Meeting angels such as yourself have changed my life from a very negative, pessimistic person with little to no hope, To a person who can finally see the beauty and love this world has to offer. Thank you for sharing your incredible gifts of love and inspiration and so much more with the rest of this world. Thanks again for your prayers and assistance.

Thank You so much for the absolutely magical motherhood ceremony you hosted for me. It was better than I could have ever imagined. Your extra thought and care that you took the extra effort to give was just perfect. I truly couldn't have asked for a more perfect experience. The ceremony you gave me and the yoga semesters gave me such peace at the end of my pregnancy and in my labor. Thank you for assisting me along the way!

I had my first devadance experience with Maalika.  I did not know what to expect, but I was willing to go beyond for spiritual growth.  The transformation that took place in that two hours has changed my daily conscious.  I have more self-esteem, more confident in my every step and I am able to let go of insecuities and fears easier than before.  There is something very tribal that happens during the dance.  Maalika took us through a very intense "letting go" period where we threw our egos out and became spiritual beings for the remainder of the dance.  If you are ready to lift your spirit into another level, this is highly recommended.  What I released physically, mentally, and spiritually in that two hours of dance transformed my life forever.  Thanks Maalika!!!!

Thank you soo much for this incredible experience! I'm so thankful and words can't truly express what I feel for you! The oneness I feel after the 10 day goddess intensive gave me so much peace and strength to work through my obstacles!

- Sarasota, FL

I wanted to write and say Thank You again for our time together. None of the fears that I had have ever come back…not even a trace of them. The private yoga therapy session with you was quite amazing.

- Sarasota, FL

My dearest Maalika, I just wanted you to know how good I feel in body and spirit after our work together! When I walk into the Breathing Space I feel so peaceful. This is really something special to be able to be here, thank you for the fabulous private sessions! I have really cleared through some things and feel more confident with moving in the right direction.

- Sarasota, FL

Maalika's classes leave me feeling rejuvinated and completely at peace.  She has been so encouraging and helpful. When it comes to positions that I am doing incorrectly she takes the time to explain the concept and then she patiently demonstrates the pose.   I encourage anyone who has not had the opportunity to take a class with Maalika to do so.  She is passionate and enthusiastic about living yoga and you can see that she is living proof of the positive transformation that can happen in your life as well.  Thank you, Maalika!

-Daytona Beach, FL

I am very grateful to Maalika Shay for successfully guiding me to open up from my repressed, emotional state. You are a beautiful and powerful Dakini!!!

-Sarasota, FL

Thank you so much for the beautiful mini retreat.  You were so lovely while you led us in all the stretches and breathing, and you really presented the vegetarian food in such a creative, delicious way. It was a charming delightful day in a beautiful space with you leading us.  The white walls and abundance of candles and flowers are so calming. I felt very lucky and blessed to be there. !

- Sarasota, FL

I am very grateful to you, Maalika, for the powerful effect you had on me with the trance dance!

- Bradenton, FL

Maalika Shay puts her all into everything she does and this includes a great deal of expertise coming from years of study and walking the Path. The DeviDance experience weaves in many spiritual and cultural traditions that work one to a point of primal release while keeping high focus. From a building place of Trust, the child within was released, and opened me into a trance state.

- Sarasota, FL

Every benefit both physically and mentally have been apparent after just such a short time of working privately with you. Amazing.

- Sarasota, FL

My experiences with Maalika Shay have been those of love, nurturing and a commitment to health and wellness.  Her facials are a wonderful way to treat yourself to a little bit of Heaven on Earth and her private yoga sessions will leave you inspired and wanting more.  I love Maalika!

- Sarasota, FL

Maalika is so talented; she has brought a new world of color and life into my own life, through dance and yoga and by just being herself.  What a great soul!!!

- Gainesville, FL

I wanted to thank you so much for sharing your love, energy, and positive attitude with your yoga students. I often come to your class with make-believe stress, fear, and worry. However, after each class, I can only think of Love and how beautiful life is. So THANK YOU for being you!

- Boulder, Colorado

 It is with pleasure that I submit a referral for Maalika Shay.  I was so lucky to be introduced to her Yogalates class. I had never practiced Yoga before and will admit I was a little hesitant when I took my first class.  I have to say that, if I hadn't had the "best" instructor, I may not have continued with yoga.  Her constant coaching with breathing and movements helped me to relax and enjoy the class.  Maalika is so knowledgeable in all phases of Yoga/Pilates and the people in Sarasota are missing her! 

