Our Team

Dijan
Dijan is a practitioner of yoga and meditation with many years of experience. Her work is a synthesis of yoga therapy, esoteric tantra knowledge/practices, and meditation. She has studied with several teachers and has been fully immersed in a yogic way of life for many years working as a full-time yoga teacher and therapist. Her teachings aim to provide ways to open up to life inside and out, in order to serve oneself and others.

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

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.

Andrea
Andrea has lived on earth for some time and traveled and lived in many countries. He has navigated through business and spiritual communities, experienced bliss and depression, checked out Tantra and Advaita. Andrea believes the genuine play of life sits in living fully all of our sides while watching from the middle. He has been a student and a teacher, a clerk and a manager, and loves life for all its facets of existence. He is fascinated by people and their authentic expression of inner gifts.

Andrea is the founder of Samyama and a Hridaya Meditation teacher. His intention in building Samyama was to create a home for silence and stillness amidst the movement of Ubud.

What makes this TTC special?

Outstanding teachers

Our teachers are dedicated and accomplished yogis/yoginis. They all have a solid background in yoga and meditation, and a regular personal practice. They will share their diverse gifts and skills with you from an authentic and heart-centered place of service.

A venue created by practitioners for practitioners

Our beautiful venue, Samyama Mindfulness Meditation Center, was born out of a desire for authenticity and a love of non-dual teachings. Meditation and inner work were the seeds. Love and a dedication to service helped to water this dream. Our facilities have been purposefully designed to support deep transformation, healing and integration.

Our unique location is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by jungle and rice fields in tropical paradise. We are only a 5 minute drive to town but you will feel far away from the hustle and bustle.

Amazing healthy meals

Eat.Co Bali is all about wholesome, fresh, colorful, plant-based food made from scratch right here in our compassionate kitchen. We offer predominantly organic, locally sourced food and care deeply about the planet and all life forms on it.

Carefree, all inclusive packages

From the moment you step off the plane in Bali, our friendly and trustworthy drivers will be there to greet you and transport you to Samyama.

You will feel supported with a plant-based diet, designed especially for this journey.

Samyama’s massage therapist, steam sauna, ice bath and other Healing Center perks are available when you need some extra care.

The staff and teachers take pride in the warm family vibe we create, where everyone feels well taken care of.

The Yoga capital of the world

Ubud, Bali has become one of the top destinations for yoga and spirituality. The local Balinese Hindu’s live their practice through a strong belief in karma and acts of devotion – offering to the gods on a daily basis. Ubud translates into ‘medicine’ and has always been a holy center for healing and purifying. It is hard not to feel the strong, yet nourishing energy – like a warm embrace – from mama Bali.

One-on-one attention

Everyone has their own unique journey with yoga and meditation. It’s not a one-size-fits-all kind of practice. We value the importance of one-on-one attention by keeping our group small, offering each student a teacher/mentor they can go to with questions, and creating a buddy system.

Our curriculum is designed in accordance with Yoga Alliance standards. Upon completion of the course, you will receive accreditation as an RYS 200 hour teacher.

What to Expect

Meditation initiations

Each week you will be taken into the depths of a different and potent meditation technique 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 and physiology

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.

Kriya techniques

We will teach and practice together selected techniques from the shat karma kriya system. This will assist our bodies 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 meditation practice.

Horizontal elements
  • Sharing circles: We will have weekly sharing circles to support the group during this intensive journey.
  • Buddy system: Traveling solo? No worries. You’ll have a built in friend for support and sharing.
  • Mentoring system: Each participant will be assigned a teacher they can go to with questions. Your assigned teacher/mentor will schedule a one-on-one meeting for any personal issues that you would rather address in private.
  • Evening activities (optional): some fun surprises to blow off some steam, sometimes literally.

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.
