Maja Zilih (E-RYT 500), a founder of Maya Yoga and Athens Yoga Center, holds classes, teacher training programs on basic and advanced levels, workshops, seminars, and yoga retreats in Austria and Greece.

Maja is a passionate explorer of yoga as a process of growth. Her life and teachings are dedicated to connecting with people with devotion and care., while her teaching method combines dynamism with applicable, mindful, and embodied approach to physical movement, respecting the needs of each individual, and inviting them at the same time to unfold their true potential.

She is most interested in ways that physical movement, breath attention, mental observation and yoga philosophy can all be combined to help us navigate through life's challenges more skillfully and more efficiently. She aims at raising an understanding that yoga is here to equip us with strength and strategies that we need in order to unfold the process of healing the relationship with ourselves, with others and with the planet.

Maja's note: The outside world is merely a reflection of our inner state. Increasingly integrating (the seemingly scattered) parts of the self through yoga and other awareness practices, we begin to see the profound connections and interdependence everywhere we look. From the separation dream, we gradually wake up to the fact that our individual spiritual growth is both contributing to, and strongly dependent on the degree of the evolution of the collective. Whether through meditation, mindful asana practice, aware and respectful parenting, acts of self-nurture, being in service to the underprivileged, or through simple random acts of kindness, yoga truly comes alive when the context behind our actions is a desire to contribute to the elevation of the consciousness level of the humanity as a whole.

Maja is a class for itself - you have to experience her - once you have done it, you wish to follow her and her spirit for long. Happy and thankful that I came across her path and have the possibility to be accompanied by her on my way.

Top level Yoga teacher & trainer - unique & wonderful person

She combines both deep technical knowledge, yoga teaching skills through her multi-year experience and spirituality, understanding and promoting yoga as a transformative practice. While she is very advanced teacher in terms of skills and knowledge of yoga philosophy she is also very friendly, spontaneous, open and invests in supporting students and future teachers in their path of changing their lives through yoga. And as her students say, she lives the way she teaches. She walks the talk. Grateful to have met her - and for changing my life!
