Guest yoga teacher

Maija Klamer is an experienced (500hr RYT and 200hr E-RYT) yogateacher and life-artist, born in the Netherlands. She has a professional background in hospitality, event management and festival organization. Creative expression -like music, dancing, singing and writing- has always been an important aspect in her life. During her first encounter with yoga- in 2000 in Amsterdam- Maija experienced a sort of homecoming. She kept coming back to classes and started exploring meditation as well. Between 2008 and 2011 she followed her first yoga teacher trainings and then started teaching Vinyasa, Hatha and Yin-Yang yoga in studio’s, gyms and on yoga holidays. In this period she also attended several Vipassana meditation courses. After some years of teaching and learning all kinds of yoga styles, Maija felt the urge for a deeper exploration of the roots of yoga and tantric philosophy. With the yoga industry in the west growing rapidly, it seemed to become more body-focused and somewhat superficial. Maija’s wish to find an alternative for that brought her to India where she found the school of traditional tantra yoga. She is a continuing student of yoga, tantra, ayurveda and shamanic wisdom. In her classes she taps into the elements of nature, taking you on a journey through body, mind and soul, inviting prana (pure life-energy) to flow into your system. Encouraging people to live a free and fulfilling life while contributing to a healthy environment is her core motivation. In her close connection with nature she finds a deep source of inspiration. With her moving to Costa Rica and teaming up with Montezuma Yoga, she expresses the next step to follow her dharma (life purpose). Massage Maija is also trained in Ayurvedic massage and bodywork. She offers the following treatments:• ayurvedic relaxing massage (with organic oil) • traditional Indian walking massage

FOLLOW YOUR HEART

Be gentle. Take breaths. Move into stillness.
Yoga is the practice of softening, so you can connect and listen to your inner voice.

LOVE WHAT YOU DO
