As one of the key teachers who used to teach at YogaZone, Azmi’s class has always been based on strength and stability, the two things he strongly promotes as foundations of a yoga practice.
After 11 years of practicing and teaching for 5, he has converged his expertise that he acquired from his gurus like Sri Patthabi Jois, Sharath Rangaswamy, Matthew Sweeney, Louisa Sears, Lance Schuler, John Scott, Judy Krupp and Simon Borg-Oliver, and brought it all together to the heart of his practice, which has taken him to the next level.

Azmi’s focus on being in the state of stillness allows the body to progress, to let go of attachments and to explore deeper into the possibilities of enlightenment, as fear and attachments constantly become common obstacles that prevent progress and development.
He often likes to lead his class into surrendering to thoughts and simply observe the breath as he believes that the profound experience will eventually lead you to a state of tranquillity and happiness.
On top of all that, Azmi’s background in bodywork such as Dance and Massage have contributed to the grace of his practice, which he enjoys sharing in his class. The wonderful thing that he loves in this tradition is that it has helped him get through his darkest days.
