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.
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.

The Samyama 300hr Online Meditation & Yoga Teacher Training Course will run over a 5-week period with an extra week for study and integration. You may choose to do the full 5-week immersion, or spread the course out over a few months. If you choose the self-paced option, you must still attend one full cycle of live sessions. This includes all meditation initiations, the silent retreat, and all live practicums.
The lecture and practice videos will be released day by day as they would’ve been taught in person. This way we can run this course as close to an in-person course as possible and support each other as we go through it together.
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 course platform, Teachable.
We will be available for you throughout the week via one-on-one video calls and weekly sharing/Q&A circles for the whole group. Plus, we have a designated private WhatsApp group to answer any questions that may come up during the day and interact with other students. Each live sharing circle will be approximately 90 minutes long.
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
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. You will experience two profound retreats during this course.
- A 6-day meditation retreat based on non-dual practices and the revelation of the spiritual heart, 3 days of which will be practiced in silence
- A 6-day kundalini yoga and meditation retreat based on non-dual Kashmiri Shaivism and classical tantra teachings
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, kundalini, and restorative 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.
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. 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
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, Kashmiri Shaivism, Classical tantra, and more. There are so many beautiful and accessible texts that inform and inspire our meditation practice.
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.
