About me

Healing through Intimacy..

A mystic, a space holder and a lover of all things touch. For the last 10 years I have helped many people of all different ages, ethnicities and backgrounds explore erotic and personal transformation.  I am deeply passionate about sexual empowerment and joyful, pleasure-positive living.  I have trained as a somatic sex educator, sacred sexuality practitioner and empowerment coach.

The name "Devi Ananda".... 

Devi a name that I took on early in my bodywork career.   The word Devi roughly translates to "goddess" and Ananda to "bliss".


Some folks who know me through my other work in somatic intimacy coaching may know me as Maxine. 


 They are both my names - I adore how they've given me space to wear similar but different hats.  


I've always been sensual, curious and deeply intuitive.  People often describe we as warm and magnetic.  I weave playfulness into the way that I work with people, alongside deep presence.   


In 2017 I travelled to Hawaii study Tantra and had the pleasure of learning under world renowned Tantra teacher Margot Anand. In addition I completed my certification as a Sexological Bodyworker and Somatic Sex Educator through the Somatic Sex Educators Alliance.  I feel honoured to have of travelled all over the world to study with many inspiring educators and embodied sexuality teachers. 

I'm committed to healthy living and creative expression.  I do yoga, dance and spend much of my free time in nature.  I'm a lover of the the arts and encourage everyone to find their own voice and outlet. 

Recharging in the lush paradise of BC's wild coast allows me to bring my most energized and authentic self to the table.
