Surrounded by melodic kirtans, devotional mantras, and the philosophy of yoga and the Bhagavad Gita since early childhood, Maneesh found his passion of yoga rekindled as a young adult. He pursued his personal yoga practice full time starting in 2006 in Mysore, India where he devoted himself to studying the various schools of asana, pranayama, ayurveda, sanskrit, and the intimate relation between these subjects.  Today, Maneesh is based out of Tokyo, Japan, where he runs a daily mysore program and holds retreats throughout Asia. He is inspired to deepen and share his teachings though the therapeutic aspects of yoga, the power of breath, and the ultimate spiritual goal of Yoga - Truth.

Hip Openers, Mudras, and Pranayama

Join teacher Maneesh Kalra for a special guest workshop class. 

The ancient yogis developed a wide variety of tools to help navigate our journey towards having an authentic experience of Self. In this workshop, we will explore the tools of asana, mudra (gestures), and pranayama (breathing techniques) to help us create a more stable and comfortable vessel which one can rest into. 

We will focus on hip opening postures to create warmth and open the pelvis, one of the key areas to unwind for a happier and healthier body and life. This will facilitate our exploration of mudra and pranayama to help us get closer to our psychological, emotional and spiritual seat. 

All levels of practitioner are welcome.