-Sarasota, FL

I had so much fun at the DeviDance! It was an amazing time for me! Thank you so much, Maalika!

-Sarasota, FL

Keep up the wonderful work you are doing! You are so very outstanding and twice as beautiful a person as anything else. Do NOT ever change; the world needs many more MAALIKA's...You are truly a joy.

-Sarasota, FL

I would like to thank you for being a great hostess and teacher of yoga trance dance. It was very opening, uplifting, powerful, and unique experience.  I felt wonderfull after participating in this event. It was a good exercise, too. I can still feel the results of the workout in my calves. Ha! Ha! Ha! It was a lot of dancing and jumping at one time. Thanks for all your efforts to create this miracle evening for ALL of us.

-Sarasota, FL

I experienced the most spiritual experience at the dance trance! You are a beautiful soul. You are so in-tune with the  spiritual world. I would love to do the dance trance again, Count me in on it! Thank you, thank you!

-Sarasota, FL

Thank you for all of your efforts in bringing such a sacred experience to us on Saturday night.  I am truly grateful.  I left with such a natural high!

-Sarasota, FL

Wow, What a Great Retreat! Everything was perfect and fabulous. I say “Yes!”-“Yes!”-“Yes!”

-Sarasota, FL

What a beautiful evening you created for such a well attended event! I have done trance dance with Shiva Rea, but last night was much more, it was a very lovely event. You got us into a Trance; the visuals were a nice addition, as well as your voice and the content! I look forward to another rewarding experience!

-Sarasota, FL

No matter what you 'do' to us, I always come away uplifted and worked out;  Saturday's class is especially enjoyable for me, with all the movement right away, and the repetition so I could feel my body opening and elongating. Even with the knee stuff I seem to be moving through, there really, really is so much that I can do.  I allow your class to show me that and I feel empowered to keep going forward and eventually overcome. You and your work are a blessing to me. 

-Sarasota, FL

I loved the trance dance!  The visulizations were very powerful and right on.  I loved your music selections and integration of multi-cultural traditions!  It was a wonderful experience.  I felt very peaceful!

-Sarasota, FL

I've been doing yoga for over 20 years and have had many teachers, including renowned ones, and out of all of my experiences, you have been the best. Thank You for making all of us feel so comfortable. Your voice relaxes me so much!

Maalika Shay's radiant presence and extraordinary skills bring health and healing beyond anything I've experienced before. She truly cares for every soul fortunate enough to attend her wondrous, therapeutic offerings.

-Sarasota, FL

I went to see Maalika in for a Rose Quartz facial. From the first words we exchanged until I left her presence, I felt I was receiving the most expert and loving care I could have hoped for. Maalika brought me to a complete sense of relaxation. It wasn't just a facial; she brought me into the experience through our rhythmic breathing. As the daughter of a salon owner and esthetician, I have experienced wonderful facials and skin care treatments. However, not only did my face radiate after the facial with Maalika, but this was an experience that brought complete connection of the mind and body. It enhanced my senses, brought deep healing to my center, and her treatment blessed me with a renewed power, joy, and strength that I still continue to celebrate. It is without any hesitation that I would recommend Maalika and look forward to my next session with her!!

- Sarasota, Fl

I haven't had a headache since August 2nd, over three months after yoga therapy for stress reduction.

I have been taking Private Yoga Therapy with Maalika for years. Maalika is an excellent teacher. She includes restorative therapies, exercise, and movement into yoga. Maalika adapts the yoga practice to meet an individual's physical issues. She goes beyond physical therapy to teach everyday movements that lead to better health. She uses the entire body to promote over-all well being, recognizing the effect one part of the body has on the entirety. Before meeting Maalika, I thought yoga was trying to get your body into unnatural poses. She makes it such a wonderful experience. After each session, I feel healthier and calmer.

-Sarasota, FL

 Yoga with Maalika has been a miracle for me. Within several sessions, in and out of the water, my body pain had begun to disappear. Yoga and all that is a part of it has completely changed my body and my lifestyle. 

