Taya Maki

Taya Maki is a Montessori School Director, Bellydance teacher, Body Artist, Costumer, and the President of the Société Cryonics de France.

Taya is originally from Vancouver, Canada and has been teaching both English and dance in the Aix-en-Provence region for over 12 years.

She is a graduate of the University of British Columbia where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Wildlife Ecology and Environmental Science. She enjoys sharing her love of nature with young children. She is also passionate about music and dance, which she uses to introduce her students to the English language in a fun way.

In her free time, Taya is trying to advance the situation of cryonics in France. She has been a cryonicist for 15 years and is currently a member of the Cryonics Institute and, more recently, Tomorrow Biostasis.

She is also the president of the French Cryonics Association and has been trying to organize a community in France with the goal of making local standby possible and eventually legalizing cryonics in France.

Since attending her first cryonics event in 2011 she has attended many standby trainings and other Longevity and Cryonics events in Europe. She has also written articles on the subject and had various media interviews.

Her other interests outside of longevity and cryonics include film, ecology, travel, ancient cultures, astronomy, active dreaming, art, and singing.
