Maya is from Houston, TX and has a background in dance and movement. She attended SUNY Purchase and graduated in 2012 with a BFA. After college she danced and traveled to the Mediterranean, Caribbean and Alaska with Princess Cruises before returning to New York City to continue pursuing dance and Pilates. Having a dance background helped ignite her interest in Pilates and in January of 2015, she was directed to Alycea Ungaro's Real Pilates in NYC. She later joined their teacher training program that May. Maya fell in love with the way that Pilates challenges the body and mind and in turn, likes to give a challenging workout that is detailed to each person. She's thrilled to be joining Westside Pilates as an instructor.
