I cannot thank Maja enough for the course on Chakra balancing and the Tibetian rites, so beautifully curated and so much more than I expected. Maja is the most gracious guide and teacher - her strength, love, and respect for us students was palpable, I felt totally safe with Maja's guidance and I know my life is forever enriched due to it. Thank you so much and I cannot wait to do the course again, I highly recommend it to anyone who desires well-being.


Maja's classes are always fun and relaxing. She's very attentive to the needs of the students whether they are at beginner or advanced levels, always ensuring the well-being and comfort of everyone and positively encouraging. I like Maja's approach to teach yoga from a holistic perspective, not just as a physical health practice, but also incorporating the emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects offered by yoga practice.

Thank you Maja for your care, guidance, wisdom, and generosity throughout the 5 Tibetan Rites and Chakra Balancing Course! I enjoyed the course very much.  Your patience and insights, helpful tips, and encouragement were greatly helpful for me to develop my own program and achieve balance in my life. This course was a gift that arrived at just the time I needed it.


I have enjoyed a lot having Maja as a yoga teacher. I felt good and relaxed after all her classes as she makes a strong focus on breathing and relaxation. She always incorporates the spiritual aspect of yoga in her practice and it helped me to develop an awareness of myself. I have attended her Sankalpa workshop where I've learned how to listen to my intuition and find my deep and heartfelt desire. I can't thank Maja enough for her kindness, warm smile, and support throughout the years!

Marion Pavé

Thanks so much for the Sankalpa Workshop, Maja. My wife and I really enjoyed it.
The workshop had a lot to offer and we got a lot out of it! We both left feeling energized and ready to put into practice what we learnt! It helped us to create clarity for us on our path as entrepreneurs.

John Davey

Each week Maja lovingly prepares a sacred space for the group to practise quietude and meditation - I always feel warmly welcomed and enjoy to share in the beautiful stillness that descends during these sessions. I always leave feeling somewhat more empowered by the experience of group mediation.

Marg Kerkvliet

Maja's guidance had been nothing short of inspiring and enlightening. We enjoyed a 4-day Yoga & Meditation retreat with Maja and her gentle style made us feel very welcome and was very encouraging for our individual paths. We cannot thank her enough for her hospitality and kindness. Maja has a natural way of connecting with and lifting up people to feel energized and relaxed! Our time with Maja remains one of the happiest memories from our entire trip!

Love the Yoga with Maja on the beach facing the rising sun and taking in the fresh air - magic! I am very happy with Maja's instructions and how she guides us with her voice while also showing the postures by example.


Maja is a beautiful soul, I practiced with her for a few months and loved every session. She has a kind and thoughtful way of teaching that makes the classes a peaceful place to connect.

Meditation offers a calming refuge, without the pressure of doctrine or agenda - simply a place to be ...and find peace.

Thank you for your wonderful beach yoga classes which I immensely enjoyed!

What actually is holistic Yoga? As Ayurvedic Doctor Jigar Gor puts it: "Yoga is not about touching your toes. It is about what you learn on the way down." The word Yoga means union - the union of body, mind, and spirit. Yoga is not a physical practice as such, it is a way of conscious living. Yoga postures, or Asanas in Sanskrit, make only one-eighth of the 8-fold Yogic path 'The 8 Limbs of Yoga' described in the Yoga Sutras by Patanjali about 2000 years ago. Patanjali boils it down in Sutra 1.2 by saying: "A mind free from all disturbances is Yoga". Find out what Yoga has in store to make your life holistic, healthy, and harmonious... and happier, of course! always - more in class!
