Maya Magennis

Maya Magennis is a yoga educator, meditation teacher, and wellness leader living in Los Angeles, CA. She is best known for her clarity, attention to detail, and compassionate approach. Born and raised on Kauai, she spent her formative years running, jumping, and practicing cartwheels with abandon. Her formal movement training began with ballet, which she studied for over 15 years, and since then Maya has spent much of her time exploring the connection between my body and mind. She became intrigued with yoga as an undergraduate student at Duke University, and yoga and meditation became Maya's support system as she entered the fast-paced, high-stress world of investment banking in the early years of her career.

Teaching was always her calling, but it took many years and a lot of self-work to embrace her role as a teacher. Maya loves to simplify complex topics to make them easily digestible by all. She sees the physical practice of yoga as an entry point to better understand how we relate to ourselves and the world around us and believes her job as a teacher is to remind you that you already have the answers you are looking for. It’s just a matter of listening.
