My name is Maria McBride and I love to sweat! I have always enjoyed activities that keep me physically and mentally healthy. I also love the food, clothes, habits, and routines that make staying active easy.
In 2010 I opened a Bikram Yoga studio outside of Boston. I love interacting with people, teaching yoga, and helping others feel good through physical activity. Through practicing Bikram Yoga for ten years, I’ve learned that taking care of ourselves mentally is just as important as taking care of ourselves physically.
I live in Massachusetts with my husband Ben,
our son Joseph,
our daughter Winna,
and our crazy Australian Cattle Dog, Dasher.
Here on Rather Be Sweating, I share my favorite ways to stay active and healthy. And whether you’re an avid exerciser or someone who enjoys a relaxing stroll, I hope that you can use the information I share to help you do what you’d rather be doing.
