Teachers > Mani
Mani has always been active since childhood, when he already started to playfully and unconsciously move his body into yoga postures. His cousin saw what he was doing at the tender age of 8 and recommended him to a Guru, kick-starting his yoga journey from which he never looked back.
During his early days of yoga practice, Mani participated in hundreds of competitions, won many championships, and forged deep friendships worldwide. The glory he gained made him realise that Yoga had not only made him physically flexible and strong, but it had also fortified an immense amount of willpower and self-discipline within him. Through interaction with countless participants that possessed unique individualities, he has come to believe in non-comparison and that everyone has their own potential to be discovered and to shine.
This thinking led Mani to deepen his practice spiritually at Kaivalyadhama Yoga Institute. It was a major shift in focus from his competitive lifestyle earlier on. Here, he concentrated on functions of the human brain and body and the effects Yoga can have on them, so that he could help individuals with their existing conditions through Yoga.
Being innately creative, Mani makes class fun through different sequences that cater to all. He has a sense of humour that will make you laugh all day! Students will feel a heightened sense of groundedness, relaxation and bliss after his class. He hopes everyone will approach yoga with the mind of a beginner and discover their true Self.
