Maria Massei-Rosato is a published author with an M.F.A in creative non-fiction from The New School, NY. She has taught poetry workshops for adults and children with developmental disabilities and currently teaches a yoga/writing workshop with Donna at Golden Bridge, NYC and Sewall House, Maine. Maria attended Robert McKee’s Story seminar, the Harvard Business School Executive Education for High-Potential Leaders and she holds a B.S. from New York University.

 

Maria completed a memoir, which was selected as a semi-finalist in the William Faulkner Creative Writing Competition and she completed a screenplay, a tale of two journeys: cycling across the country and caring for her mom through a debilitating illness. The movie is meant to convey what she has learned along the way: life requires strength in the face of adversity, patience when confronted with a challenge, and faith when all seems lost. 

Yoga is especially relevant to creativity because of the spiritual aspects of the practice. When you consider that the practice of yoga originated from that need for the individual to somehow unite with the universe, how can we not proceed to harness that energy for creative thought? Yoga provides that pathway to the creative thought making it particularly helpful to the writer.

 

"Your life is a sacred journey. It is about change, growth, discovery, movement, transformation, continuously expanding your vision of what is possible, stretching your soul, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening to your intuition, taking courageous challenges at every step along the way. You are on the path... exactly where you are meant to be right now... And from here, you can only go forward, shaping your life story into a magnificent tale of triumph, of healing, of courage, of beauty, of wisdom, of power, of dignity, and of love." Caroline Adams, Author.

With Donna Amrita Davidge and Maria Massei-Rosato

About the Dancing Spider Yoga Certificate

 

The Dancing Spider Yoga Certificate Training supports and inspires anyone beginning to work with children as they continue their own practice. Parents at home, teachers in the classroom, therapists in the schools, all carry the burden of many lives.  Let this delightful and spiritual training help you feel more prepared and excited; leave feeling capable. 

 

In this glorious time away with Ajeet, you'll get a practicum of poses, fun yoga sets, meditations, all in a great easy-to-follow manual. "The manual is great - the rhymes are descriptive and flow together well - easy to memorize, and I can​ still be creative with tempo and the needs of the class. Practicing it left me feeling focused, refreshed and balanced." Jonie A.  Teacher & Parent​

 

By the end of the training you'll have awakened your own spirit within, your own divine essence, you'll embody the golden thread of this beautiful Kundalini lineage and gain confidence in your own unique reach into establishing deep connections with yourself, your children and your students.
