All Maa Shakti Yog teachers started practicing yoga at a young age. After exploring and studying all aspects of yoga themselves, they starting spreading the ancient wisdom about yog in India and abroad. Our teachers bring a vast knowledge about Hatha, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Yin, Vinyasa, Pranayama and Mediation as well as many years of teaching experience with them. We believe that yoga is learnt best from a guru who has absorbed every aspect of yoga. Our teachers live and breathe yoga every day and will help you to discover your own yogic skills transforming you into a professional yogi or yogini. All Maa Shakti Yog teachers are registered with Yoga Alliance USA.
I visited Rishikesh in early January to find a course but none really stuck out for me. I later came to Maa Shakti based on recommendation and it was the BEST DECISION I'VE MADE. I don't usually post reviews but I felt my unreal experience needed to be shared. Sumit is easily the best teacher I've had. I started the course with a lower back issue from previous yoga practice, Sumit was very attentive to this throughout the course...
MAA Shakti Yog school was a transformational experience for me. I learned so much in 200 hrs. Our instructor Sumit taught how to do all poses safely and with proper alignment. A personal growth journey for mind, body and spirit. I treasure my memories of being at the school and under the instruction of Sumit and Jaggi. I highly recommend the 200 hr course at MAA Shakti Yog school.
An incredible school with incredible teachers. I came to Rishikesh to do my 200hr YTT and to deepen my understanding of yoga beyond just asanas and I am so happy to have chosen to do this at Maa Shakti yoga school. They teach with such passion and have such an in depth understanding of the practice, philosophy, pranayama and mediation techniques. You cannot go wrong with this school.
