Valerie Jeremijenko (ERYT 500 since 2006, PhD, MFA.)

With over 30 years of practice and teaching experience and 15 years of leading teacher training programs Valerie invests in the personal and professional development of students using the tools of asana, practical philosophy and the simple joy of practice. She infuses her classes with warmth, humour and compassion focusing on self-study and self-nurture for the duration of the program.

Rachel Kang (ERYT 200)

Formerly a microbiology technician, Rachel turned to yoga in humble hopes of improving her mental health. Unbeknownst to her, she was stepping into the path of her soul calling. She has been teaching yoga & meditation in Koh Phangan for the last three years and specialises in the gentler forms of yoga – yin & restorative. She emphasises understanding the biological connection between yoga, pranayama, meditation and the body. 

Alona Dzyvatovska (ERYT 200)

Since completing her teacher training in Bali in 2019 Alona has fully dedicated herself to the practice of yoga and used it as a tool for trauma-recovery, self-confidence and self-renewal. In her classes she tests her students’ limits to help them find self-love and inner strength.

Quotation Marks

I was very satisfied with the training I received at Yama Yoga Studios. The program was broad in its scope and the teachers offered invaluable guidance throughout. I particularly appreciated the open mindedness with which Valerie encouraged us to approach varied perspectives, even when they were at odds with her own. To me, this is the hallmark of an accomplished educator
