- Yogacharini Maitreyi


Yogacharini Maitreyi has been immersed in the Yoga life since an early age. She is a Practical Mystic and international teacher who lives in Vancouver in the summer. Maitreyi was given many titles such as Yogacharini ( Guide and Visionary), Yoga Chemmal ( Expert) and Yoga Shiromani (Gem) in India since 1997. She has over 100 published articles in journals and mainstream papers and is a pioneer in simpllifying complex principles.

She has trained many top companies in self management. She has also been a holistic life coach and guide to many CEOs and entrepreneurs.

It gives her immense joy to share the depth of yoga and how the correct approach is very important to create neurological and attitudinal shifts.

Please see her profile at

She will be supported by ayurvedic doctors, staff and vedic scholars.

" Having Maitreyi as a teacher and healer is a unique experience for many reasons. You can feel her deep understanding about mind, body and spirit in a very natural relaxed way and it is easy to access. The tradition of Yoga, Tantra, Ayurveda and Hinduism is deeply rooted in her presence , which define her singular mastery. She also feels like a good friend. She understands how the old wisdom can blend with the current mindset in society, giving students very real tools, in a totally demystified way and out of the usually strict and rigid religious protocols. She's not only a loving person but also inspires others to be in love and create friendly communities . This in my opinion is the very best contribution that can be done : to help individuals to create healthy spaces and supporting social evolution. I'm profoundly thankful to get the chance to learn, talk, laugh and feel with her."
