MAYA FIENNES BIOGRAPHY
Macedonian born Maya has combined her talents as a successful classical pianist
and performer with her upbeat personality, culminating in a unique style of yoga
and meditation for modern living. Maya's style of yoga is based on the Kundalini
Yoga tradition, as taught by Yogi Bhajan founder of the 3HO Foundation in 1969.
Her visible philosophy of good health and living with inner peace and confidence,
have made her one of the most in-demand yoga instructors in Europe. Her classes
are fun, uplifting and above all inspirational. In 2009, Maya relocated to
Los Angeles, to share her teaching and further her possibilities as a world
renowned Kundalini yoga teacher and transformational guide.
Maya came to England in the early 1990's to complete her training as a classical
pianist and was soon playing to audiences as diverse as The United Nations
Assembly and members of the Royal Family at private recitals with her dazzling
virtuosity. In 1995, she released her debut album "Cross of Silence" to
critical acclaim, described by Q- Magazine as 'The point where ambient, dance,
world and classical music all meet, at the crossroads of quiet dignity and power'.
Maya's current CD, "Mayaspace", is a fusion of Yoga mantras and music of
chilling beauty. It features guest spots from friends and peers such as Deepak

Having practiced a variety of yoga for years, Maya decided in 2003 to train as a
Kundalini teacher. Maya studied under Shiv Charan Singh at the Karam Kriya School
in London. The name given to Maya at the naming ceremony is Har Bhajan, which
means praise the name of God, Divinity & Infinity, through Sound and Mantra.
Maya therefore feels destined to teach Kundalini with the help of her musical
background. Maya uses her original music in her classes, which she also performs
live in concert. A true performer, Maya takes every opportunity to give her students
the tools for transformation accompanied by a soundtrack for their lives.

productions on several TV channels across Europe.
Maya completed another TV/DVD/CD production in the Summer of 2010 "The Mantras of Kundalini Yoga"
using her own original composed music "Kundalini Mantras" to demonstrate the
power and healing of sound. This production is already featured on TV. This year
Maya is shooting a Yoga for REAL Life series of dvds in Los Angeles, which will also be
featured on TV screens worldwide.
