About Manouso:

Manouso’s students describe his teaching as transformative, healing, and deeply profound.

After numerous trips to Pune, India and over four decades of personal practice, his understanding of and insights into the teachings, of his teacher BKS Iyengar,  are conveyed with authenticity and precision. His sense of humor and sensitivity shine through as his dynamic and challenging teaching style moves his students beyond their perceived limits.

“I think you are all fortunate to have yoga teachers like Manouso, who expresses compassion and love and goes beyond his capacity to help those who need his help, for betterment of health and happiness. Since I’ve known him, I knew that he would be a wonderful teacher who will be liked by one and all, as time grows, and he has proved that what I had in my mind has become a fact now. While he has served the brothers and sisters of America for very many years and the most important thing – that he considers all his students as his family members which is really a rare thing to see these days, particularly in the western countries – that unity.”
-B.K.S. Iyengar to Manouso on his 50th birthday
