The Devipur HISTORY
A dream come true!
A project born from the union of Yoga, love, knowledge and passion for India, travels, spiritual traditions and for communities based on the celebration of life!
DEVIPUR YOGA EXPERIENCE was born from the original idea of Maya Swati Devi and her spiritual partner Joseph Kamal, with the intention of promoting the cultural and artistic heritage of India and Yoga, as well as the psychophysical well-being of the human being.
Maya and Joseph Kamal are partners in life and they have different professional backgrounds:
Maya has a degree in History of Art and Costume at the University of Florence and a Masters in Fashion Design & Management in London at Central Saint Martins, has a ten-year career as a fashion designer in the international fashion luxury brands.
She is a real globetrotter and she is been living in London, Paris, New York, Hong Kong,India, Spain.
Most of all Maya Swati Devi has been traveling and living in India since 1996.
During these many decades, she has explored the cultural heritage of India and the spiritual path of yoga.
Since 2007 she dedicates her life to the diffusion of Yoga and Indian dance and has been involved in event planning, creation of shows, dance festivals, yoga and Indian culture in Italy and abroad.
Joseph has a wide range of marine and nautical experiences dating back to 1992, ranging from diving to the driving yachts and sailing boats, as a professional Skipper.
This strong know-how allows us to offer unique experiences, original proposals, organized in a professional way, rich in cultural content and with absolute respect for the land and the sea.
Devipur the Yoga experience will welcome students from India and all over the world to spread some of the most ancient spiritual paths and traditions.
