About Settled

The Brand

The brand name embodies the wisdom of the Yoga Sutras which explain that yoga is the settling of the mind into quiet and in that settled state we are harmoniously aligned with our true nature.

Our Mission

Our intention and mission is to inspire others to empower themselves with the knowledge, training and conditioning practices that serve to remove any obstacles standing in the way of our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

What We Provide

The Settled brand encompasses a range of products and services that include vocational training for Hatha yoga teachers, Settled Body Rolling School Trainings, International Wellness Retreats and Yoga Sailing Holidays.


Maria designed Settledown heart-shaped eye pillows as a yoga and relaxation accessory for quiet times like savasana, yoga nidra and meditation. They are made from locally sourced lavender and flax and then wrapped with organic, soft double gauze fabric.
