Getaway Giveaway

Posted on December 9th, 2010 by Maria Santoferraro

So, I started teaching yoga classes for my friends and family recently and went out and bought a bunch of yoga mats so the newbies could practice in style on the comfort of their own mats. I thought this would be a nice thing to do, but the problem was schlepping all those mats around. Carrying […]

Eat, Work, Yoga

“[My guru] says that people universally tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will maybe descend upon you like fine weather if you are fortunate enough. But that’s not how happiness works. Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and […]

“There is no substitute for the riches gained on a lifetime basis by the young American who studies or works abroad.” —Letitia Baldrige I believe this quote is true, and one of my lifelong dreams has always been to work and live abroad for a period of time. Don’t get me wrong; I love living […]

“I think that to get under the surface and really appreciate the beauty of any country, one has to go there poor.” —Grace Moore I couldn’t get enough of Grace yesterday, so I had to include another quote from her. When’s the last time you went on a trip and really got the feel of […]

I recently went on a cruise with a pit stop on the St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands and was looking for a great way to see the island and get a little adventure all in one. With the power of the Internet, I was able to find a tour provider with all the right stuff: – […]

Thank You for Flying Yoga Airlines

Posted on June 14th, 2010 by Maria Santoferraro

The other night in yoga class, we went from standing split pose to airplane pose, which, if you have ever done it before, is really hard to do and still keep your balance. Airplane pose is not one of my favorites. You have to stand on one leg, raise the other leg behind you, and […]

“If I had my life to live over, I would have seen more of the world and enjoyed being somewhere else instead of staying home and worrying about things.” –Erma Bombeck Amen Erma! These are definitely words to live by. Stop worrying and get out there and see the world! Stop by every day (M-F) […]

Drinking and Learning Can Be Fun!

Posted on February 16th, 2010 by Maria Santoferraro

Hey, it’s not always just about getting a buzz; sometimes you can turn imbibing into an educational and cultural experience. I had the pleasure of doing just that when I attended a champagne and chocolate tasting last week at the Akron Art Museum.  It also served as a great venue to host my MariaMedia launch […]

Beaches & Beer!

Posted on January 21st, 2010 by admin

Aaahhh, two of my most favorite things…a cold brew and a beautiful beach! I started taking pictures of my beach beer escapades quite a few years ago and have some great pics to share. The beer and the beach are always the stars of the photo shoot, except on some occasions when a cocktail or […]

MariaMedia 101

Posted on January 12th, 2010 by Maria Santoferraro

This is my first blog entry for MariaMedia! Cheers! I thought it might be helpful to explain a little about the subject matter you’ll find at MariaMedia. I’m a woman of many interests and I have to admit, it was hard to narrow down a subject matter focus for MariaMedia. I finally said what the […]
