Glutes & core




The fitness world emphasizes the importance of the gluteal muscles and the core to be one of the most fundamental elements in working with the physical body. Yoga world also brings awareness to the same part of the body however they are called mulabandha and uddiyana bandha; the body’s mystical power, energy harnessing and metaphorical balancing centers.

about the instructor: jatta tjurin

Jatta's yoga path started in London 2001 and she felt the invigorating benefits of yoga on the body and mind. She got more deeply involved in the practice of Ashtanga in Dubai 10 years ago and was lucky to practice with many reverent teachers such as David Swenson, Richard Freeman, Petri Raisanen and John Scott. She has made two trips to Mysore to study at KPJAYI with Sharat Jois and will be applying to go practice with him. 

She is a 500h+ certified ashtanga teacher from Tattvaa Yoga Shala in Rishikesh and Ashtanga Rocket from It's YogaSatellite. Jatta is a hands on teacher and likes to connect with her students on a physical and mental level. The understanding of the body and mind connection is prevalent in her classes and she cultivates the deeper side of yoga and at the same time keeps her classes fun, inspiring and energizing. 

She has a passion for the philosophy side and keeps studying Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads and Advaita Vedanta. She feels that the practice is only asana if not backed up by the yoga philosophy.
