About Maya

Maya Fiennes is a force of nature. Her down to earth and simple approach to yoga is built on many years of study and personal practice. Her teachings are based on the very best techniques for the physical as well as spiritual side of yoga, unlocking its secrets to create life changing experiences for her students throughout the world.

Maya Fiennes - Yoga Teacher Training Her in-depth knowledge and passion for yoga has given her the tools to help her students worldwide to deal and cope with the pressures in our everyday lives. If you are experiencing challenges, Maya can help steer you towards an easy to follow practice to help eliminate the problem physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Maya's methods are based on stimulating the powerful centres in the body: the chakras, to identify what blockages her students are experiencing and finding the best yoga practice to address them. Maya believes that our bodies hold the keys to our success and can also set our limitations. Working with the Chakras to decode what our bodies tell us and putting together the answers to unlock our ultimate potential is Maya's specialty. That is what sits at the heart of her philosophy, her passion, her Yoga for Real Life.

Over the last few years Maya has grown far beyond the yoga studio, taking her teachings across various mediums, including TV, 20 DVDs, several CDs, events, workshops, retreats and merchandise. Maya is featured daily on TV in several countries around the world, and her book, "Yoga for Real Life", has been translated into several languages and has already sold several tens of thousands copies worldwide.

Testimonial from a previous Maya Fiennes "Yoga For Real Life" Teacher Training Student

"I successfully completed Maya's Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Programme in 2015 and it has changed my life. It was an amazing journey. Maya really is a pioneer in the yoga field and to be in her presence is an absolute joy. Maya's energy and vitality is contagious, she has such a breadth of knowledge and wisdom and her teaching style is creative, inspiring and uplifting. The course itself was a mixture of lectures, classes, group discussions, practical sessions, personal development exercises and teaching practise sessions. There was always time for fun and new experiences whilst learning with Maya but the course was also in-depth and challenging too with plenty of soul-searching.

Completing the training has given me a focus and strong belief in myself. My mind is more quiet and I have come to terms with my past. I feel energised, happier, healthier and wiser. It has helped me strengthen my relationships, awaken my creativity and feel more balanced than ever before. On top of this it's enabled me to embark upon a new career doing something I love. I started teaching straight away and have not looked back (I have come a long way - before the course I suffered with terrible anxiety and was a nervous wreck speaking in front of even a few people). I am so enjoying spreading the kundalini love Maya style and you will too."

About The "Yoga For Real Life" Teacher Training With Maya Fiennes

The Maya Fiennes "Yoga For Real Life" Teacher Training is suitable for those who want to embark on a career as a yoga teacher, teachers who would like to improve their current skills, as well as yogis who simply would like to deepen their understanding and improve their practice. You will need to have a minimum of two years' experience of practising yoga. Trainees often start as students and then decide to dedicate themselves more seriously to the study, investigation and propagation of yoga. Some have had experience elsewhere and have reached a level where they feel ready to consider teaching. Others may have no intention of leaving their current work, but simply want to develop the knowledge and ability to confidently guide others in this rewarding practice.

The Training comprises the general study of Kundalini yoga and Maya Fiennes' "Yoga for Real Life". Pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation practice will also form a daily part of the practice. There will be a variety of modules covering such themes as Anatomy and Physiology, Yoga history and Philosophy and groupings and sequencing techniques. Where applicable out-of-house specialists will run the modules.

Teaching will be both practical and theoretical on a group and individual basis, and there is a requirement for you to spend your own time reading and keeping a yoga diary. We will work to a full and exciting schedule.

This is the approximate daily schedule and is subject to change:

  • 7:00AM–8:00AM Breakfast
  • 8:00AM–9:00AM = Morning Practice with Maya
  • 9:00AM-10:00AM = Training

About The Area

There are plenty of historical and cultural places of interest close to the hotel. Marathon is the legendary site of the battle of Marathon in 490 BC, in which the heavily outnumbered Athenian army defeated the Persians during a historic battle. The "Marathon" race gets its name from the legend of Pheidippides, a Greek soldier and runner who was sent from Marathon to Athens to announce that the Persians had been defeated in the Battle of Marathon.

On a more modern and commercial note, from the hotel’s beach you can take the scenic route and walk along the beach path all the way to the nearby town of Nea Makri, where you will find banks, shops, restaurants, bars, as well as an outdoor summer cinema.

            Getting Here

            The hotel address is Golden Coast, Paralia Marathonos, 19007 Attica, Greece and you can get here via the following transportation methods: -

            (1) The easiest way to get from the airport to the hotel is by taking a taxi directly from the Arrival level. It is roughly a 40-minute drive and the approximate cost is 40.

            (2) Public transportation as follows:

            (a) Metro: Take the metro at the airport and get off at Pallini station. The ticket is 8 per person. Go to the street above ground, Marathon Avenue, and get the regional bus to Marathon. Buses run every hour on the hour from Athens center. It takes roughly 50-60 minutes to get to Marathon. After you pass Nea Makri (the nearest town to Marathon) this bus will drop you off 800m away from the main gate of the hotel (walking distance). The bus stop is called Golden Coast and tickets cost 4.10 each.

            (b) Bus route 1: There are blue buses leaving from the airport arrivals terminal to Athens. You will get off at Pallini cross and follow the same instructions as above.

            (c) Bus route 2: There is a bus to Rafina from the airport arrivals terminal (these are different than the blue busses to Athens). It’s approximately 20 minutes from Rafina to Marathon and you can take a taxi. The cost will be approximately 20.
