Mark has been teaching in the Satyananda Yoga Tradition since 2002. He spent 7 years living in their main centre in India, at the Bihar School of Yoga, where he was teaching and assisting in the training of new teachers. He encourages students to bring the ancient practices of yoga off the mat and integrate them into their lives as an antidote to the challenges of modern life.

Mark is also a trained psychotherapist and this training and perspective of our nature informs his teaching, as does his experience of yoga inform his therapeutic approach.

Satyananda Yoga is a meditative approach to the practices of yoga. Each class will incorporate asana (postures), pranayama (breath work), Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation), and sometimes a meditation practice.
