Instructor Highlight Maureen

So Maureen isn’t one of our instructors, but she’s an integral part of Personal Euphoria.  Maureen handles all the money and ensures our whole team gets paid.  She works with the towns, invoices, and processes payment.  And, if you’ve ever tried to watch Maggie count, you know it’s important that she has help in this department.

Get to Know Maureen:

When you aren’t teaching what are some of your favorite ways to move?

Walking the beach, and walking it again.  It’s like a new landscape appears with each tide.  Each tide brings you a new gift. A piece of sea glass, a shell, or just a view. I say it all the time “The beach is my happy place.”

What song motivates or picks you up the most?

Happy… Pharrell Williams (it’s a feel good song and reminds me of Maggie)

Favorite Food?

Hmmmm mostly anything edible. I am sitting here trying to decide what my favorite really is and I realize I don’t have a real favorite, how odd. I certainly have cravings, but if I had to choose, I couldn’t.

Time you normally crawl into bed?

Weeknights 8:30-9:00, Weekends when I wake up from falling asleep on the couch.

What skill would you like to master?

Always wanted to play piano. I can’t even read a note!!!

What would be the most amazing adventure to go on?

Exploring Alaska, some wilderness but mostly quirky little towns full of quirky people.

Favorite season?  Why? 

Toss up between spring and fall. Spring because everything seems to come to life, Fall because I seem to wind down from summer activities

Best advice you’ve ever gotten?

I can’t say I remember getting too much actual advice, but one thing that  I heard someone say a long time ago,  “Do the next right thing” and I’ve taken it to mean ALWAYS do the right thing.  I’m not a rule breaker or someone who takes advantage.  I don’t even like to “get away” with not paying for an item in a store. One time, I was at a package store and purchased some items. I reviewed the receipt when I got into my car and realized there was an item they did not charge me for. I went back in with the item and had them ring it up. There’s something inside me that makes me feel like the item is stolen. I can’t handle it and believe there’s bad Karma attached to it.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.

    Hi Maggie,

    I am glad to know you have Maureen on your team–when I think about it, you must need a lot of teamwork to make things go smoothly with Personal Euphoria, as they appear to me to do. You all do a grand job with providing so many of us opportunities to work on healthy practices. Thank you to all of you!
