Welcome!

Stability. Balance. Peace of Mind.

Tamarind Leaf Yoga Centre (TLYC) is the fruit of the personal sadhana of its two co-founding members and life partners, Vidyamurti (Hethal) and Ajnananda (Ajit). Trained under the guidance of their Guru, Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati, at the Bihar School of Yoga in India, Vidyamurti and Ajnananda have been working relentlessly to establish a correct understanding and experience of yoga which transcend the most known aspects of yoga such as asana (postures) and pranayama (breathing practices).

At the TLYC, yoga is taught not just as a mechanical practice but as an integral component of our daily life to maintain physical, mental, emotional, intellectual and spiritual health. The ultimate aim is for you to go beyond suffering, and walk on the positive, happy and auspicious side of life. Teaching takes place through classes, talks, mantra chanting, havan, kirtan, pilgrimages, and other practical and innovative ways which enable you to imbibe the essence of the different branches of yoga from hatha to raja, karma, bhakti and jnana yoga.

Confluence of Classical Yoga and Modernity

Rooted in classical yoga, taught in the Guru-Shishya parampara at the Bihar School of Yoga, Vidyamurti and Ajnananda also have the background of a corporate career built over fifteen years locally and internationally. Whilst they teach in humility what they have received by their Guru’s grace, they both have a realistic understanding of the pressures of today’s fast-paced world. TLYC’s teachings are therefore a confluence of tradition and modernity which enable you to organically integrate classical yoga in your busy schedule for a higher quality of life through improved health, peace of mind, and happiness. Our classes are offered in studio as group or one to one as well as online.

TLYC also offers online yoga classes which you can attend from the convenience of your home. We have an efficient online booking system which enables you to manage your account and bookings online so that you can spend more time on the yoga mat rather than handling administrative issues.

Our Yogic Lineage

The Bihar School of Yoga was founded in 1964 by Sri Swami Satyananda Saraswati, pioneer of the modern yogic renaissance, to impart yogic training. Anointed spiritual preceptor in succession to Swami Satyananda Saraswati in 1993, author of many classic books on yoga, tantra and the upanishads, and awarded the third highest civilian award of India, the Padma Bhushan, by the President of the Republic of India for meritorious work in yoga, Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati is the current Paramacharya of the Bihar School of Yoga. He is our pujya Guruji who has infused our being with his divine teachings in Yoga Vidya and to whom we dedicate our work and life.

First and Only Yoga Centre in the Bihar School of Yoga Tradition in Mauritius

Ajnananda and Vidyamurti are the first and only teachers from Mauritius to have trained under the direct guidance of Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati and to offer yoga classes in the Satyananda Yoga – Bihar School of Yoga tradition. We humbly invite you to join us in our yogic journey through our classes at TLYC in the heart of Quatre Bornes (Mauritius) or online.

Must do – Yoga and meditation during pregnancy
Being a very active person, pregnancy sort of slowed down my usual routine. Trail running or golf were not doctor approved fitness during pregnancy. I then opted for prenatal Yoga classes and I am so blessed I met with Hethal from Tamarind Leaf Yoga Centre. During her class, I could enjoy physical activity in a safe environment and meet other mums to be. The breathing exercises, gentle stretches and sharing experiences made my pregnancy enjoyable and labour manageable. Hethal knows which exercises are proper for which trimester and provides great guidance and support in the journey as a future mum. I definitely recommend yoga to any mums to be or anyone really !

Started my journey with Hethal as from the 10th week of Pregnancy. All the yoga asanas and pranayama helped and contributed to my smooth pregnancy throughout the 9 months.. no vomitting, no diabetes, no high blood pressure. I can still hear Hethal’s voice saying “Have you done your practice.. show me what you have been doing”. Calm, patient and caring, Hethal is the go-to person if you are pregnant and are looking for a prenatal class. She has the experience, qualification and knowledge to practise. Postnatal class also helped me a lot.. but with a different Hethal. I called her Hitler didi hehe.. Results of postnatal yoga: All my colleagues were surprised when I resumed work.. same old Poovani with the same flat belly.. they all wanted to know the secret. Go for it.. yoga classes will be beneficial throughout your life.. cause whatever you learn remains, and it is up to you to practise. Thank you Hethal for everything.

Very professional and efficient
Started Yoga Therapy (2 classes per week) around June 2020 after a serious medical treatment which imposed a strict confinement home because of COVID-19 pandemic in France. Distance Yoga classes was the only solution for me. It helped me keep strong mentally during this very difficult period and also maintain my physical condition. I am very grateful to Hethal and Ajit for sharing their experience and knowledge with me. Hari Om.

Since I started yoga at TLYC 5 months ago, I can confidently say that I am lucky to have such a compassionate and inspiring yoga teacher as Ajit. The tailor made program is all I needed. I always look forward to my class twice a week and I always leave there full of positive energy and relaxed. I am overwhelmed by the dedication and commitment of both Ajit and Hethal.

Simply wonderful and amazing
I have been attending yoga classes regularly with Ajit and Hethal since January 2018. The change or should I say the transformation which yoga has brought to my body is simply amazing. I can now do many of the asanas, which in the beginning were difficult, with ease, thus making the practice of yoga more pleasurable. However, my favourite class is Restorative Yoga. A big thank you to both Ajit and Hethal for their commitment towards their students. They are indeed great yoga instructors.

To try is to adopt
After suffering from respiratory illnesses for years, I have finally decided to enroll for yoga therapy class, with the hope to get some relief and heal. It’s been a year now that I joined the Tamarind Leaf Yoga Centre and it’s a fact that my overall health has improved a lot. This was made possible not only with the practice of yoga exercise but also thanks to the Ayurveda consultation and advices from Hethal and Ajit. The fact that I never practiced yoga before was never an issue as Hethal and Ajit are top instructors who will always take time to explain / demonstrate and encourage you. Try yoga at Tamarind Leaf Yoga Centre and you’ll adopt it.

I have been practising yoga at the TLYC for almost 3 years now. I like the peaceful atmosphere out there very much. The perfect place to be at peace with oneself. Tranquility, discipline, calmness and spirituality are the four things that I like the most about TLYC. I am still learning the various poses, and indeed very happy to learn more. Ajit & Hethal are amazing yoga teachers.

Sadhana program – for physical and mental wellbeing.
I have started the Sadhana program for the past nine months, and I loved it. I’m doing the fasting and cleansing program and participating in the yoga and meditation activities. The staff at Sadhana yoga are compassionate and attentive and truly welcome you in as part of their family. The yoga classes were rigorous and designed for the participants each day to be made more or less difficult, depending on the experience, which is excellent. I felt so much better after fasting; it was a perfect detox. I can’t recommend this place more; it is an ideal escape from day to day’s work! Thank you to the Sadhana family for the best days! Ajit & Hethal

My experience at TLYC
Utterly thankful to Hethal & Ajit for introducing me to Hatha Yoga, Pranayama & Ayurveda + much much more. 🧡 It was a YES at 1st Asana! Since then it has been a growing curve. After almost 4 years, I remain a happy student of TLYC, for I always finish each class with a big smile on my face, gratitude in my heart & stillness in my mind. I recommend TLYC to everyone who wishes to embrace Yoga in all its simplicity & profoundness. Hari Om 🙏
