At Yama Yoga we love inviting guest teachers from all over the world to host international workshops in our studios, and have been doing so for over 10 years. Our purpose is to serve and give the community of Doha the opportunity to learn and practice with yogis & yoginis of different backgrounds who are passionate about sharing their knowledge and journey, and teach us ways to improve our practice and continue growing together on the mat and in every day life.
