What others say about us:


I value the feeling of mental and energetic homecoming, the perfected adjustments, the consistent schedule and the clear instructions.

Ravi Soekhai

I really love the personal guidance and attention of the Mysore class. In my crazy busy life this shala brings me peace and quietness and gives me space to really be aware of my body and how it feels in my own pace. Maxi and her assisting teachers make a great team, love this place and glad I found it.

The personal attention and input I receive for my practice, even when practicing in bigger groups is extraordinary.

Hi from Maxi, founder of Bhumi Yoga

Hi, I’m Maxi (mom, certified yoga teacher, PhD, SE practitioner trainee and 600h Ayurveda Health Counselor trainee). I founded Bhumi Yoga in 2010 from deep wish to be a source of healing in this world.

 I know what it’s like to feel lost, imbalanced and hassling through life, pushing body and mind beyond limits, driven by insecurity and fear. This was my life for many years until I started to refocus.

In my work I empower people of all walks of life to reconnect to their inner agency and come to a better inner perspective for themselves. 

Central to my work is holding space every weekday morning in our Mysore Yoga room. My teaching is always personal and geared towards the individual in front of me. In my teaching I use practices such as Ashtanga Yoga, Vinyasa Krama Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Embodied Coaching, Yoga Philosophy, Pranayama, Ayurveda and Chanting.

My wish is to offer a safe space for you to foster awareness and deep understanding from within. Read more
