I Am Maris: Portrait of a Young Yogi 7:20 pm – Thursday, Theater 6
Directed By: Laura VanZee Taylor
Run Time: 54 Minutes
Maris has suffered from life-threatening anxiety and depression for most of her young life. Fearlessly confronting her buried emotions through painting, writing, therapy, and yoga — Maris travels from despair to self-acceptance. Maris Degener is an old soul born from the strength of a young, fighting spirit. She’s a yogi. She’s a teacher. She’s an inspiration to her students, to the young people she mentors, and to the thousands who follow her on line. And she’s only 17.
