Maayan’s introduction to Bikram yoga came from a very persistent friend. Her first class in 2010 with Georgia Balligian won her over and made this practice a necessary part of her life. She went to teacher training in fall 2011 in Los Angeles, and went on to teach in Michigan and Miami before returning to teach at her home studio at Bikram Yoga NYC. Maayan hopes to pass her love for the practice and discipline on to her students and always teaches with energy and a smile. Through her practice she has been able to find more balance in her life. The yoga has given her a sense of strength and stability that she hasn’t experienced from any other sport or activity and the intensity of the practice has helped to make her feel more grounded and focused in all aspects of her life.
