Get inspired and inspire others through YOGA

Start of our next Teacher Training 200h with Maja Zilih: March 2018

Maja’s teacher training programs are international programs of highest standards,

with different physical needs.

At the same time you will learn to infuse your lessons with inspiring and elevating spiritual themes from the yogic philosophy
that you will study, so that in every class you assist your students on a true path of inner transformation.

Studying yoga with Maja means

  • ever-evolving in your personal practice and teaching skills,
  • always expanding your knowledge of the body and mind,
  • continuously deepening your spiritual insights,
  • increasing your capacity for intuition, sensitivity and awareness of what your students need,

Maja Zilih – Primary director - mayayoga.at


Maja is a passionate explorer of yoga as a process of growth. She is most interested in ways that physical alignment, breath attention, mental observation and yoga philosophy can all be combined to help us navigate through life's challenges more skillfully and more efficiently. She ims at raising an understanding that yoga is here to equip us with strength and strategies that we need in order to unfold the process of healing the relationship with ourselves, with others and with the planet.

Maja's teaching method combines effort and dynamism with mindful approach to asana, along with detailed alignment strategies in a comprehensive and applicable way. She always inspires students to discover and unleash their true potential.


Maja holds teacher training programs, alignment and therapy workshops, seminars on teaching and sequencing advanced poses, classes and yoga retreats in Austria and Greece.

Maja's note: The outside world is merely a reflection of our inner state. Increasingly integrating (the seemingly scattered) parts of the self through yoga practices, we begin to see the profound connections and interdependence everywhere we look. From the separation dream we gradually wake up to the fact that our individual spiritual growth is both contributing to, and strongly dependent on the degree of the evolution of the collective. Whether through meditation, mindful asana practice, aware and respectful parenting, acts of self-nurture, being in service to the underprivileged, or through simple random acts of kindness, yoga truly comes alive when the context behind our actions is a desire to contribute to the elevation of the consciousness level of the humanity as a whole.


Priv. Doz. Dr. Andreas Janata – 6 hours of anatomy


Andi is cardiologist and emergency physician.
He did his training in the 
Department for Emergency Medicine, AKH Wien, and in the Hanusch Krankenhaus,
where he is still working. A two year scientific sabbatical 
took him to Pittsburgh,
where he first practiced Yoga in 2010 at Amazing 
Yoga Pittsburgh, he took his teacher training there in 2011.

Since then he is practicing Yoga and Meditation on a regular base,
he is continiously amazed about the power of yoga for his own wellbeing as for health in general. 

"For me it is no contradiction to be a scientist and go deep into Yoga practice at the same time, because Yoga is an old, precise and complex ancient science. Knowledge of anatomy helps to gain a modern understanding of an old healthy practice. It is my aim to add my medical experience to train new yoga teachers, and teach yoga practitioners interested in using yoga to maintain or restore health." 

Together with Petra Janata it will be a weekend of anatomy and applied anatomy in asana.


Carlos Pomeda – 18 hours of philosophy and meditation


Carlos is a world renowned teacher of yoga philosophy and meditation. Formerly known as Swami Gitananda, Carlos received traditional training in all aspects of yoga during his 35 years of practice, 18 of which he spent as a monk (swami) of the Saraswati order, including 9 years in India at the Siddha Yoga ashram, studying and practising under Swami Muktananda and Gurumayi Chidvilasananda.

During this time he learned the various systems of Indian Philosophy, immersed himself in the practice of yoga and became one of the senior monks of the tradition — teaching meditation and philosophy to tens of thousands of students around the world. He combines this experience and traditional training with his academic background, which includes two master's degrees: one in Sanskrit from U.C. Berkeley (where he has taught) and the other in Religious Studies, from U.C. Santa Barbara.

As a teacher, Carlos is known for his love of the Indian yoga traditions, his insight, his humor, his profound empathy with his audiences and his ability to transmit the deepest scriptural teachings in a way that is clear, meaningful and applicable. Studying with Carlos is an enjoyable and enlightening experience.

