Dancing yogini, Hindu tantrism and traditional tantric yoga teacher, researcher, and nomadic traveller.
Born in the sunny lands of Tuscany (Italy) in the month of Ashwin –October in the Indian calendar – in the era of Kali (Kali Yuga), Maya was initiated to the tantric Kaula lineage by her first teacher Swami Anand Guptananda in India in 2000. She was then introduced to the Śākta tantric tradition based on the Living Goddess by her second guru Swami Shri Param Eswaran. Maya was awarded the Tantric Yoga Teacher diploma under the Yoga Alliance 200 HR international scheme by her teacher Swami Shri Bhagawan. Maya is the only teacher in Italy to teach the Sacred Tantric Ritual Touch – a tantric ritual that combines a massage with the sounds of sacred mantras, donated to Maya by her guru during her training in India.
In 2007 Maya founded Devi Tantra Yoga – the first Hindu tantrism school in Italy. Since then Maya has been teaching Śākta tantrism, traditional tantric yoga, the sacred tantric ritual touch, sound healing, feminine Devi Yoga and mystic and meditative dances through annual training courses, workshops and international retreats in Europe and India.
