The Embodied Alchemy Series:

Somewhere along the way of this amazing, confusing and sometimes painful life, we learn to suppress our desires and prioritise other things because we don’t have time: we forget who we are, what we love, and to connect to our joy everyday.

Here at Maya Gandaia: Embodied Alchemy we want to help you remember! To come home to yourself, to reawaken that joy, to reconnect to our true soul purpose and begin sharing our gifts with the world.

YOU can creating an abundant joyful life using your creativity!


This is a series of 7 workshops inspired by the Chakra system to help empower female creatives to transform doubt, embody their passion and create abundance and become true Alchemists.

Over the course of the program, you will be inspired to step out of the illusions which hold us back from being our true superhero selves and create the life we would love!

The Series were developed on Ella Mesma Company dancers whilst I was training in Alchemy, to facilitate the telling of the performers stories and dealing with all the stuff that comes up in the studio, and in life in a way that was healing, affirming and helped the dancers access the beautiful place of vulnerability where the magic happens.

Now, that series has evolved to empower female creatives to transform doubt, and the blocks from embodying their passions in life and create abundance and joy.

The series are a powerful healing

A Alchemy, Truth, Freedom, Creativity, Grounding, Releasing Fear, Opening your heart… and much more!

They are a our journey bring us back home to our authentic self.

They are our true CREATIVE expression.

If chakras are blocked this keeps us from flowing freely in our lives, from creating, from taking control of our lives. Each lower chakra corresponds to an upper chakra, and so we like to run our sessions in this order to achieve balance, and each time we move up to a new chakra raising a higher vibration.

The origin of the rainbow chakras and the kundalini serpent derive from the Yoruba Orisha system of ancient West Africa, deified in the divinity Oshumare and that is why the PathFor series focus on the dances of these deities as well as movement styles and artistic mediums to allow us to connect with our pure creative spirit.
