Maitri Shakti Gold is a devoted and experienced teacher certified in Kundalini Yoga & Meditation specialising in Addiction Behaviour.
She had the honour of training with the well-known Sat Dharam Kaur and Gabor Mate in 2015 and Carolyn Cowan more recently in 2020.
Maitri has been practising many styles of Yoga and Meditation techniques before becoming a teacher herself, including Kundalini, Iyengar, Jivan Mukti, Restorative, Yin and Dru Yoga; exploring the art of mindfulness from the Zen Buddhist teaching of Thich Nhat Hanh and deepening her experience with 5 Rhythms which is a form of active meditation created by Gabrielle Roth.
Her interest in personal evolution brings a sense of curiosity and innovation to what she shares with her students. Her strength is to be committed to maintaining regular personal training to experience new techniques and offering the best service according to the different needs of her students and patients.
Offered services are group and private sessions utilising kundalini yoga for beginners, body alignment and support with addiction-preventing relapses.
In her eleven years of teaching experience, Maitri has offered service mainly privately (one on one), retreats, yoga studios, corporate, rehabilitation centres and charities.
Besides yoga, Maitri is an Ayurvedic nutritionist, health coach, reiki healer, sound healer (Chinese wind gong) and metamorphic touch practitioner.
Kundalini yoga has been the most transformative tool she has come across in her journey of self-discovery through all the various disciplines she practised and trained on, for the personal experience it gave her to inspire others on the same path.
It is her wish that every living being, of any age, experience using these tools to heal themselves and to celebrate the infinite potential and truth that lies within each of us.
Maitri's yoga sessions are a unique experience. These have been the only sessions where my body finally started to heal, recover and grow stronger. In a very safe environment, you will soon become aware that it is not about being perfect but about precision. Her continuous curiosity, explorations and life experiences provide you with a space where you will feel comfortable discussing any topic, questions or doubts that one encounters in life every now and then. Highly recommended.

It was almost 4 years ago, I was coming out from a heavy drug addiction when I met Maitri and Kundalini yoga. I started practicing every week and I liked it. I never did much yoga in my life before, but Kundalini is a different sensation and it was perfect for me. since I started I never stop and when I don't do it I m looking for it. I'm completely out of drug now, in my mind there is no more, also because of mediation, kundalini yoga and Maitri. Teacher is important.

From the very first moment, I felt a connection with Maitri and her teaching style. She speaks softly, letting her words carry wisdom and encouragement. She moves gracefully, making strenuous exercises seem natural and effortless. She radiates elegance, acting as a beautiful example for others to live in truth and simplicity. May her warm loving energy keep expanding to touch every heart on this planet.

Maitri is an incredible teacher and guide. It's hard to put into words my gratitude for having these sessions with Maitri for now over 6 months. Our sessions make me feel like I am being wrapped in the arms of the great mother. The work is soothing, nurturing, beautiful and divine. Maitri is incredibly gentle but also knows how to push me when I need that push. She allows my body to go beyond the limits I have held due to fear. I feel a love and appreciation of my body again because of my work with Maitri. I work with her once a week over video calls and it carries me through the week. Thank you Maitri, for your guidance, love and support. I am forever grateful to you.
