Yama Yoga is Doha’s first Yoga Studio and was established in 2009 by Valerie Jeremijenko. Our goal is to offer the Doha Community a space to practice in a welcoming environment and to share our passion and knowledge. Our certified teachers come from all over the world and share a common interest in being part of the growing Yama tribe by sharing their knowledge and learning from others to all have the opportunity to grow together.
We offer the widest range of yoga, pilates and movement classes at two central locations. Our Yoga classes draw from a number of traditional lineages of yoga with particular focus on Astanga, vinaysas and flow forms to build strength, stamina and mindfulness. We also offer beginner yoga classes, alignment based forms, pre and post natal classes and programming and yin and restorative forms. Our developing Pilates program is developed in collaboration with Body Control Pilates, the UK’s leading Pilates teacher training organization.
In addition to over 100 classes a week, Yama Yoga also offers a variety of certified teacher training programs, international workshops, educational programing, professional development opportunities and intercultural consulting. In all we do, we endeavor to respect the traditions and culture of our host country and to advance the vision of the 2030 plan towards a happier and healthier society through such programs.
