Maggie grew up in a small village in County Cork, Ireland. As a young girl she loved to dance which became her form of self expression. She performed with the Cork City Ballet in multiple productions and graduated from Dance College in Colàiste Stiofàin Naofa. Maggie spent a couple of years traveling and working in the Spanish Canary Islands where she cultivated the Yama ‘Aparigraha’ (Non-hoarding/letting go) as she lived and traveled with fewpossessions. Ultimately her travels led her to Palm Coast Florida where she returned to her love of movement and mind body connection through yoga and  embarked on her 200hr YTT under the esteemed Gillian Taylor, founder of One Love Yoga. This program allowed Maggie to gain an extensive knowledge of the asana practice and an understanding of the philosophy of Yoga. Following her graduation from Yoga teacher training, Maggie was asked to teach at One Love Yoga studio where she taught multiple classes a week as well as teaching in other studios in the Palm Coast area. She moved to Ocala with her husband in September 2021 and is excited to share her practice with students in Ocala as she continues her own learning and practice of applying the Yamas and Niyamas to her daily life.

I began teaching yoga in Concord, NH 2012. My background is in Taoist Yoga and Bikram (hot) yoga. My passion to share yoga stems from my own healing journey that continues to develop today. This is your body, this is your mind; come find your Self beyond this gathering of of body/mind and open your experience to joyful expression on and off the mat.

Zaneh Romaine

  • Instagram

Zaneh, pronounced like Dana, but with a “Z”. 😊 Zaneh was born and raised in Ocala, Fl and have pretty much lived an active lifestyle most of her life. Like many others, her health took a back seat when it came to  education and soon after college I found herself overweight, stressed, and constantly fatigued among other ailments. When she finally decided to turn things around she found herself struggling to maintain a consistent workout routine. At the time, most exercises were too stressful on the body and would cause a negative reaction with my blood sugar (probably from the years of abuse on her body and the overconsumption of caffeine in college). Frustrated with the realization that even most exercises were too stressful on her body, she was  suggested to try yoga. And was the best advice she had ever received! Zaneh can still remember that first class and how amazing she felt; physically, mentally, and even spiritually. It was this beautiful blend of strength and flexibility with a connection to breath. Zaneh felt her mind was clear and focused.  It was such a magical and memorable experience that has made her hooked to yoga ever since. As a yoga teacher, it is my hope to spark the interest of each student and ignite a hunger to keep coming back for more. I’ll see you on your mat!
