Maya is a recent addition to the Cape Town community, moving to Africa from New York City in 2012. After being introduced to her first Bikram class in Chicago in 2007, Maya fell in love with Bikram and all types of yoga. As a former collegiate athlete, she loves the physical challenge, but believes yoga’s true value is providing mental, physical and spiritual balance that allows us to have compassion for ourselves.
She believes in creativity, shifting perspectives and having fun. There is always more to learn each and every day through both teaching and practising yoga.
Maya received her RYS teaching certification in 2010 In New York City, and has been teaching hatha, vinyasa and Bikram classes ever since. Her class will leave you sweaty, challenged, and just a little bit lighter. Maya is the studio manager of YogaLife. In her spare time she enjoys practicing yoga of all kinds, traveling, hiking, surfing and taking in all that the beautiful city of Cape Town has to offer.
