“Aswattha, that which will NOT remain the same till tomorrow.”

Aswattha Yoga is the project behind international Yoga Instructor Mario Batres with the intention of sharing his experience and unique vision on the transformative path of Yoga.


Through creative sequencing, conscious alignment and breath awareness Mario’s classes move step by step in progression creating an organic unfolding and offering a dynamic workout culminating in a state of relaxation, happiness and freedom.
Mario creates a warm and welcoming space for students to express themselves through movement helping them to find their edges and connect with their breath.



Originally from Northern Spain and with a background in Design he moved to California in 2009. Committed to the practice for over a decade and with more than 500-hours of certified studies Mario has studied intensively with renowned teachers in the US, India and Europe in the various disciplines of Yoga. In a personal way, Mario blends all his knowledge from his experiences with different traditions to create a rich and vibrant experience for his students.


Mario finds inspiration in the real situations and daily struggles of life, and is motivated to help others manage to stay in an open-hearted, positive and mindful state amidst it all. Classes with Mario are a great workout, dynamic, fun and full of meaning.


When not in the mat you can find Mario hiking the highest peaks on the Himalayas, trekking through Thailand’s jungle or crossing Sahara’s desert. As an adventurous traveler he always finds the challenges to keep him in touch with his higher self.


Mario leads workshops and retreats in the USA and Europe.
