Maya Devi Georg (ERYT-500, RPYT, RCYT) is a yoga teacher and writer. A native New Yorker living in Germany, she was lucky to have studied extensively with Swami Bua, Swami Jnanand, and Dharma Mittra, as well as having been initiated into many practices by Yogi Gupta (Swami Kailashananda).
Taking the many teachings she received from her teachers she developed, with her partner Chris Kourtinatos, Kenosis Yoga – a deliberate form of yoga asana that is deeply meditative and precise. In Kenosis Yoga each movement and posture is unpackaged in a sequential manner to help prepare students for the next level of practice, rapidly developing the body and mind to go beyond preconceived limitations and attain a true yoga practice.
Teaching since 2002, she has taught throughout North America and Europe in universities and elementary schools, synagogues and community centers, studios, gyms, and conference rooms. She has taught adults, children, seniors, and expectant mother, as well as professional athletes, dancers, and gymnasts, that were recovering from injuries. She has been assisting in teacher trainings since 2004, and began conducting her own trainings in 2009. She continues to teach with her partner all over Europe and the United States.