- Sarasota, Fl

Maalika has been my yogini for 4 years now. I keep coming back to her because of the amazing job she does. I get bored easily and she is more than willing to change it up and work on specific issues I may be having. She is the best money I spend on myself ever!

-Sarasota, FL

Maalika has helped me so much with the stress of life. She has given me tools and a new out look. She has so much knowledge and is truly talented. I highly recommend her. She is a investment to your life. With out health we have nothing. 

- Sarasota, Fl

What an amazing experience! Welcoming, safe, loving, energizing, real. A journey for all the senses and the soul. From the beautiful images projected onto the wall, to the smell of the essential oils, to the sound of the transformative music, to the feel of the fabrics and your body moving, letting go, and letting new light in; you are completely transported and transformed. Maalika creates a beautiful environment to celebrate all that is sacred...and opens a space of love for all to access. I am so grateful to have experienced it. Life changing, powerful. Go dance, enjoy, and be forever changed!

-Sarasota, FL

I have experienced three dance trances with Maalika Shay and each time was the most delightful and magical Tantric experience I could have known. I will never forget it. Malika is a very blessed lady who will bring you to full transformation of your soul and will lead you into an amazingly blissful experience. I have never experienced anything as powerful as this before. Thank you, Maalika, for all your hard work and your most inspiring blessings which have positively affected my life!

-Sarasota, FL

We wanted to thank you for the wondrous and transformative Devi Dance last night.  You are wonder-filled and we value your teaching gift.  It was evident how to us how much you know and the many hours and work that you put into creating our experience. We know that many challenges and miracles happen each and every day; thank you for Devi Dance!

-Sarasota, FL

Thank you for all of your efforts in bringing such a sacred experience to us on Saturday night.  I am truly grateful.  I left with such a natural high!

-Sarasota, FL

I just wrote to say...I think it is you that ignited me the most.
After I died. When I first met you, You breathed me back to FULL LIFE.
To the top. To the everphoenix...You were my true reflection, in this world of illusion. Because of you, I could BE Me.

-Sarasota, FL

I just wanted to let you know that my daughter came home tired and cranky this morning after staying at a friends house. She is such a reluctant day time napper just fell fast asleep while listening to your beautiful Yoga Nidra CD..she looks like a little angel and is sleeping soundly and blissfully. Thanks for yesterday’s retreat too, what a beautiful event.

-Sarasota, FL

Maalika created a safe and fun atmosphere where I found the freedom to let my inner child come forth and really let go into the total experience!  Thanks so much for a fabulous evening!

-Sarasota, FL

I always think that my concerns before the session are washed away after some intense yoga excersices.  After a session my mind and heart are grateful.  A talented and professional teacher is essential to get the most out of a yoga session.  Maalika Shay has proven every time I have attended her classes that she is more than qualified.  I have been doing yoga in Norway as well, but no one I know is that committed, talented, and caring as Maalika. I am so thankful for what she has taught me.

- Norway

Maalika emphasizes breathing techniques, letting go and surrendering to the pose.  She teaches that yoga is not about how high up you can lift your leg or stretch, but how much you can really give of yourself, releasing anything negative that does not belong to you so that you can allow yourself the gift of transformation. She has helped me to transform on many levels.

- Daytona Beach, FL

Maalika Shay is  truly living yoga. People are telling methat I look great, sound great, and they want to know what am I doing. I tell them all about Maalika and how she is so motivating and inspiring.  She really guided me into the light again.  They know what a challenging time I was going through and I'm 100% positively changed because of the gift of life experiences and yoga.

- Daytona Beach, FL

The 'Trance Dance' experience with you was a memorable, beautiful, pure, exhilarating, transformative, colorful, spiritual and so much more than mere adjectives can describe. Thank you for facilitating such a unique opportunity!!! I look forward to the next one, hopefully sooner than later! You were a true leader, gate oppener, intense and soft, all in one.

- Sarasota, FL

I hadn't felt that much joy since I was sixteen!  I felt physically empowered and spiritually exhilarated.  Thank you for your openness and passion.

-Sarasota, FL

Maalika Shay Devi Dasi has crafted a beautiful, visually stunning yoga dvd. The pictures and sounds are so relaxing. Maalika's voice is so soothing. She explains all the poses clearly when speaking and also when showing the physical poses. The reason I do yoga at home is due to this beautiful dvd. Maalika is a unique voice in the world of yoga.

-Amazon Review
