Help Yourself, Help Survivors: Virtual Yoga for MCASA

As we continue to navigate our way through the pandemic's upheaval, yoga can help ground us and ease the swirling stress, helping us to find inner peace. Flow with us and let your practice benefit sexual assault survivors. 

María Elena Montero of Willow Street Yoga Center will lead a 50 minute class for all skill levels. Students can expect an extra-long warm-up, and a slow but steady sequence of movements focused on building strength, flexibility, focus, and calm. This steadying practice benefits students of all levels, including beginners- no experience or flexibility required.

Suggested donation of $15 to attend- all proceeds support Maryland survivors of sexual violence

Meet Your Instructor

María Elena Montero first discovered yoga as way to manage back pain, but quickly fell in love with the simple connection to breath. She is deeply committed to sharing Yoga as a healing resource for dis-eases of the body and soul, and if a single word could describe her practice, it would be joy. María Elena guides her students in a way that is at once thoughtful & fun, infusing joy, humor and strength in her practice and in her teaching, remembering that all you ever have to do is breathe (and eat chocolate). She teaches a virtual all-levels class at the historic Willow Street Yoga Center on Sunday mornings. Visit for more info.
