Ron Reid and Marla Meenakshi Joy have been teaching a variety of inspired yoga classes and workshops which are Ashtanga and Vinyasa based fort he past 30 years.  Their reach has been global for the past 20 years.

With their band SWAHA they have been leading kirtan (call-and-response chanting) and teach yoga and music in a unique combination.  Inspired by Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, (and the vinyasa practice as a whole) they inform it with intelligent natural body alignment principles, SWAHA YOGA is designed ultimately to tap the creative spark within, and approach the Yoga practice as a Whole (8-limbed path).

Ron Reid and Marla Meenakshi Joy perform and compose music that is both inspiring and uplifting.

SWAHA invites the soul to sing, it is an enticing blend of ethereal Sanskrit vocals soaring over rich earthy rhythms. Swabhava is the Sanskrit word for „one’s innate disposition or  nature which is inherent in all Beings.

SWAHA YOGA embodies the qualities of “Exploration“, “Playfullness“ and “Self-connection and expression“.

Ron Reid and Marla Meenakshi Joy encourages each individual to explore their full potential in themselves, on all levels.

SWAHA music is inspiring and uplifting…. SWAHA’s soulfulness and grooves invites the soul to sing!
