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.

The theme of this workshop is "Yoga for Selfcare" as we will focus on developing awareness and skills for a sustainable yoga practice. We will focus on the hips and sacral joint, spine, shoulders and neck and lastly on the mind.
The Intermediate Mat work course is the perfect bridging course for teachers working towards the more advanced classical exercises. It is designed to build on the knowledge and skills thatteachers have learned from their Mat work Certifica- tion Course and it provides an essential gateway to further development through other Body ControlPilates courses.
