Travelling Boholana Yoga Teacher
RYT 500; E-RYT 200
Raisa Athena graduated from her 200-hour (July 2014) and 300-hour (August 2017) Yoga Teacher Training under Briohny Smyth and Dice Iida-Klein with Honza and Claudine Lafond of Yoga Beyond at the Absolute Sanctuary, Koh Samui, Thailand. She also took an Intensive Intermediate Handstand Training with Yuval Ayalon and Yuval Oz at Koh Phangan, Thailand under All Yoga Thailand last February 2019. She has been teaching classes and holding workshops around Bohol (Tagbilaran, Baclayon, Lila, Bilar, Loon, Panglao, Anda and Ubay) since 2014, always aiming to make the classes challenging yet fun and, of course, safe all at the same time. She has a passion for arm balances and inversions and loves incorporating them in her classes. She also loves the art of acro yoga as this practice takes you outside of yourself and gets you to connect with fellow yogis. She has led many 108 Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations) sessions firmly believing that a yoga practitioner gains more energy and mental fortitude to finish this moving meditation when practicing with a community. Her passion for yoga runs deep as she commits herself to a lifetime practice of yoga: educating herself continuously through classes, workshops, conferences and trainings. She believes wholeheartedly that her passion to teach and share the gift of yoga will last a lifetime.
