Resting Frog Yoga Studio

Resting Frog Yoga Instructors

Mayama (Marjut Vahtola)Mayama (Marjut Vahtola) owns and operates the studio.

Mayama has been teaching yoga for 20 years. She offers yoga classes and also private appointments in all aspects of yoga including relaxation, postures, breathing, and inward journeying. The question for her has always been "what's really going on here?". That question has taken her to study energy healing such as reiki and therapeutic touch, and to studies in tai chi and chi kung, and to explore closer to home, to an inward search for peace and absolute truth.

Mayama is currently a student of Maharishi Krishnananda Ishaya and is a teacher of the Ishayas' Ascension. It is a series of simple, profoundly effective meditation techniques that allow one to rise beyond stress and self-defeating beliefs.
