Lilamaya (Liliana Galvis)

Liliana was born in Bogota, Colombia, South America. She moved to Canada at the age of 15 where she studied and later established herself as a fitness professional. She studied at the University of Ottawa followed by training in sports therapy specializing in massage and remedial bodywork at Raworth College of Natural and Sports Therapies, in Surrey, England. Determined to learn more, in 2009 Liliana immersed herself in the studies of Ayurveda (The ancient Hindu science of health and medicine). Yoga and Pilates were a natural progression for Liliana after being an instructor, dancer, personal trainer and educator. Ayurveda (from the Sanskrit word 'yurveda', meaning  'yu', life, health, combined with 'veda', knowledge, lore) is an integral part of the great system of Vedic knowledge - which states that all universe is"ONE SELF", and that the key to cosmic knowledge lies within our own minds and hearts.                                                                                               Liliana's Ayurvedic training took place at The Art of Living North American ashram situated in Quebec, Canada, one of only a select few institutions in the Americas that offer traditional and practical training in this ancient discipline. Initially trained in Hatha yoga, Liliana has been studying and following a series of different practices combined with remedial bodywork for 12 years both in Canada and England.    Liliana is known for her clear communication skills that she employs in her classes and her retreats as well as on television.   She has worked professionally as a co-host for the internationally acclaimed fitness TV show, "Kardio knockout", which aired in over 150 different countries around the globe.  Amongst many other hobbies, she enjoys photography and writing. She currently freelances as a writer for Yoga Magazine based in London (UK) along with a variety of health and wellness publications in Canada.  Focusing more on a holistic approach to her teaching style, she has merged different disciplines of the east and west into a powerful and challenging vinyasa flow class which can be adapted and modified depending on the level of the participant yogi. Her love for movement and wellness continues to develop and her practice grows and evolves with each experience along the journey of life.
