about me.

Wherever you are, be all there

hello beautiful soul.

my name is Pia & I’m here to share my adventures with you.

I told myself that I just want to life at the ocean, where it's warm & the sun shines.
So yes - this is where I'm right now. 
Slow travelling with my van. Staying longer in one place where I can teach Yoga,
 connect to the people, doing what fulfills me. And then go where life brings me. 
I feel when it's time to move on, time for new adventures in a new place. 
Because so many opportunities cross my path, people with the same visions -
 I just listen to my intuition & heart.
Living in consistent change can be overwhelming from time to time,
 as we all seek for a little stability in life but I'm trying to find my way. 
I see excitement in changes, seeing the possibility to grow & learn - knowing that something is 
waiting for me that I should experience. 

But let's see how I ended up doing what I'm doing. 
Basically I started my career as a fitness instructor after I left school. Just understanding how the body is functioning, which immense influence movements have, treating ourselves well & how much fun it makes - this all brought me to further educations. 
I teached various kind of group fitness classes, did personal trainings, dived deeper into the medical fitness area. In between strength classes, cardio training like Zumba, Aerobic & ThaiBoxing -
 I found my love in teaching & doing Yoga. 
So after a holiday trip that basically changed my life, I ended up doing my Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) in an ashram in germany. 4 weeks of intense practice,
 learning, growing & healing. It changed a lot inside of me.

On my first solo trip I decided to travel to portugal, where I stayed in a surfcamp.
 First time surfing, first time going somewhere alone. 
This is where my magic happened, I decided I want to become a Yoga teacher, quit my job & teach yoga classes in surf camps - it's the perfect combination for me. Forever living at the ocean, following my passion, connecting to nature. It all felt so right. So I did it.
I mean of course it took a while to be where I am now, I did it in my own pace.  
It took time to figure out how, where, what - and life had different plans in between. 
Taking risks, step by step, to leave the place where I grew up & going where I feel that I belong. Where I feel I could fulfill my heart's desire, my passion, myself. 
Where I heal.

I started my journey end of august 2023 with my van. Heading down to Portugal from Cologne, Germany. After working for a few month in Costa da Caparica (close to Lisbon) I made my way down to the westalgarve. I made it to my favourite place in Portugal - Arrifana, Monte Clerigo, Amoreira - the whole area of Aljezur. After spending almost the whole winter here, it's time for the next adventure soon. End of february I'll take the ferry to Fuerteventura!!

what does maluhia mean?

maluhia (hawaiian) = peace
When I was looking for an artist name I wanted something that represents what I want to give & share with this world. Something that we can create together. Something that is part of my practice, expression & creativity. I found myself being guided in inner peace, grounded & learning to be patient. This feeling of real deep peace that is connected to gratitude, unconditional love & our true, pure nature. This is what I wanted to express. 
Already from an early age I felt a connection to Hawaii - its nature, colours, honouring. And especially the melodic, vocal language resonated with me. This is how I discovered MALUHIA.
