VARIETY AND EXPOSURE to many cultures and people influence Matan's yoga practice and teaching in many ways.
He was born in El Salvador, and has lived in three continents, exposing him to a rich variety of cultures, human behaviors, languages, methods of movement, and relationships. This diverse experience manifests itself in his approach and teaching.
16+ YEARS OF PRACTICING YOGA: Matan's teaching merges Vijnana, Vinyasa, and Iyengar yoga, applied sciences and Somatic education. His repertoire of specialities and methods continue to evolve as he pursues further studies.
12+ YEARS OF TEACHING WORLDWIDE: Matan is well-known internationally and regularly travels to work and teach in festivals, universities, studios, and dance companies worldwide.
ENJOY CHANGE AND MOVE WITH JOY AND FREEDOM
MOVEMENT, SELF-STUDY, AND MINDFULNESS are the guiding principles for Maya's practice and teaching.
In connecting to the breath and the body on the mat, Maya is always digging deeper to find ways that the practice can be understood and exercised off the mat in our daily life.
13+ YEARS OF PRACTICING YOGA: Coming from a dance and gymnastics background, Maya was immediately drawn to Vinyasa yoga. The rhythm of the flow is a conduit to a more profound internal space.
7+ YEARS OF TEACHING: Maya was trained at Laughing Lotus NYC with the inspiring Bryn Chrisman and Stacey Brass (co-owners of YOGAMAYA in NYC). Her classes are fun, with intelligent sequencing and balance between dynamic movement and quiet meditation.
