ID YANI

Main yoga teacher

Id’s journey in yoga began in 2014, when she stepped onto the mat for her first class. From that moment on, she knew that yoga was more than just a physical practice; it was a way of life. Despite juggling work and study, she dedicated herself to exploring and deepening her practice, knowing that this was her true passion.

 

As her love for yoga grew, Id made the bold decision to leave her job and focus on teaching full-time. In 2015, she completed her first 200-hour yoga teacher training at The Yoga Barn and continued to expand her knowledge by completing a 50-hour Assisting in Yoga teacher training in Bali.

 

For Id, teaching yoga is not just a job, but a lifelong journey of learning and growth. As she shares her knowledge with her students, she continues to learn and evolve her own practice. Her teaching philosophy can be summed up in her own words: “My teaching is my learning, my learning is my teaching.”
