It was April 1998 when Azmi first set foot on a mat in California Fitness on Orchard Road, where H&M stands today. He began with Hatha, before moving to Iyengar for two years, and finally settling for Ashtanga in 2002. In 2004, Azmi studied under Patthabi Jois in Mysore, India. After his death, he continued studying with his grandson, Sharath, and most recently with Sharath’s mother, Saraswati. He has now been teaching Yoga for over 15 years, 14 of which have been teaching Ashtanga.
Azmi is also an advocate of human anatomy studies. His earlier background in dance and massage have shown him the wonders of the human form. He recently completed a certification course on Yoga Anatomy and Yoga Therapy from Yoga International School of Yoga Medicine. For the past seven years, he has been on an incredible journey with Sound Healing, having returned from his certification course from the Sound Healing Academy (Melbourne) last year made his personal journey complete – the last piece in this wondrous puzzle of life called Yoga.
