Maia Tabakova

Reformer Class Sunday at 10 am & 11 am

Maia began her career as a Rhythmic Gymnast at the age of 6 in Bulgaria. She accomplished much throughout her training, winning a Silver Medal in the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. In addition, she participated in a number of World Championship competitions representing Bulgaria where she earned numerous medals and the titles of 1995 World Champion at the competition in Vienna and 1996 World Champion at the competition in Budapest. At the age of 19, Maia came to the United States as a dancer for a well-known Circus where she learned Aerial Silks and Lyra.  She performed her beautiful Aerial Acts for Ringling Brothers, Circus Circus and finally, Cirque du Soleil’s Zumanity where she suffered a great injury. Her recovery included enormous amounts of time spent in Physical Therapy and Pilates which she believes resulted in a miraculous recovery and was the primary impetus for her study of Pilates. Maia earned her Professional Certification from BASI in December of 2011 and has been teaching with passion ever since.
