For me, it is about you!

Let your intuition guide you to enjoy Yoga in a new way...

My teaching is Hatha Yoga based and I specialize in intuitive Yoga - intuitive and gentle with a challenging edge for healthy expansion. This means I will encourage you often to find your own rhythm, go at your own pace, rest when needed, and never hold a pose longer than it feels right for you!

Using your intuition in Yoga can greatly help with learning to listen to our bodies, gently adjusting postures to our individual needs, enhancing our overall well-feeling, and thus supporting you to create a practice that becomes uniquely your own.

It is all about being kind to yourself, progressing slowly, feeling comfortable and relaxed, enjoying the sessions, and emerging refreshed and inspired!

I offer a holistic practice that provides 'Yoga for the mind' alongside our physical practice. We work on themes each term like  ‘Feeling centered’, 'Exploring Energy', or currently 'Finding Balance' and each week we look into different aspects of our theme and how to apply it on & off the mat, e.g. how to find balance for ourselves in daily life also.

A BIG thank you to everyone, from critic to enthusiast, who has participated and supported me on the YogaIntuition journey to develop this new path and find my own footing as a teacher. I couldn't have done it without you!

According to a 2018 survey by Yoga Alliance only


of Yoga of teachers offer the Mind- Body-Spirit experience in their classes. You have found one of them.

Relaxation is one of my specialties - at the end of each class I guide you through a deep relaxation of 5 - 10 minutes.

About Me

My name is Maja Moritz. I am a certified and registered Yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance.

I am originally from Germany and have lived in Christchurch, NZ since 2004. I had 20 years of experience in practising Yoga before I decided to qualify as a teacher in 2016. My style of teaching is Hatha Yoga based and I specialize in Intuitive Yoga, which encourages listening to our body for guidance and emphasizes gentleness, well-feeling, and individual freedom.

Apart from Yoga, I have studied Multimedia in Christchurch, and originally obtained a Bachelor of Communication Design at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, Germany.

Above all I love nature 💚

My Experience

Please check my experience including locations & teaching hours here.

Besides being passionate about Yoga, I am also passionate about photography. My background is rooted in a long career as an international sports photographer. The link between yoga & photography is focus. What we focus on, we create. And I am probably most passionate about ‘personal development’ for which Yoga provides the ultimate platform with its rich history of 5000+ years and countless traditions feeding into it.

In 2019 I qualified as a certified Life & Health Coach.

At present I am training to become a certified Primordial Sound Meditation teacher with chopra.com.

Let me know if you have questions - I am always happy to help when I can.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Namaste, Maja

I knew nothing about Yoga until starting earlier this year. I love everything! Especially how it has helped me to relax.



A Special Thank You Note

With heartfelt gratitude, I would like to mention my mentor Justine Wheelans who runs the Yoga Sanctuary in Christchurch. I was able to work with Justine from the time before my Yoga teacher training began - preparing, and being able to ask questions was invaluable for a start and beyond. Once I had finished my training we began working together on a weekly basis for about 2 years and Justine's support made all the difference for me to be able to translate what I had learned during the teacher training into practical use for teaching classes. I am deeply grateful to Justine that she was there when I needed it most in order to find my path as a Yoga teacher. I am particularly happy and grateful that I was able to continue and deepen my learning through this mentoring in a traditional one-on-one way - forever grateful! Thank you, Justine! I hope I will be able to support someone in the same way at some point in the future. Namaste, Maja 🙏
