ABOUT YAAMI YOGA
Yaami; Hindi name of Sanskrit origin.

The main message and ethos behind Yaami Yoga, is that Yoga is accessible to everyone.
"If you can breathe, then you can do Yoga"
Yoga gives us the opportunity to influence and reinvent our realities, each time we step onto the mat. Your path and progress are not defined by the past or the future, but by the very present moment. The present moment is the only relevant aspect of life that we need to immerse ourselves in, and we are able to do this by simply connecting to our breath.
When practiced regularly, Yoga can become a fundamental tool to self love, healing, development & liberation.
At Yaami Yoga, we believe that everyone deserves the right to a happy, peaceful and fulfilling life - and despite your emotional, mental or physical circumstances - Yoga can be your catalyst for change.
Yaami Yoga combines creative freedom and art, along with movement of breath and body to unite the senses with the True Self.

Blanca is an experienced Yoga teacher, Artist & Designer based in Bali. She trained in classical Hatha Yoga with the Akasha Yoga Academy (200hr Yoga Alliance certification) and blesses the world with her ethical, sustainable creative vision.
The basis of her work as a Yoga teacher and performing Artist is centered around the knowledge that the body is a seed, a tool, and an expression of inner language; combining and connecting us, not only to our true selves, but also to Pacha Mama. She considers life itself the greatest art and the body the best alliance and vehicle for liberating manifestion.
Her own practise started as a teenager, where she explored the different lineages of modern Yoga. Her teacher; Theresa Poulsen planted a seed of Yogic History in 2013, which grew into a great passion for Yogic Philosophy. Her asana practise transitioned from mainly Ashtanga to Hatha when she became pregnant with her son; Tjokro in 2015. Her background is in the performing arts; from dance to theatre, and this background of emotional and physical creative language fuels her expression of Yoga as an extension of our true nature.
Blanca is highly active in environmental awareness and world love. She has founded two successful eco-friendly ethical fashion & jewellery brands, focussed on repurposing materials that many may see as rubbish. Where others may see a lack of beauty, Blanca vividly envisions abundant treasure.
Her main passion is to share the love, peace & liberation she has experienced on her own journey of Yoga and the Arts to beings of all ages, and from all walks of life.
