About Your Guides
Yamuna Devi grew up in a Yogi family with an Indian father and an English mother. Her mother was a yoga teacher who studied with Iyengar and spent many years in India. Raising her with Yogic philosophy and principles, she was Yamuna's first teacher.
Yamuna has been a part of the Ashiyana family since 2008, and has been a core member of the Ashiyana Teacher Trainings since 2010, teaching on 20 trainings thus far.
She has been sharing yoga and working in studios and retreat centres internationally over the past number of years. She recently continued to deepen her studies by completing her AcroYoga Level 2 and the deep tissue treatment modality, Alchemy of Touch.
In her sessions, she draws upon her experiences of healing arts & yoga and loves to blend Qi Gong & dance into her yoga classes. She is deeply passionate about her work and being a part of the healing journey of her students.
Her soft and gentle approach will guide you through your practice so that you can flow with love, devotion and surrender. The style of her classes is mainly Hatha Vinyasa & Vinyasa flow, or Yin but she may also include Acroyoga elements which are circle ceremonies, partner flow, therapeutic flying and Thai massage.
She teaches many 200 hour teacher trainings & Hosts yoga retreats with ashiyana and various venues every year, she also runs Ayurveda Yoga retreats. She mentors Yoga teachers & also guides Cacao ceremonies & is a certified SUP Yoga teacher too.
"Focus on the process of self-discovery rather than the goal of perfecting poses“
In my teaching, my mission is to bridge somatics, circular movement, new understandings in anatomy with Yoga Asana, and the roots of the Alignment Yoga method in a playful way, to create an optimised and individual way of practicing Asana and other modalities of Movement.
I was initiated into Yoga at an early age, watching my grandfather in a headstand every morning, having consistent Yoga practice throughout High School and finally became a facilitator upon teaching friends during my studies in Ireland.
As it often goes, I had to go to the West to realise my passion for the wisdom of Eastern Practices and Yoga, and made my way back to India to learn the science and arts of this ancient practice.
Twelve years on, I am still hungry to share, learn and engage in the bliss of Yoga as well as other somatic forms of Martial Arts, Qi Gung, and Primal Movements, as well as science-based knowledge to compliment each individual body.
