Get to know Maya...
Maya is a self proclaimed "jack of all trades, master of none." A yogi, artist, cyclist, chef, music maker, and life-long student. After receiving her bachelor's degree, she embraced the guidance of family members and began trading dairy commodities and stocks at the Chicago Board of Trade, where she's now teaching yoga.
For years, she worked alongside local traders, interested in the personal aspects of trading, perhaps more so than the markets. She found trading fosters a deep connection to your intuitive voice, fearlessness, and resilience. During these times, yoga class became her sanctuary - A place to cultivate self-trust and wisdom apart from the noise of financial news and market trends.
In 2015 she decided to leave the trading floor and pursue her other "trades." She received her 200 hour yoga teacher certification in Kerala, South India. Travels around India, Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia inspired Maya to study the broad world of yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, as well as cooking. She currently works as a yoga teacher and personal chef. Maya's classes are alignment based, using props and intelligent sequencing to experience familiar poses with awareness and intention. She likes to incorporate the occasional odd and unusual pose to challenge the body and the brain.
