My name is Maria Broad. I graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a degree in Psychology and a Masters in Counseling. Since graduation, I have dedicated myself to the pursuit of growth, health and happiness. After graduation, I moved to the big apple and landed an incredible job as a personal chef for an elite family. This job sparked my passion for healthy cooking and promoting healthy living. In 2016, I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and became a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. In 2017, I earned my RYT 200 Hour certification from Abhaya Yoga. Today, my husband and I are new residents of Seattle, Washington and the proud parents of our 5 month old son, Rafael Thomas. I am beyond grateful for the love and support of the Oh Baby Fitness community. I have seen the positive results from staying active during and after my own pregnancy, and I look forward to teaching pregnancy yoga to support and nurture women during such a crucial time in their lives. I believe we cannot give our best to others without first giving the very best to ourselves. I am excited to pass on the beautiful gift of self-care to pregnant women through yoga.
