Maya

A Yogi on a mission. She is an artist, a poet, a scholar, a student and a teacher, in pursuit of the kind of wisdom that can only be accessed through being fully embodied in authenticity . Her spiritual practice is not about leaving the physical reality and the challenges life presents us, but rather, diving deeper in.

Being a free-spirit here to Give and a leader in the creation of a better future for all life on Earth, Maya has an incredible intuitive power to feel the energy of her students, and always creates unique experiences that speaks directly to the hearts and souls of those present. Her goal is to enable you to connect with the inner wisdom of your body, increase your energy levels and expand your self-awareness.

Maya will inspire you to take charge of your own spiritual, emotional and energetic health to make lifestyle choices that give you more power.
She is fierce, wild, ferocious, one of the strongest women you’ll ever meet. She is also delicate, gentle, paper thin. She knows how to cry and is unafraid to feel.
She is laid back with language, she is unpretentious, humorous, down to earth. She’ll call you out when you are wrong, or bad, or mean, or when you’re lying to yourself. She wont blush if you call her out. Her grace in such matters is rarely matched.

Maya is far more qualified and educated than her relaxed attitude and humility show. She is an initiated Shaman, an academic (she holds a Masters Degree in Yoga Science) and is both well-read and travelled. At age 16 she left her family in Sweden for India, where an encounter with the world-renown Guru B.K.S. Iyengar lit a fire in her soul that burns bright to this day. Her journey has taken her all over the world, bringing inspiration from different styles of yoga with many illustrious teachers.

She teaches Yoga and meditation, of course, that’s why you’re here. However, what she shares is something far grander, Maia teaches life.

Passionate about Thai massage for the teaching of humility, presence and dedication that inspires to those who practice. She regularly visits her teachers in India and Thailand, as an eternal student and researcher.

“Yoga is life. The greatest growth I found when sharing my mat and my practice space with other people, then you see yourself and your tendencies. Acroyoga taught me to trust, to give myself with respect, patience and listening, to breathe with strangers as if they were my brothers, to care for others with my heart, not to judge, to be more equanimous and loving, to be happier for others’ achievements, than for my own.

Yoga shows a way to loose fears and recover the divine strength common to all beings. Yoga is you, aware of the gift of breathing and life, present and in absolute union with all beings “In her classes she cares for every student with joy, encouraging all to achieve their goals.
