Mahinder Prasad (Mahi) is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance, which acknowledges the completion of a yoga teacher training with an approved and active Registered Yoga School (RYS).
When Mahi was eleven, his family members, being all Brahmins, taught him yoga. The whole family belonged to the highest class of Indian society, 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.
By turning eighteen, Mahi went around India to continue his development on the yoga path, staying in Mysore, Bangalore, Rishikesh and some other places, absorbing different styles of teaching. However, it was never enough, so he went to senior Iyengar teachers, learning how to focus on technical aspects of hatha yoga alignments and anatomy. At his center he teaches the effect of asanas and their adjustments. And this is exactly what allows Mahi to use yoga as a way of kriyas people with various pathologies of the body.
