Yoga Programs Director, Senior Instructor, PAS
Agni Ma Mushkin is a monk in the Kashi lineage of Yoga. She began a devoted study of yoga and meditation with Swami Jaya Devi and Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati in 1999 when she hurt her back boxing. She immediately fell in love with the resounding presence she experience from yoga and her back healed quickly. Agni Ma is now a Senior Yoga teacher who resides in the Kashi Atlanta ashram and serves as the Director of Kashi Yoga Programs. Agni Ma worked as a poverty and civil rights lawyer and advocate for over 25 years at nonprofit law firms including Atlanta Legal Aid Society, Southern Center for Civil Rights Enforcement, and Georgia Legal Services.
Agni Ma loves to share the yoga and meditation that have kept her pain free and passionate about life and serving others, both on and off the mat. At Kashi, she teaches a variety of yoga and meditation classes, including the increasingly popular Yoga Boot Camp. Each of her classes has a strong asana practice mixed with Egoscue postural alignment techniques to strengthen, realign and heal the body. Agni Ma’s classes feature a strong emphasis on the breath, as well as meditation, mantra, and mudra, to release stress and open the mind, body and heart. She offers private sessions to get people pain free using Full Body Therapy and Postural Alignment techniques based in the Egoscue Method.
