    Maya learned to meditate while working as the Chief Technical Officer of an early stage startup. Not only did Vedic Meditation keep her stress levels at bay in a chaotic, fast-paced environment, it also improved her life in many ways outside of work. Out of a desire to share this amazing technique with others, she left her job to train to become a teacher.
    Born with a kinetic body, Maya is always on the move. You'll find her climbing aerial silks and rocks, balancing on her hands, and biking all over the city. She shares her love of movement with others by teaching yoga. Maya feels most alive helping others stress less, enjoy life more, and realize their fullest potential.
    She lives in NYC with her two tween-aged daughters.


    Vedic Meditation is an effortless, enjoyable, and easy form of meditation, which provides proven and profound benefits. It’s practiced sitting comfortably with the eyes closed while gently thinking a specific sound, or mantra, to naturally settle the mind and body into a state of deep rest. It can be learned by anyone and practiced self-sufficiently forever.
    Following meditation, the mind is calmer, clearer, and more alert. With regular meditation, people find their energy levels increase and they can achieve more with less effort. As a result, work, play, and relationships are easier and more rewarding.
