Sitting amidst the snow-covered peaks of the Dauldhar mountains, clear blue sky and faint chants of Buddhist monks is the Mahi Yoga retreat in Dharamshala. Dharmashala is home to his Holiness, the Dalai Lama.
The center was founded by Guru Mahi, who began practicing yoga at the tender age of 11 and continued to deepen his practice as he grew. He started the Mahi Yoga training center with the purpose of spreading the knowledge of yoga in its purity.
Mahi Yoga and Training center is a registered yoga school under the Government of India and has certification from Yoga Alliance USA, ensuring that students who come to Mahi Yoga for advanced teacher training courses not only learn yoga from some of the best teachers but also have the credentials to make a career in yoga internationally.
At Mahi Yoga, the student learns not only hatha yoga but the hidden treasures of meditation as well as Mudras, Pranayama and even ayurveda and vedic gazing. The teachings are not limited to just the transmission of theory but in fact are a process for illuminating the soul. The center's well-qualified international teachers teach with patience and skill.
Teachers at Mahi Yoga pay attention to the physical postures of students as they do their asanas. Guru Mahi himself inspects the progress of every student and identifies the right time when a student is ready for more complex asanas and next level of yoga. Students interested in getting to know the philosophical aspect of yoga can do so in special sessions held by Guru Mahi.
Apart from yoga, students also have the oppertunity to learn about Ayurveda. Yoga and Ayurveda go hand in hand as one is a discipline and another is practice of that discipline. With knowledge of ayurveda, yoga teachers can enhance their own practice and help their students overcome physical problems.
