Our Passion & Philosophy


“Yoga has been described as wisdom in work or skillful living amongst activities, harmony and moderation” / B.K.S Iyengar 

Our passion is to share the gift of Yoga in it’s deepest essence which is beyond the Physical, and to empower the individuals. To be reminded of the immense strength and intuition that reside within each and everyone of us. To reclaim our power and support each other on this path called Life.

Our main form of practice and the lineage from which we come is Vinyasa yoga, a dynamic flow which gives the freedom to creatively express oneself. This is what we consider the essence of Yoga, linking Breath and Movement with Intention, celebrating the joy in life and the wisdom of Yoga as a lifestyle.

We see Yoga as a way of life — something to practice both on and off the mat. Yoga allows us to become more present and free of stress, to reconnect with our spirit and the truth of who we are.  At Sukha Mukha our classes are physically challenging and spiritually uplifting. We always draw back to the meaning, source and Philosophy of Yoga and realize just how relevant they are to our lives today.  At the end of class you will leave feeling in harmony with your body, mind and soul.

Our classes are suitable for all people, all ages and all religions.

What does

Sukha Mukha mean?

Sukha is joyous, happy, blissed and Mukha is face, hence; Happy Face Yoga.

I was looking for a name that would present what I believe yoga is and should be. Going through many different names and Sanskrit terms I was blessed to have Jasmine, my teacher from NYC come to teach in Sydney, and during her workshop she kept saying “bring some Sukha to your Mukha”. it took me a few times hearing it to be able to translate it in my brain, and I immediately knew in my heart that that was the name I had been waiting for.

This is how Sukha Mukha Yoga was born into this world.

Idit Hefer Tamir

Idit, the founder of Sukha Mukha Yoga and the Director of Sukha Mukha Yoga teacher training, has been immersed in the practice and philosophy of yoga for over 25 years.


Her transformative journey began during her travels in India when she discovered yoga. Since then, she has dedicated herself to delving deeper into this ancient discipline, completing her first teacher training in 2006 in Sydney Australia, and continuing to study with numerous inspiring teachers. 


Yoga has provided Idit with a language to explore and confront various aspects of life. It has introduced her to an ancient philosophy that addresses the very questions she has pondered and offers pathways to overcome challenges and difficulties. 


Guided by teachers who embody the teachings both on and off the mat, Idit's personal journey continues to unfold with each passing day. 


Idit continues to study, grow, and develop advanced training programs. Motivated by the profound positive impact that yoga has had on her own life, Idit is driven to share its teachings, wisdom, philosophy, and joy with others. Her hope is to facilitate healing, empowerment, and a rediscovery of the immense knowledge, power, and wisdom that resides within each individual. 


Idit's primary interests lie in Vinyasa flow, viewing it as a form of body poetry and expression. She also explores Alignment as a means of aligning the body, mind, and spirit, and embraces Restorative Yoga as an essential practice for relaxing the nervous system and navigating life's magical yet often challenging journey. 


As Paramahansa Yogananda wisely said, "If you make up your mind to find joy within yourself, sooner or later you shall find it." Idit invites you to embark on this journey of celebration and exploration, as she guides you towards discovering joy, self-discovery, and a deeper connection to the transformative power of yoga. 


Come and join her on this extraordinary path of self-discovery and growth.
