Meet the Author

Mira Mehta MPhil (Oxon), AAPA, is known as a leading expert on Yoga with a rounded proficiency in philosophy, postures, therapy yoga and teacher training. She is at the forefront of developing the understanding of Yoga theory and has written four Yoga guides translated into many languages.

She, together with her brother Shyam, began Yoga as children with world renowned guru BKS Iyengar. Their mother, Silva Mehta, was an early and principal pupil of Iyengar and ran UK government Yoga teacher training courses in the 1970's which projected Yoga into a mainstream activity. Well known as a Yoga family, their bestseller "Yoga: the Iyengar Way" has been highly influential throughout the world, inspiring countless people.

As an adult Mira studied annually in India with BKS Iyengar for over 20 years and also spent 3 years there deepening her practice and pursuing postgraduate studies in Yoga philosophy and theory (with Prof KS Arjunwadkar) as well as in Ayurveda. She has an MPhil in classical Indian Religion and Sanskrit from Oxford University, an Advanced Yoga Teaching Certificate from BKS Iyengar, and a Diploma in Ayurveda (Basic) from TM University in Pune, India.

Mira's teaching experience, begun in 1973 in the UK, covers all aspects: general classes, teacher training, therapy Yoga, pranayama and philosophy. She holds workshops all over the world, including America, Australia, Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Canada, the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Italy and Spain.

In 1999 she founded The Yogic Path school in London. The website (www.yogicpath.com) contains articles on philosophy, practice and therapy.
