If Maya were to be described in one word, it would be passion. She has an effervescent zest for life, exploring, and sharing that transmutes fluidly into her teaching both on and off the mat and in the water as well. She believes strongly in a life of living art; guiding others to effortlessly weave their dreams and unique gifts into the most intricate tapestry of authenticity and as a collective gift to the world.
Maya is a lover of movement- she finds freedom though yoga, dancing, surfing, hands on healing, traveling, and spending time in the sea. She has made this love her offering on a global scale.
Having both studied and taught all over the world, Maya’s teaching style is unique fusion embodying her greatest inspirations from each place and person along her journey. For the past four years Maya has been based in Indonesia, sharing her teachings and healing practices while hosting transformational vision quest surf/ yoga retreats as well as women’s activation retreats on the island of Ibiza. She has also taught in India, Peru, South Africa, Australia, the U.S, Portugal, and Costa Rica. She owns her own business called “Sundah” in Costa Rica where she teaches yoga, SUP yoga, paddle board, and surfing as well as offering massages.
She is inspired by sustainability and creating a future with a minimal footprint. Maya’s dream is to build her own fully sustainable retreat centre in Costa Rica for people to come and align with their deepest selves while connecting to nature and community. Maya met CJ, the co-founder of Present Moment in 2016 while running a yoga retreat in Bali and was so excited to realize how similar Present Moment felt to her own dream. So a year later, she is thrilled to be joining the team at Present Moment and learning and sharing alongside other motivated healers and yogis.
Find Maya for a spiritually enlivened, playful and creative yoga class in the studio or on the stand up paddle board. Otherwise, take a deep breathe and let it all go as she carries you into a state of deep relaxation in one of her yin yoga classes or perhaps a choice of thai or balinese massage.
