Dijan is trained in the following areas:
Yoga therapy: After completing an 800h yoga therapist program, she offers private consultations and retreats on an international level relying on yogic techniques, ayurvedic knowledge, and different dietary disciplines.
Meditation: She is initiated in many profound forms of meditation such as mantra, yantra, laya, uccara, vipassana, hridaya, and mindfulness. Meditation is the core of her personal practice and her teaching.
Femininity: She created her holistic and mature synthesis of teachings and techniques from Tantra, Ayurveda, anthropology, and philosophy serving to understand, express, and balance the feminine nature. She is also adding her dance background into this profound work manifesting as the retreat series ‘The Feminine Way.’
Devlin is a musician, a practitioner, and a teacher. She was first introduced to a simple Thich Nhat Hanh meditation at the age of 12 and has been on a long and winding road to the Self ever since. Devlin is passionate about the link between art and heart and worked for many years bringing performing arts and mindfulness education to under-served communities in New York City. She is a strong believer in the power of meditation for liberating ourselves from unconscious conditioned patterns. Once these no longer hold us back, we can realize the true nature of our hearts and act with kindness, compassion, and ease for the good of all beings and the planet.
Devlin has been teaching since 2006 and contributes her background in pedagogy and her experience with children, special needs, and at-risk populations. After spending two years apprenticing with a reiki master, tantrika, and energy healer, she decided to dive fully into spiritual teachings. In 2016 she began focusing exclusively on teaching hatha yoga, meditation, and sacred feminine arts internationally. She is a co-owner of Samyama, currently based in Bali, and thrilled to be continuing to share the gift of meditation through this Meditation & Yoga Teacher Training Course all across the world.

The Samyama 200hr Online Meditation & Yoga Teacher Training Course has two important components.
1. The Live Component: We meet regularly throughout the year to create ongoing connections with our peers and instructors. This includes monthly sharing circles, Q&A’s, synchronized meditations during our 3-day silent meditation retreats, practicums with your buddy, feedback from instructors and mentoring. Participation in the live sharing circles is up to you – but you do need to sync with one of the Silent Meditation Retreats happening almost monthly. Please inquire for dates.
Hours of the synced live sessions will be chosen according to geographical distribution to best accommodate all participants. All live sessions will be recorded and uploaded to our trusted course platform. Each live sharing circle will be approximately 90 minutes long. Synced meditations will be approximately 1 hour.
If any questions come up during your practices, we will be available in our private forum. This is also a great way to interact with other students and instructors.
2. The Recorded Component: As soon as you sign up, you will be enrolled in our online platform where you may begin your studies at your own pace. You will have one full year to complete the material. During this year you will be required to participate in one of the 3-day retreats, and complete all practicums at the time that suits you best.
Doing the course online from the comfort of my home was a unique and beneficial experience. It has made it easier to begin integrating these practices into my life and continue self-study. It has also made me excited to do a 300hr YTT in the future with Samyama – hopefully in person! – Teresa, USA

What to Expect
Throughout the course you will be taken into the depths of different and potent meditation techniques by our empowered teachers. Daily practice of each technique will help you discover which form of meditation works best for you, and give you the ability to guide your future students. Perhaps the most meaningful of these initiations is a 3-day silent meditation retreat based in non-dual practices and the revelation of the spiritual heart.
Styles of yoga
You will be trained in major, classical poses of hatha yoga obtaining a thorough understanding of their physical, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual effects. Additionally, MYTTC focuses on vinyasa, restorative, and yin practices of yoga with a great emphasis on tantra yoga addressing the subtle energetic and spiritual effects of our practice.
Anatomy, Physiology & Ayurveda
We want you to have a good understanding of the anatomy and physiology of our bodies without getting overwhelmed by medical words alone. Our expert teachers will create immersions into anatomy, physiology and Ayurveda – the sister science of yoga – for you to explore yoga`s effects and functioning in our being from a scientific perspective.
We will teach selected techniques from the shat karma kriya system. This will assist your body in the purification processes that occur during intensive yoga and meditation practice. These techniques are gems that you will want to share with your students.
Teaching and professional skills
We love sharing our passion for this path. We want you to develop all of the required teaching skills; from making adjustments/corrections, to giving effective discourses to tuning into the needs of the individual and the group. We would also like to broaden your vision on how to make teaching yoga and meditation your profession.
Philosophy and history
Besides the core texts of yoga philosophy such as the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Bhagavad Gita, we will introduce tantric texts such as the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, teachings from Advaita Vedanta and more. There are so many beautiful and accessible texts that inform and inspire our practices, both on and off the mat.
We seek a balance of practice, theory and teaching formation in our program. Our Meditation & Yoga Teacher Training Course aims to help you build a solid self-practice, give you a strong understanding of the metaphysics of yoga/meditation and provide you with the skills to deliver these teachings.
