5 STAR Review,

“Murti and Larina were amazing in their ability to share their knowledge and practice of yoga in a way that made me feel not only was I profoundly deepening my journey as a yoga student, but they also gave me the confidence to make the transition to teaching. I cannot put into words how lucky I feel to have found Murti and Larina and to have been able to go through their training. Not only are they both two of the most wonderfully nice and loving people I have ever met, they are incredible teachers with the capacity to train. I can truly say that both of their knowledge, experience and compassion made the experience so enriching and insightful – even if I were to not teach, I feel like the transformations I was able to make not only in my yoga practice but in who I am as a person made the training so worth it. I give the highest rating I can to Maha Yoga Institute and feel so honored to be able to write this review.”

5 STAR Review,

“This 200 hour training with Maha Yoga Institute with Murti Hower is highly recommended by me, a recent student of Murti’s. I completed the 200 hour training and there is no greater feeling than that of which you feel after a yoga session on the yoga mat. Your body and mind connect, worries you once had seem dismal and disappear in the Asanas and all the teachings of the Ashtanga breath work, the relaxation at the end of class with the joy of having Murti’s loving wife and aid to share her bodywork and essential oils, the melting of all the worries of small things go away to a space where they don’t bother you anymore. Once I began the journey into yoga, there was no turning back for me, I ached for more of this beautiful (and hard) work of the body mind soul…tears ran down my cheeks as my heart opened and let out things I had been holding onto for a long time. Maha Yoga Institute is the best if you are searching for more in your life, for a compassionate and knowledgeable teacher who has over 30 years in teaching. I got peaceful through this yoga journey. I forgave people who had wronged me, I was full of LOVE, COMPASSION, and had a greater understanding of people and their pain and how to disconnect from it and not make it my own. I am a stronger human being and woman for this training with Murti Hower. It has taught me to continue on retreats/classes/teaching/sharing the joy of yoga with anyone who wants to listen. However, not “pushing” it on them. The way Murti teaches leads you into a comfortable safe place and I’m signing up for anything Maha Yoga Institute does in the future, i.e., the 500 hr program later in the year. Yoga with Murti. Sign up, go find your soul, your greater self. It will make the world a better place. Murti will be remembered and written about long after he’s off to his other life…take advantage of Murti’s wonderful teachings now.” :) Jai! Namaste

5 STAR Review,

“I had a very rich experience in this training. Murti incorporated many aspects of yoga in to the 200 hour course and gave me a solid foundation to begin teaching the powerful practice of yoga to others.”
- Angel Pikula

Yoga Practitioner, Intermediate

“Having practiced yoga for 14 years, it was time to take my practice deeper. Mainly, I wanted to develop greater knowledge on proper alignment in asanas, or, poses.
Murti’s 200 hr yoga teacher training helped me accomplish this.”
- Alessandra Jann-Jordan

New Student to Yoga

“The classes are enjoyable. You get to know the people in your class very well. After all, you will be spending 200 hours with them. Murti has an entertaining way when he teaches also. It’s fun while challenging at the same time. Bottom line: As Murti told me…I did not regret signing on!! Just do it! You will not regret it! I didn’t!”
- K.S.
