Our Mission

The Hatha Yoga Effect essentially seeks to increase understanding of the ancient science of yoga; deepening awareness of yoga’s true essence and making it relevant to the fast-paced modern environment in which we live. Coming from a source that is the embodiment of yoga, this meditative approach allows you to go beyond the body and mind. We teach Isha Hatha Yoga, a method rooted in the ancient systems but presented in an accessible format so that everyone can benefit from this deep yogic knowledge of the human system.

About Sadhguru (Lineage)

Isha Hatha Yoga was founded and inspired by globally renowned yogi and international best-selling author Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev. He first founded the Isha Foundation, which is non-profit organisation created to offer various yogic tools for human well-being. He has stated many social projects helping the rural areas of South India as well as environmental projects too. His talks on all aspects of human well-being and life have gained him international recognition leading him to speak on one of the worlds biggest stages including the UN and the World Economic Forum.

He started the Isha Hatha School of Yoga in 2012 which focuses on Classical Hatha Yoga or the physical side of yoga. This is so to reintroduce the most classical form of yoga which dates back thousands of years and bring back aspects of yoga which are largely absent today.

About Maria (Founder & Teacher)

Yoga Systems Hatha Yoga School is founded by Maria D’souza. Its is the first private school in Indonesia to teach Isha Classical Hatha Yoga in its full depth and dimension.

After experiencing the benefits of practicing Isha Hatha Yoga in 2015, Maria gave up a successful career in the Fashion Industry, and undertook the internationally-acclaimed 1750-hour intense Isha Hatha Yoga Training Program in South India in 2017.

Getting cured of a chronic ailment that she was suffering from for 7 years and loosing 18 kgs weight were only some of the side effects of the training which was a very humbling and profound experience of the deeper dimensions of life, that has touched her so deeply that she wants to dedicate the rest of her life to bringing this awareness to as many people as possible.

The Private studio, even though its in the heart of the city, is in a very quiet, peaceful and green surrounding.  Classes are taken in an intimate group setting and taught with great care and precision to create a conducive atmosphere for learning the subtle science of Hatha Yoga.
