Yalda Younes

Yalda Younes is a certified yoga teacher from the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai (500+ hours), India, where yoga is mainly taught one-on-one as per the Krishnamacharya lineage. The strength of this method is the ability of the teacher to use appropriately, safely and intelligently different tools of yoga to adapt them to each individual, rather than asking the individual to accommodate herself/himself to a fixed idea of yoga.
However that doesn’t mean that one-on-one is the only way of learning yoga. When teaching in a group setting, Yalda gives personal care and attention to every individual in the group, while at the same time fostering a sense of community and generating an environment that is supportive and comfortable.
Yalda Younes is also a contemporary flamenco dancer who has taught dance for over 2 decades hundreds of students in Lebanon and France, an experience which rewarded her with refined body awareness, sharpened observation skills and empathetic pedagogical methods.
