly lucky to have her in our community. She is both an amazing artist and inspiring yoga teacher, and she shares her wisdom of Tantra and the depths of her personal practices.”

- Jackie, Yoga Teacher & Owner of Terra Sol Sanctuary
