Maya Kowalcyk, 200-hr RYT, B.A., is a yoga instructor, studio owner, Ayurveda specialist, hiker, and mother in Jim Thorpe, PA. Maya has been practicing yoga for 19 years, teaching for 9 years, and leading yoga retreats for 4 years. She completed her 200-hr teacher training in 2007 at The Yoga Loft of Bethlehem, and continues to study a variety of yoga styles, primarily Iyengar yoga. Her own personal practice comes from a combination of yoga methods.
Maya's focus on alignment and her skill at teaching multi-leveled classes has given her the ability to help students of all levels enjoy yoga, especially when on retreat. Beginners will feel comfortable in each class, and be supported with modifications to make poses accessible to all. And advanced yogis will find Maya's classes challenging and rewarding as well. Maya is devoted and grateful to her teachers, Holly Walck and Joan White, and believes that yoga can help you not only transform the physical body, but also alleviate suffering on a mental, emotional, and spiritual level, allowing the practitioner to peel away the layers of the body and mind and move towards one's true self.

The Yoga retreat was a beautiful, enlightened experience in all levels, from relaxing, eating well, sight-seeing, meeting new people. If you are looking for some time to chill, this is the place to go! You will love it! Maya and Maria and the staff had everything done with professionalism, and are attentive to your needs. I enjoyed this vacation retreat thoroughly! I recommend this as something everyone must experience!

Maya and Maria did an amazing job making sure the retreat was a great experience for everyone. The food was great and Villa La Paz was a wonderful location for the retreat. Beautiful accommodations!
~Shirley Stout, 2016
From the moment we arrived in Costa Rica, we felt securé and at home with Maria and her kind and caring family, and with our wonderful yoga teacher, Maya. What followed was 6 days of yoga & meditation surrounded by nature's beauty and monkeys! We enjoyed delicious vegetarian meals, massage and a cocktail or 2 in Tamarindo. It was a wonderful mix of fun, relaxation and yoga. Thank you!