  1. Written testimonials

"Maja is a brilliant teacher and a true inspiration, a source of deep knowledge and an example to aspire to. A beautiful balance of body and mind, movement and breath, earth and soul! And together with the rest of the team of exceptional teachers they offer a first-rate and well-rounded program that focuses on all the necessary aspects; the practice of yoga (asanas), philosophy, lesson planning and classroom skills, self-development, anatomy, alignment and how to practice and teach both effectively and safely (extremely important and unfortunately often underestimated and overlooked).

I definitely recommend this teachers training course to anyone who wishes to grow his/her yoga practice and dive into this magical world, even if they are not quite sure if they want to make the leap towards teaching or not. A life-enhancing (if not downright life-changing) experience! Thank you Maja and all you amazing yogis! Love and light to you all!!" - Wanda Pierri, 2014

"I signed up for this teacher training in order to get to know more about the rich tradition of yoga. The environment, the program itself and the teachers' approach all exceeded my expectations. Everyone's offer of knowledge, the educational material we received as well as all the guidance was only the beginning. I continue learning every day through my practice and the tools we were given during the teacher training and through the community of teachers and students. The most important gift of this training is perhaps the confidence and faith in our power.

Teaching comes so early in this training that it leaves no room for doubt. We started teaching from the very first steps of the training which filled me with confidence and put me in the mood for more knowledge and experience. The teacher training is an invaluable experience whichever reasons initially bring you to it." Tina Tsaleza, 2014

"I first went to a training intuitively after years of yoga practice. Today I am grateful to my teachers for the body & soul transformation I went through. I am full of confidence and responsibility around the infinite science called YOGA. I have already started teaching. I wish to other fellows to take this wonderful journey to confidence, empowerment, healing and lastly, joy. I want to thank my experienced teachers for transmitting their knowledge with lovingly and respectfully. These words come out from my soul. I am thankful and grateful now and forever." – Ioanna Loudarou, 2014

"A unique and special experience for your body and mind which fills you with confidence regarding your own possibilities. The teachers were characterized by their responsibility and their special ability to transmit knowledge. A very special journey into the inner world." – Eleni Demeka, 2014

"A yoga teacher training is not only about learning how to teach. Apart from the complete knowledge on the topic, it is an invitation to self-discovery. The training highlights this holistic approach about what is yoga, what is to teach yoga and to practice, not only in a class but in your life as well." - Irida Mathe, 2014

"I don't know how to express the overwhelming gratitude I feel because, except for the basic training I feel that I have received so much "food" for the future!! Everything begins from now on! I feel the yoga center as a true family that embraced me right from the start, which is due to the environment that Maja creates and of course that is transmitted to the rest of the center" - Eleni T.

"A multidimensional, strong and inspiring training in every way!" 
"There is an ever-growing feeling that the deeper I go as a student, the more I desire to invite the world to discover their own path of yoga." - Anna P.

 "Being at the teacher training program is a very unique experience, more of a life-training. Obligations and demands only help build faith, molding a stronger character. Faith grows stronger in any direction that the student choses" - Yiannis Plitsos

"It doesn't matter whether one wants to teach yoga professionally or not. Whoever loves and enjoys yoga should attend the training to dive deeply into the Indian philosophy and to find answers to life questions. The training elevates the spiritual practice to the highest" - Dimitris T.

Maja’s note

"Students gain knowledge, skills, confidence and an international certification needed to start teaching yoga. But our vision is greater than that. We aim to empower students to discover the vast potential within themselves. To give them tools and inspiration not to do yoga, but to Live Yoga. The most remarkable yoga teachers in the world are those who actually live the teachings of Yoga. This is why our training is demanding, involving plenty of study. This is why we consider in necessary to work with the mind and why the program involves frequent meditation time all throughout the course, as meditation is elementary to living and teaching yoga.
During the course the students dive deeply into the study of yoga and of the Self, to experience a true shift towards health and balance in their lives. The inner-balance and serenity they gradually gain will then express itself in all their relationships, including their relationship to practice, to teaching yoga, and to their future students.
Hence as much as it is about teaching yoga, this course is also about self-discovery, development and transformation."
