The journey into Yoga is a never-ending path of investigation. We opened this course from our own desire to continue this investigation, and for all who are fascinated by yoga, and wish to deepen their practice.

The course will give participants the tools to teach yoga, but is also intended for those who are looking for a personal process and learning.

Lola and Maayan, two teachers with over 1000 hours of training and 10 years of teaching each, and the founders of the studio, Sira Yoga, managed to create the place for yoga in the city center that serves a community of hundreds of students.

The combination of Maayan and Lula has created a course that combines techniques from all worlds – Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin and Rocket and exposes the students to a rich world and a variety of teaching methodologies!

“I first encountered the concept of yoga nearly 14 years ago, in Gandhi’s autobiography, when I travelled east at the age of 17. Indian culture since I first met it intrigued me, and I first encountered yoga through books. Learning yoga was alongside learning ideas from philosophers, meditation, art and Indian poetry.
