About Mado:

After discovering Martial Arts in college, Mado found her way to yoga in order to balance her body from the intensity of martial arts training. Once she became a mother, she devoted herself fully to yoga and started teaching in 2005.

After teaching full time for several years, Mado learned the importance of cross training and began to incorporate other types of movement into her life, specifically hiking, crossfit and aerial arts. She also loves to have mid day toddler dance parties in her living room with her youngest child and friends.

Mado’s passion is training and mentoring other yoga teachers, which she does by hosting/producing the Yoga Teacher Resource Podcast and through private and group coaching programs. Find out more about the podcast and how to work with her at
