28th September - 4th October 2017, Casperia
Our teacher this week, Dhanya Costantini, started to practice yoga in 1999 and has embraced it since, embedding it into her life forevermore.
Dhanya moved from her native Italy to London in 2000 and since 2013 she has been running her own business, Dhanyaomyoga, having been certified as a 200-hours Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga Teacher by Yoga Alliance. Her Vinyasa Flow has many influences, from Ashtanga to Jivamukt and lately Prana Flow. However, the basis for correct body alignment and making poses accessible to everybody comes from her first yoga experience with the Iyengar method.
Dhanya is currently studying for a further Advanced qualification with the Aditya school of London, from where she is going to bring her deep understanding of the Chakra system, into her classes and workshops.
She is both a dedicated teacher and student of the old discipline that is yoga: practising it, enjoying it, and passing on its multiple benefits, including better posture and pain-free bonds, agility, vitality, mental clarity, serenity and strength of character, to cite some.
In her wider life, she is a divorced mother of two teenage boys. She holds a degree in Social Science with the Environment and has previously worked for a large media corporation. She has now dedicated her life and career to yoga.
