Mark Whitwell

Founder of The Heart of Yoga Foundation, a non-profit group committed to yoga education around the world, Mark Whitwell teaches yoga throughout the U.S., Europe, Asia and New Zealand.

Whitwell?s teachings translate the profound passion and relevance of ancient wisdom into contemporary life. Believing that spiritual or physical gymnastics are needed only denies the reality of our own wonder, Whitwell sees yoga as the means by which ordinary men and women can easily absorb the nurturing force of life freely.

Mark Whitwell studied for more than twenty years in the home of Krishnamacharya, ?the teacher of our teachers? and his son TKV Desikachar. He edited and contributed to Desikachar?s book, The Heart of Yoga, and his own book is Yoga of Heart: The Healing Power of Intimate Connection. His new book is The Promise of Love, Sex and Intimacy (Atria).
