Get to know the people of Delight Yoga

Maximiliaan Cohen

Astanga Led

In 2012 Max decided to quit his job and move to Manila to travel and work. Just before he left for Manila, he discovered meditation. Amazed by the positive results in his daily life, his first Vinyasa yoga class soon followed. He loved moving the body in a flow and the awareness on the breath.

Exploring different types of yoga practices, he felt deeply connected to Astanga Yoga. He was not able to find a proper teacher and yoga school in Manila that offered Mysore style practice. He felt drawn to the Astanga Yoga School Amsterdam after online research and decided to move back to Amsterdam in 2015 to practice with Claudia Pradella and Eva Ugolini. 


Several months after his return in Amsterdam, he attended his first 10 days Vipassana retreat. This led to a curiosity to explore more of yoga and he decided to study with Katiza Satya and Kevin Sahaj. After completing the Basic Teacher Training under their guidance, he started to work as a studio host for Delight Yoga to be fully immersed within the Delight Yoga community and to nurture a spontaneous interest to start teaching Astanga. He committed to assisting Eva in her classes and he assisted the Basic Teacher Training given by Claudia and Eva. He has also completed the 100 hour Astanga Path training with Claudia and Eva. 


In 2018 he has started to study Restorative Yoga with Adelene Cheong. He discovered how essential it is in the overstimulated society we live in to practice conscious deep relaxation. 


His classes are an extension of his own practice. He loves to connect personally with students and considers his classes a way to share the practice, being each other's teacher and student.
