Maya Yoga

Maya Yoga is a system of yoga dedicated to serving the needs of the individual. Maya Yoga Philosophy holds that yoga represents the spirit in action, and that each pose is a unique expression of one’s physical and spiritual being. The practice of Maya Yoga involves a dynamic form of flowing vinyasa yoga poses with focus on structural alignment and conscious breathing. The intention of the practice is to learn to be truly present in the moment and to experience the connection between Spirit and oneself.

What to expect

During a Maya Yoga class, students can expect a dynamic and physically fulfilling practice that is tailored to their personal needs. The instructors offer physical adjustments and philosophical insights while encouraging students to listen to their own inner guidance. Students focus on breath and alignment as a means of keeping their attention in the present moment.


Maya Yoga was developed by renowned modern yogis Nicki Doane and Eddie Modestini with the intention of offering a creative and dynamic style of yoga that takes into account human beings' unique variability. Maya Yoga draws on the teachings of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and B.K.S. Iyengar, viewing yoga as both a physical practice and a spiritual path.
