Kathleen Maroney-Hesser, Owner
Kathleen is the founder and guiding practitioner of Sunflower Bodyworks. In 2004 she completed massage therapy training at Potomac Massage Training Institute. She has served on the teaching staff of PMTI and is a member of the American Massage Therapy Association. In 2005, she completed yoga teacher training at the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health. Kathleen is a member of the Kripalu Yoga Teachers Association.
In addition to various levels of Kripalu Yoga, Kathleen offers specialized classes in meditation, yin yoga and adaptive yoga. Kathleen believes that yoga is more than something we do – rather it is a way being in your body, in your life. This understanding is reflected in her open-hearted and joyful teaching style.
Over the years, Kathleen has developed close relationships with the National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH Regional Rehab at Olney) and the Maryland Sports Medicine Center (also in Olney) to allow Sunflower Bodyworks to offer therapeutic massage and yoga that supports rehabilitation efforts.
Shelby believes yoga should be uplifting, challenging and relaxing. She received her yoga certification from the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health. She also attended training in Yin Yoga. Shelby spreads her love of yoga to encompass diverse populations. She also hopes to imbue her students with the knowledge that everyone comes to yoga with their own set of strengths and weaknesses and that yoga is for every body. Shelby’s students love her peaceful and calm approach to teaching – to being.
