Muni is one of the powerhouses of Vital Yoga and is famous for his sense of humour, he knows how to shake the seriousness out of us all!
His approach to yoga is simple; to practice regularly, feel better, and to enjoy being in the class rather than stress about what you’re wearing or even how flexible you are. These anxieties are counterproductive for yoga and Muni is eager to keep you motivated and entertained in the class. His style is straightforward, clear and right at the core of yoga. Muni is an emblem of an active life with a background as a rock climbing and mountaineering instructor, qualified arborist, triathlete, volunteer conservationist with the Outdoor Wilderness Trust, hang glider pilot and he can even translate all of this information in sign language! He mentions, “I also love cycle touring, biking all day long and then stopping somewhere to pitch my tent, cooking on my little stove and then doing it all the next day: this is bliss!”
He’s qualified in teaching Traditional Ashtanga Yoga and completed his E-RYT 200hr training in 2018.
