MAHA SHANTI YOGA IS A REGISTERED YOGA SCHOOL WITH THE YOGA ALLIANCE (RYS200) 

 

ABOUT US

We are both Experienced Registered Yoga Teachers (E-RYT 500) with the Yoga Alliance accredited with more than 500 hours of teacher training and more than 2000 hours of teaching experience.  Fully certified in Hatha Yoga, our teacher training experience has been based on the traditional Indian gurukulam system of education, living in an ashram setting while studying under the tutelage of the master teacher.

 

We undertook our initial Yoga teacher training at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center in Kerala, India in 2004 and in 2011 completed an intensive Advanced Yoga Teacher Training with the International Vasishta Yoga Research Foundation, also in Kerala, India.

 

In addition, we have completed 2 different teacher training courses in the field of Yoga Therapy, our first being in 2004 at Yoga Vidya Dham, a university and research institute in Nashik affiliated with the University of Pune in India and our second in  2012 with the International Vasishta Yoga Research Foundation.

 

Each year we continue to expand our experience, knowledge and practice of Yoga with regular further training with our teacher Saji P.K, Director of the International Vasishta Yoga Research Foundation.  We also continue to deepen our study of specialist areas with vastly experienced Yoga teachers such as Mark Stephens, the founder of Yoga Inside Foundation, L.A. Yoga Center and Santa Cruz Yoga.

 

YOGA TRADITION

Our yoga tradition follows the classical teachings of Hatha Yoga. Combining an integrated approach to personal and spiritual development with health, our teaching  is based on traditional vedantic, tantric and yogic teachings in conjunction with  a contemporary science of physical and mental well being.
