About the Instructor: JATTA TJURIN
Jatta started the path of yoga in 18 years ago and when she discovered Ashtanga yoga 11 years ago she felt intrigued and challenged physically and at the same time her mind was changed for good . She started practicing seriously and followed many famous ashtanga teachers; Lino Miele, Richard Freeman, David Swenson and then finally made her first trip to Mysore in 2010 to study at KPJAYI. She then subsequently travelled to Rishikesh to certify herself as a 500 + Yoga Alliance Ashtanga teacher from Tattvaa Yoga Shala. She also immersed herself deeply in the Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita and Hatha Yoga Pradipika from which the yoga philosophy is derived from and realized that the physical asana is just one fraction of the whole of Yoga, which is as vast as life itself. She keeps practicing with the KPJAYI level 2 authorized teachers in Dubai and returns back to Mysore every year to study with Sharat Jois.
Her teaching is based on traditional Ashtanga method and she is hand on with her students during the class to guide and adjust on a physical as well as energetic level. Her classes are always light and fun yet she cultivates a profound message in the beginning and the end of the class. She also teaches modified Ashtanga, vinyasa and hatha flow and each student will always receive individual adjustments according to their needs.
