In practical sessions, teachers pay attention to every student and ensure that the asanas are being done in the right posture, style, and spirit.

Special sessions are helped by Guru Mahi, in which he talks about the origin of various asanas - interested students are welcome to be part of these sessions. Attention is also paid to how the students learn and teach yoga. Mahi Yoga teachers teach their students the right way to teach yoga, who apart from imbibing the virtues of patience, endurance go on to become confident yoga practitioners.

Meet The Instructors

Yoga Guru Mahi

When Mahi was 11, his family members, being all yogis, taught him yoga. The whole family belonged to the yoga meditation and pranayama, therefore focusing on the spiritual development of a human. For example, Mahi's father was a disciple of Sri Ramana Maharishi's student. However, not only family members influenced Mahi on his way! He spent a lot of time learning Hatha yoga, Bhakti yoga, meditation, and Karma yoga with monks and swamis.

Amy Moir

Amy’s love for yoga developed because of her mother's influence when she enrolled her on a yoga course in her teen years. This special seed of yoga grew to fruition as her practice grew, and she found a sense of inner peace and self-confidence that she felt compelled to share. Her classes combine the meditative qualities of movement with introspective moments that allow students to access their own inner guide and find the yoga healing aspect.
