Our students will tell you, “Yoga makes everything better.” Really. That’s why we say, “Practice and ALL is coming.”

What Our Students Tell Us
“In a world and career where nothing is consistent, I crave the repetitive motions of Ashtanga. Some weeks my work schedule makes practicing a challenge. And some days the poses are easier than others. But I have found that the world outside of yoga it isn’t any different. Some days are easier than others. Yoga has taught me on the tough days to take a slow deep breath just like working through a difficult pose. And for that I’m forever grateful.“
MollyMaya Yoga Student
“Five years ago my husband and I lost over 100 pounds each through what we deemed as a lifestyle change: more veggies, less processed food, and plenty of exercise. We ran. We crunched. We Zumba’d. But it wasn’t until Maya Yoga that I finally found what was missing from my new found wellness: Peace.”
JonathonMaya Yoga Student
“I used to play it so safe in this wild world, but my journey with Maya Yoga and my Ashtanga experience has given me so much confidence! I’ve gained more faith in taking risks and diving into opportunities that I would not have jumped on before.”
