Mark Whitwell

Teaching at Pushpak Yoga

Heart of Yoga


Krishnamacharya, TKV Desikachar, UG Krishnamurti

What he teaches - Heart of Yoga

Mark teaches ha-tha Yoga, which against common understanding means ALL physical forms of Yoga practice, not a specific "style". Hatha means the merging of sun and moon, male and female, prana and apana (two energies), and is a purifying and remedial practice where breath and body movement are one. It means powerful rather than forceful. The practice includes Asana (postures), Pranayama (breathing exercises which love, honour and obey Prana, vital energy), Bandha (co-operating muscle groups that serve the movement of energy and breath), Meditation, Relaxation and Chanting.

a valuable thought

"The purpose of doing yoga posture is to be with the breath. If you are with the breath, you are with what is breathing you, life itself."


Mark Whitwell is interested in developing an authentic yoga practice for the individual, based on the teachings of T. Krishnamacharya and his son TKV Desikachar, with whom he enjoyed a relationship for more than twenty years.
Mark’s teachings clarify the profound passion and relevance of ancient wisdom to contemporary life.
Mark Whitwell has taught yoga for over four decades throughout the Americas, Asia, Europe, Australia, Fiji, and Aotearoa-New Zealand, and is the editor and contributor to TKV Desikachar's book The Heart of Yoga.

Mark travels worldwide to teach what he was taught when not staying in his actual home Fiji - luckily he also runs his very own "HEART of YOGA"-online school.

Two times per week all our Members are able to join his classes.
