Himalayan Hatha Yoga
I am a certified Yoga Teacher from Yoga Alliance. I teach traditional Himalayan Hatha Yoga which I learned from my master Yogi Ashokananda.
My introduction to yoga started after the birth of my second child. And from the first time it was a big surprise how much better and happier I felt after yoga. I started to read and learn about this ancient system and realized that it is a great philosophy and source of wisdom. However, everybody can gain something beneficial from Yoga, independently of religion, age, gender and physical condition. Yoga helps one to find balance and stability in our fast and changing environment. It is an essential ingredient of my happiness and I apply its principals in every aspect of my life: professional career, family, children and friends. Through Hatha Yoga one learns to understand one’s body and inner nature as well as be attentive and understanding towards others. The wisdom of Yoga supports me in difficult moments and highlights the beauty of everyday life.
Based on my experience and the experience of other women like me, I realized that it is difficult to find time and money, to give attention to yourself and to your health. Yoga training is ideal for working women because you can practice it at home or in the park, you do not need special sport equipment for it, it is natural like your body and has a great effect on your well being. To get most of yoga practice and not to harm yourself it is important to learn the alignment and principals of yoga from the beginning. Many people think that yoga is boring and constitutes a slow sequence of very difficult movements: this is simply a prejudice that stops people experiencing Yoga. Himalayan Hatha Yoga is a fluid sequence of postures, with great attention to breathing, active engagement of every part of body, energy flow and alignment of the body. It can be adapted to different types of personality and physical conditions. Regular practice will help you to strengthen and improve flexibility of your body, release tension and bring more stability and clarity to your mind.
I am very glad that I had chance to learn this style from great master of Yoga and Meditation Yogi Ashokananda.
Most important thing which I learned is that Teaching of Yoga or Mediation requires stability, openness and capacity to shear energy and love with others which is only possible if one is connected with himself. Teaching Yoga motivated me to improve, to free myself from false projections which I got about myself in life. Regular practice of Yoga, Meditation and self-study helped to find my inner truth and essential internal freedom, stability and energy which I try to transmit to others during lessons.
Now I understand that a journey of yoga teaching starts from self-study and self-connection. There is no such thing as teaching yoga but sharing your love and helping other people find their true self. “As soon as you say I am a Yoga Teacher you put yourself above others and this act itself brings you further away from yoga” - Yogi Ashokananda. Basically, anything what you do from your heart to help people is yoga teaching. We all do it as we can, somebody helps his friends, elderly parents, somebody spends Christmas night helping homeless people. When I meet these people, they teach me yoga more than anatomy manual or asana book.
Constant self-development, connection to yourself and kindness, this is what important to start journey of yoga teaching.
The classes are mixed group classes of 6-7 people with individual attention to every person. It is an intensive class but affordable for beginners, at the same time challenging for intermediate level. Each person learns how to listen to his body and adjust the posture according to his limits and physical conditions. Advanced students are given an opportunity to practice more challenging postures which require extra strength and flexibility. The class is constructed as a well-designed sequence, the main focus is given to breath, alignment and energy flow. Big attention is given not only to asanas but also to transition from one asana to another. We use elements of pranayama, kriya yoga and meditation during the class to get the best benefit from the yoga practice and learn to use these techniques outside of class when we need to focus or to calm our mind or get emotional stability. Best practice is a regular practice, that is why we learn as well as simple safe sequences and principals of safe practice which enables to practice Yoga at home.

"Dillaro strikes a perfect balance in her classes between the physical and the mental aspects of yoga. Dillaro's yoga classes are always challenging, yet one is never made to feel inadequate as she praises, encourages and celebrates what the individual is able to achieve, regardless of whether or not it is ‘perfect’. Dillaro, as a teacher, has a quiet, calm approach which inspires confidence. Dillaro explanations are clear and concise. She combines teaching strategies which ensure that her classes are a success: she models what she expects us to learn and provides opportunity for the practice of new skills. Thank you Dillaro!! "
