Making smoothies is one of the easiest ways to cover your nutritional needs for the day. This green goodness smoothie contains a whole lot of easily digestible nutrients that act as an insurance policy to make sure you fill all your daily nutritional requirements. It’s also a great way to start the morning with a bang, so that you are encouraged to keep eating well throughout the day.

Maz’s passion for food has always been apparent to her friends and family. It was only natural then, that she would trade in her corporate career for a chance to open Sydney’s first cafes specialising in organic, plant-based living foods and wholefoods.
Maz describes herself as an avid yoga, raw food and star wars enthusiast. She first set foot onto a yoga mat at Lila Yoga in 2010, and has carried one with her everywhere she goes ever since. She completed yoga teacher training at Samadhi Yoga (now Jivamukti Yoga Sydney) in 2011 and was fortunate enough to connect with a whole bunch of awesome people who have inspired and guided her journey. She practices Ashtanga with Eileen Hall at Yoga Moves and teaches classes whenever she can.
As a yoga teacher, Maz strives to encourage students to work towards a deeper connection with their mind, body and spirit. She believes that what we put into our bodies everyday is part of our Sadhana (conscious spiritual practice). She hopes to share how through our Sadhana, everyone can discover their own personal wisdom, self healing abilities and infinite potential. She believes that through the practice of yoga and a healthy lifestyle, once can find happiness, health and freedom for all beings and at the same time, care for our world.
Having previously worked within healthcare in both a clinical and commercial capacity, Maz is currently the director of Sadhana Kitchen and spends her working days whipping up delicious, healthy, sustainable and ethical food, running workshops around the country and finding new ways to help others transform themselves and their world through their plates. Outside of Sadhana Kitchen, Maz can be found practicing yoga, enjoying nature, riding motorbikes & making music.
