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. As a co-owner of Samyama she aims 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.

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 is thrilled to share the gift of meditation through this Teacher Training Course with people all across the world.

The Samyama 300hr 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 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 each retreat happening multiple times per year. 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.
We will be available for you throughout the month via one-on-one video calls. Plus, we have a designated private forum to answer any questions that may come up during your practice and 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 round of the Live Component at the time that suits you best.
The instructor’s breadth of knowledge from years of practice is apparent. They immediately made me feel like I was in good hands, and their transmission during the practices really started to inform my own self-practice. – Teresa, USA
What to Expect
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 new forms of meditation and deepen the ones that work best for you. Experiential learning will give you the ability to guide your future students.
You will experience two profound retreats during this course.
- A 6-day silent meditation retreat based on non-dual practices and the revelation of the spiritual heart. 3 days of the retreat will include mandatory silence, though 6 days of silence is highly encouraged if feasible for you.
- A 6-day kundalini yoga and meditation retreat based on non-dual Kashmiri Shaivism and classical tantra teachings. This is not a silent retreat but a committed retreat attitude will greatly support you during this powerful immersion.
Styles of yoga
You will be trained in classical poses of hatha yoga, obtaining a thorough understanding of their physical, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual effects. Additionally, MYTTC focuses on vinyasa, kundalini, and meditative 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 yoga therapist has created Asana Labs where you will explore anatomy and alignment through practice, as well as an immersion into 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 our bodies in the purification processes that occur during intensive yoga and meditation practice. These techniques are gems that you will want to make a part of your daily routine as well as sharing 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. We will support you in creating a yoga business bringing abundance to your life and serving your community in the best possible way.
Philosophy and history
Building upon the core texts of yoga philosophy such as the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the Bhagavad Gita, and the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, we will discuss ways to adapt ancient teachings to our modern daily lives, gracefully integrating and taking our practices off of the mat. Philosophies we are most inspired by include Advaita Vedanta, Kashmiri Shaivism, Classical tantra, and more. There are so many beautiful and accessible texts that inform and inspire our yoga and meditation practice on and off the mat.
We seek a balance of practice, theory, and teaching formation in our program. This course aims to help you deepen your self-practice, give you an experiential understanding of the metaphysics of yoga/meditation and provide you with the skills to deliver these teachings with authenticity.
