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.
