Malaya, a.k.a. Maya, is a Certified GYROKINESIS® trainer based in Tokyo, Japan. Her background in dance led her to the Gyrokinesis methodology in 2001 and she has trained with Master Trainers Kojiro Imada and Akemi Inoue, and Authorized Master Trainers Sylvia Frosali and Anke Hauerstein (Level 1 and Level 2 Beginner). Maya has also trained directly under Juliu Horvath, the creator of the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®, completing both the Gyrokinesis Rejuvenation Course and Level 2 Course. She has studied ballet (RAD Advanced 1 certified), pilates and yoga extensively, and has completed an anatomy course for yoga instructors taught by Yvonne Jaques.

Maya enjoys helping others work toward their wellness goals and awaken to new movement possibilities. She herself has experienced the wider range of motion attainable through Gyrokinesis exercises, and likes how it brings strength, stability and grace to both her dancing and everyday movement.
