About me

Amit Heri is an acclaimed musician, yogi and traveler, seeking to experience and understand the wonder of nature in its myriad layers - external/internal, gross/subtle, physical/divine.

His intention with teaching yoga is to share the wisdom of the ancient tradition of yoga with the purpose of empowering people to overcome negativity and to stay connected with the positive aspects of nature.

His clear-cut and compassionate method empowers students to attain greater awareness, clarity and consciousness in their practice and in their lives. His teachings stem out of his own experience with yoga as a transformational process – from shifting ignorance, ego, attachment, aversion and fear – based thinking to a more conscious, peaceful and trusting outlook.

Growing up in Bangalore, India, his interest in yoga was kindled at the age of 14, and role modeled by his parents, teachers and others with their positive mental outlook, attitude and disposition, in spite of the many challenges they faced in their day to day lives.

His yoga studies in India have been in various systems of Hatha Yoga – Ashtanga and Iyengar included.

His teachings are interdisciplinary and focus on devotion (Bhakti) to the practice of stabilizing, balancing and opening the body, breath and emotions as a means to liberate the mind and connect with heart and divine energy (Shakti).

My Philosophy of Care

I spent most of my teens and early 20s focussing on honing my music skills (at the Berklee College of Music) and on a successful music career, performing all over the world, and producing music for film and television.

And yet there were many aspects in my life that I wasn't happy about - relationships, physical, mental and emotional states. There came a point in my life when I had to do some serious soul-searching as to the purpose of my life. That's when I decided to make yoga my practice to refine my physical, mental, emotional and spritual well-being.

As I like to say - "I'm blessed to have studied jazz in the US and yoga in India". Right at the source with some really great teachers! It makes a difference!

My teachings stem out of my own experience with yoga as a transformational process – from shifting ignorance, ego, attachment, aversion and fear – based thinking to a more conscious, peaceful and trusting outlook.

Yoga has brought me peace, joy and bliss and has helped live a much more meaningful existence.

My purpose is to help others find the same in their lives.

My Inspiration

Yoga has the potential to dramatically change your life for the better!

It is difficult to define Amit's practice in just a few sentences. Amit's discipline is based on very strong fundamentals of traditional yoga. He teaches with compassion and kindness. His practice is methodical, which makes it easier to find the balance between body and mind. He has the ability to adapt instructions to students at different levels. His instructions are very precise during the sessions and sometimes he accompanies the physical experience with expressions of the traditional yoga philosophy. I have been practicing yoga on and off for the last 20 years, and I had the opportunity during this time to take classes with a number of teachers. No one had the depth and maturity of Amit's teaching. Practicing with Amit helps me physically but most importantly he showed me that with patience and consistency I can achieve a peaceful state of mind. Grazie Amit.
My yoga practice has deepened and flourished since taking class with Amit Heri. His classes are taught in a relaxed style that takes you to a very deep place within each pose. Amit has an excellent knowledge of how to take a student through all levels of a pose, from beginning to advanced. Shavasana is accompanied with beautiful guitar music played by Amit.
Amit is an incredible Yoga teacher. I have taken group and private lessons with him and my yoga practice has deepened due to his guidance. He is gentle, yet helps students progress in their practice beautifully. One of my favorite things about Amit's teaching is his authenticity, both as a genuine human being, and also as a yoga teacher - he helps students access spiritual and physical benefits of the practice. Working with Amit offers much more than an exercise class!
Amit is a wonderful, truly gifted Yoga teacher! His teaching style is very clear, thoughtful, caring and safe. He does not push students in poses, instead he carefully guides each student at their own pace. He also helps students ground their emotions in a safe space and imparts a lot of wisdom from ancient Yoga writings and his teachers. In his class I am always appropriately challenged and respected. At the end of each class I feel at peace and inspired with the beautiful music that he plays.
Amit Heri is a wonderful and very special yoga teacher. His teaching is steeped in the tradition of yoga while also being keenly aware of the joys and trials and tribulations of the modern lifestyle. He artfully weaves classical Yoga thought into asana and pranayama practice bringing deep peace and cleansing.
Amit's style is rooted in Ashtanga, but his approach is gentle, methodical, and patient. With a mixed level in his online classes, he is able to take each student on their own journey and deepen their practice wherever they are. I love that he incorporates a bit of the sutras in each class! Added bonus...while is savasana, Amit will treat us with acoustical guitar and beautiful melodies written and sung by the guru himself. XXX OOO
Amit has been giving me private group yoga classes for about a year now. Prior to this, I barely excercised. I am so addicted. Hate missing his classes. I realized right from the get go that he understood that each one of us had a different learning capacity and different issues with our bodies (old injuries, age, etc). He was able to work with each one of us and really teach us the benefits of yoga! I have a slipped lower back disc and he always makes sure that the yoga poses help rather than hinder my back pain. My back may be sore after a good yoga session but the old pain is mostly gone by strengthening the back muscles with yoga. I can’t thank him enough! Hope to keep learning and achieving better health thru yoga with Amit!
Amit is a fantastic Hatha yoga instructor. He helped me release high levels of stress, and find peace at the edge of my limits.
I meant to submit this review a long time ago. Whether you're new to yoga or not, is immaterial. Taking a class with Amit will change your life in the nicest way. Amit is one of the best teachers I've ever had. With just the perfect balance of kindness, compassion, and tough love, Amit encourages his students to deepen their own practice. His instructions on alignment are outstanding are so easy to follow. He's also extremely attentive and will help you work through any issues/ailments you might have. It's both physical and mediative and you'll always leave his class with a full heart. If you haven't taken a class with Amit yet, book one already and thank me later. Cheers, Sruti
