IS THIS COURSE FOR YOU?

Are you interested in working towards a 200 hour teacher training and and would you like to test the waters? Or you may simply be curious to know more about yoga beyond the Asana practice and would like to delve deeper into this ocean of knowledge then this course IS FOR YOU.
WHAT IS THE COURSE ABOUT?
The course provides an overview on the practice of yoga as it was originally taught and helps show how it can be adapted to the modern day. It gives you a solid understanding of both the theoretical and practical aspects of the science of yoga and helps you establish your own consistent practice. This course also offers a solid foundation into the practice of yoga. During this 6-week program, you will be guided through the foundations of yoga postures, basic personal alignment, breathing practices and principles of relaxation and meditation.
WHAT IS THE STRUCTURE OF THE COURSE?
This 6-Week course consists of 6 Masterclasses. Masterclasses will be held on Saturdays 2:00pm – 4:00pm (120minutes) and will consist of 2 parts: a 45-minute theory class and 75-minute practical session. To implement what has been covered in the Masterclass and to start establishing a consistent practice, students will be given 3 passes to attend any 3 yoga classes of their choice weekly (However, we understand that it can be difficult to consistently attend 3 classes per week for six weeks, therefore the 18 class pass will be valid for 3 months from the start date of the course).

About the Instructors:
EXPERIENCE: Danielle was teaching Yoga for 8 years in Cyprus where she founded Yoga Limassol before joining Yoga House as a lead instructor 3 years ago.
Danielle draws from her extensive background in Hatha Yoga, Yoga Flow and Power Yoga to weave together a mixture of unique and traditional yoga classes. She recently moved to Dubai to become a Lead Instructor at Yoga House. Her ethos as a teacher is to bring the student to a place of self-healing. Mind, body and spirit are all one and cannot be clearly separated.
“Wisdom is knowing we are all One. Love is what it feels like and Compassion is what it acts like”.
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 realised 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 authorised 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.
