Puri Vyana

Puri was born in Klunkung Bali (Indonesia). She grew up in the city of Malang. Where she completed studies, after developing an unknown illness she joined an Ashram where she started meditation and Asana’s practice.Once fully healed her way to give back to the Ashram community was to give Yoga classes, requests started to come all around for Puri and, that’s how her Yoga teaching journey gave birth! She decided to complete her teaching with specific certificates such as: 30h Kapha Yoga for alignment, Kundalini Meditation/ Holistic healing certification, 200h Classic Yoga from India/ Hatha.

Puri’s favorite thing about teaching Yoga is the feeling to help and give back, help others like she has been helped in the most challenging times. She firmly believes that anything is possible with love and support. When she is not teaching you can find her gardening, studying Ayurveda or singing!

His classes range from dynamic flow sequences, hatha yoga, and restorative yoga, all with a focus on proper alignment. “Yoga is an ancient art of self-healing that must be discovered by experience.
