Yoga teacher & method

Tashi Dawa

Tashi Dawa is a KPJAYI Authorised level 2 Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga teacher whose objective is to lead each student to develop and adore their daily yoga self-practice.

Traveling annually to India to study yoga since 2004, Tashi Dawa continues to deepen her practice each year at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in Mysore with Sharat Jois.

She’s been a practitioner of yoga since she was in her teens and has had the opportunity to study with many wonderful teachers around the world including Manju Jois, Godfrey Devereux, Simon Borg-Oliver, John Ogilvie, Kristina Karitinou, Eddie Stern, Mark & Joanna Darby & many others.

Tashi Dawa has completed many professional teacher trainings around the world in Ashtanga Vinyasa, hatha, dynamic and restorative yoga. She is also an experienced Thai Yoga and Ayurvedic massage therapist.

A nomad by nature, Tashi Dawa has been traveling most of her life and has lived & worked all over Australia, South Pacific Islands, Asia & Europe. As well as teaching yoga, she has has a BA in Arts and a Masters Degree in Community Development from Melbourne University and has managed art, dance & community projects.

She was given her lovely name Tashi Dawa – which translates as ‘Happy Moon’ in Tibetan – by her parents who were followers of Lama Yeshe in the 1970’s.

Structure and sequence

We use the structure of Ashtanga Vinyasa in class, taking the time to break each pose down, allowing the body and mind to fully integrate the subtleties of each posture. This teaching method helps you to relate deeply to the nature of cause and effect in your body, mind, and breath. This brings fresh energy into the organs and muscles and awakens you into a deeply satisfying awareness of being.

This yoga method is not an attempt to make anything happen; rather it is an enquiry into the possibility to see more clearly what is actually happening. This enquiry helps us to understand that although we may feel trapped in habitual thoughts and behaviour, the awareness from which we see that is always free, always here.

During our yoga posture practice, we amplify our ability to feel life, moment by moment, and to be fully aware of the sensations generated by the intelligence of our body. This approach leads us to an intimate familiarity with what is permanent, so we are liberated from feeling bound by things that are temporary and impermanent.

Beginners often find they can experience the essence of yoga during their very first lesson

“Tashi is an amazing teacher, I learned so much from her in such a short space of time. Lots of love, Bindya”
