Kintu Makanji

RYT-200, Baptiste Methodology
Kintu started a consistent Baptiste power yoga practice in the summer of 2007 with the hopes of gaining energy and loosing pregnancy weight. At first she found the practice extremely challenging, but the benefits she felt kept her committed to working through the resistance. For the first time in her life she felt a connection to her mind, body and heart. This connection grew in depth with every practice and training. She considers herself to be a lifelong student of yoga and is passionate about sharing the power of the practice.

Kintu holds a B.S. in Biology from the University of Central Florida and an RYT-500 Yoga Teacher Certification through Yoga Alliance. She is grateful to all her teachers she's had the privilege to study with including Baron Baptiste, Sarah Powers and Sadhguru.

Kintu Makanji instructs the following:
  • Power Yoga & Mindful Meditation (90 min)
  • This class combines a 60 minute Baptiste Power Yoga class with an optional 30 minute meditation class. 
    The Baptiste Power Yoga class is heated in a 90 Degree heated room. The practice is a vinyasa style class to get your body moving and your heart rate up. The poses are challenging in a way that gets you out of your head and into your body. This class is the perfect start to a mindful meditation. This is a guided meditation with self inquiry and discussion at the end. The meditation is optional.

  • Meditation Immersion
  • Meditation Immersion
    Our Meditation Immersion offers a deep exploration into the science, benefits, and techniques of meditation. Meditation is proven to reduce stress and enhance overall well-being, but for many of us it is difficult to motivate ourselves to cultivate a regular practice. The immersion will give you a comprehensive understanding of meditation as well as the inspiration and clarity to practice regularly. Bring a yoga mat, journal, pen and a light lunch.
