Bio

Yoga is the best gift that we have received in this lifetime. It has made us healthier, happier, stronger, calmer, wiser and more confident. We feel younger, more powerful and energetic. We are also much more resilient and able to face life’s challenges with fortitude.

 

We teach yoga for the simple reason that we want everyone to receive these benefits!

 

We have received over 700 hours of formal yoga teacher training. Our first qualification was in 2009 with The Bushey School of Yoga, run by Ellen Lee, who is also the Chair of the Independent Yoga Network.

 

We subsequently qualified as Gold Standard Teachers (2014) and Platinum Standard (Advanced) Teachers (2016) with Chi Kri Yoga, founded by Neil Patel.

 

In 2017 Chi Kri gave us the unique and unprecedented honour of training the next generation of teachers to the Chi Kri Gold Standard. 23 beautiful souls graduated in March 2019, after receiving more than 20 months of intense training. We are very pleased to say that many of them are now successfully sharing the joys of yoga amongst their students!

 

We have also played an active role in spreading yoga in the community, from participation in the United Nations International Yoga Day events, to frequent appearances on the live TV programme, Zee Companion.

 

Chi Kri has been the strongest influence in our lives as yoga teachers and this is reflected in how we teach our classes – with lots of fun, love and compassion, we always encourage you to work mindfully and bring out the best version of yourself. Please see below for more on Chi Kri.

Miti

I have been practising yoga for over 20 years and it has now become a way of life for me. My classes are very special to me and so are all my students. My students are cared for and treated with utmost respect. They are not judged, but listened and guided through their personal growth with compassion.

 

Each session is different, incorporating asanas, sequences, pranayama, meditation, relaxation and spirituality.

 

A word from Neil Patel:-

 

Miti Shah is one of the most naturally gifted people I’ve ever met.

 

Her ability to cover all aspects of human nature is quite astonishing and truly represents what Chi Kri is about, and therefore makes her an incredible yoga teacher.

 

She has the ability to be precise, technical and exacting on one hand, yet to be warm, nurturing and compassionate on the other – and she can flip between the two at ease! Her level of detail in understanding yoga postures is exceptional, and her creative approach to yoga matches this mental self-mastery.

 

I find myself time and time again, almost by default, being inclined to recommend Miti to people interested in yoga as she simply is a Natural Choice for any growing yoga aspirant.

 

Students of Miti will not be disappointed by her genuine, grounded and generous  approach to teaching, a true gem of the yoga world!”

Mehul

In 2012 I quit my highly successful career in Information Technology that spanned over 23 years so that I could be fully committed to teaching yoga. Prior to that I conducted research in Physics at Imperial College London, from where I have been awarded a PhD for my contributions to the field of Laser Spectroscopy.

 

My style of teaching is strong, energetic and powerful, balanced out with compassion and softness. I look to bring out the best in you each time, helping you to find your edge and grow from there.

 

A Word from Neil Patel:-

 

“Wisdom, humility, respect and knowledge all come to mind when I think of Mehul!

 

I had the privilege of both teaching and training Mehul in yoga for many years, and he always displayed the highest and most consistent standards in everything!

 

His personality is balanced well between intelligence and joy, and I’ve seen him create some wonderful classes and heard many, many, great things about him as a teacher!

 

It is rare to meet such a trusting, faithful and steadfast human being, and with the skills of yoga on his side, he is bound to be an inspirational figure to any aspiring yogi. I have trusted Mehul many times within Chi Kri to carry on important tasks and teachings for me, and he does so with confidence and ease, showing his self-control and wisdom.

 

If someone is looking for an all-round yoga teacher who can deliver physical and verbal instructions clearly, explain the benefits perfectly, and be attentive and kind to each and everyone in the class, then Mehul is quite simply beyond comparison!”
