Maris Aylward


Maris Aylward is a mama, model, TV personality and all-around awesome human being.  Her energy is captivating and her smile is contagious.  Her yoga classes are sequenced perfectly to help students build on their previous  knowledge and yet challenge themselves to go one step further through the flow of movement.

Maris' yoga journey began back home in the Philippines in 2003.

She says, “Starting a yoga practice and radically changing my diet and habits were among the best decisions I’ve made in my life.  As I practiced over the years, I discovered how to nurture myself, to listen to my body, and to be simply grateful for whatever the present moment brings. Yoga started out as a physical activity and slowly evolved into a deeper practice that helps my psychological and spiritual growth." 

Upon moving to the U.S. in 2010, Maris completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training at KC Fitness Link and Levels 1 and 2 training with Yoga Fit. When she's not taking care of baby Kieran, Maris teaches Vinyasa Flow Yoga Classes, hosts her own YouTube Channel called YogaUpload and hosts a KCPTV Arts Show featuring artists in Kansas City.  Follow Maris at:
