Maya grew up in Yokohama, Japan.Through her mother who was a yoga teacher,
she was exposed to the therapeutic and holistic approach of yoga to health and well-being in her youth. Later, yoga became an essential element in her life, bringing her an inner balance and
perfect remedy for anxiety and chronic fatigue that she used to struggle with.
After her university studies, Maya lived in Zurich (Switzerland) then in
Berkeley (California, USA) for several years, where she completed her yoga teacher trainings. Practicing yoga has always been a mysteriously joyful experience for her. It gives her mental
stability and a tool to navigate through challenges of life. She is delighted to share her experience with those who are interested in this art of living.
Besides her dedicated daily practice, she continues to study with internationally recognised yoga and meditation teachers to deepen her knowledge. She is deeply
grateful to all of her teachers for their wisdom and support, including Judith Hanson Lasater, Sianna Sherman, Paul Muller-Ortega and Christopher Hareesh Wallis.
