About The Teacher

Yaelle Wittes is a Level II Authorized Teacher from the K. Patthabi Jois

Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI) in Mysore, India.

Yaelle started attending yoga classes early in life with her mother, and

was always drawn to Ashtanga for its tradition, intensity, and the many

challenging aspects of the practice.  She began Mysore-style practice

with KPJAYI Certified Ashtanga teachers Mark Darby and Joanne Darby, and

completed their teaching training in 2009. Seeking to deepen her

understanding of yoga and develop her practice, she began travelling to

Mysore, India to practice at KPJAYI under Sharath Jois in 2010.

As a yoga teacher, she works with all levels of students, from

experienced Ashtangis to newcomers to yoga.  Her approach is inclusive,

and working from a base of Ashtanga, her classes are adapted to be

accessible and challenging according to the needs of each student.  She

encourages students to work at their personal edge, exploring their

limits while respecting their physical, energetic and emotional

capacity.  She fosters a supportive and challenging dynamic, creating an

environment for students to focus, play, gain insights into their

practice, and to grow on and off the mat.
