About – Aswattha Yoga

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

Aswattha Yoga is a project created by international instructor Mario Batres with the intention of sharing his experience and unique vision on the transformative path of Yoga.


Mario’s dynamic teachings focuses on conscious alignment, proper breathing and mind-body awareness to prepare the practitioner for whatever comes next, on and off the mat. With the ultimate intention of using asana as a vehicle of self expression to unfold the yoga experience, allowing it to transcend and seek integration in daily life.


Originally from Spain, Mario was once an active member of San Francisco’s yoga community where he lived for over a decade. It was in California, under Dana Flynn and Jasmine Tarkeshi’s mentoring from iconic Laughing Lotus yoga centers that Mario begins his teaching career.



After years serving the Bay Area for different studios and training programs Mario started his own project to share with others his particular vision on the yoga journey.


Over the years Mario has studied with other renowned teachers in USA, India and Europe, such as Mark Whitwell, Rusty Wells, BNS Iyengar from Mysore and the historic faculty team at Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chenai. Achieving thousands of teaching hours as a mentor and facilitator, firmly committed to his mission and always providing a professional, soulful and vibrant experience for his students.


Mario currently facilitates workshops, training programs and retreats around the world.
