About the Teacher

Maya Fiennes: from classical pianist to transformational guru.

Macedonian born Maya has combined her talents as a successful classical pianist and performer with her upbeat personality, culminating in a unique style of yoga and meditation for modern living. Maya’s revolutionary style of yoga is based on the Kundalini Yoga tradition. Her visible philosophy of good health and living with inner peace and confidence, have made her one of the most in-demand yoga instructors in Europe. Her classes are fun, uplifting and above all inspirational.

Maya has grown far beyond the yoga studio, taking her teachings across various mediums, including TV, DVD, CD, events, workshops, retreats and merchandise.

In 2009, Maya relocated to Los Angeles, to share her teaching and further her possibilities as a world-renowned Kundalini yoga teacher and transformational guide.

Maya uses her original music in her classes. A true performer, Maya takes every opportunity to give her students the tools for transformation accompanied by a soundtrack for their lives.

 “To be in her presence, and to feel her spirit, her energy, and her teaching is an extraordinary experience” - Deepak Chopra

“I just finished Maya’s book and I want to congratulate her because I think it’s the most interesting, happy, inspirational yoga book I ever read concerning the problems of REAL LIFE.”  - Gina (Ioanna) Zohiou; Corfu, Greece

“Doing yoga with Maya is inspirational, energizing, sexy, and it gives me joy.” - Elle Macpherson

When you walk out of Maya Fiennes’ class, we can pretty much guarantee you will have a goofy grin on your face. You won’t know what hit you, but you’ll know it must have been something special. Your smile just might span from ear to ear, and you will be feeling as light as air. Warning: This feeling will cause you to feel like you could conquer the world, and you know what? You probably could. Who knew kundalini could put you in such a state?! Be ready to laugh, smile, dance, shake out your toxins, breathe deeper than you ever have before, and ultimately, push your ego aside and throw your inhibitions to the wind. Maya herself is a joy to be around. Every time you look at her, she is smiling. But the smile goes deeper than just her lips curling upward: Maya smiles with her eyes and her soul. She is vibrant and glowing, and you cannot help but be mesmerized by her. So go to class with an open heart, an open mind – all the while expecting a good soul shake up rather than a sweaty, fitness-oriented class.  – Alignyo Yoga Blog (

Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you so much for helping to save my life – literally. I was prescribed antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications beginning in 2003. Fast forward to 2008 – the meds stopped working, and began working against me. I became suicidal, and had to abruptly quit cold-turkey those medications. Since then, I have been utilizing your DVD “Kundalini Yoga to Detox and De-Stress” at least 5 times a week. My brain is healing much faster than expected, and I am coming more and more into harmony with with the Universe. Your DVD and your teachings have brought me back from the brink of disaster and I am forever grateful.  - David; Seattle, WA (2009)
