About the Founder: Doron Hanoch
Doron is a Certified 550 hour Yoga Teacher (ERYT) as well as the director of the Doron Yoga School (RYS 200 and 500). He was introduced to Yoga and Meditation in 1992 while traveling and studying in the Far East for 2 years. During that time, Doron has studied at the Osho Ashram, with the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, in Thailand doing Vipassana retreats, and in Japan living and working with a Buddhist priest.
Since then Doron has returned to India many times to deepen his spiritual and Asana Practice and has practiced under the guidance of Pattabhi Jois and his family. He is fortunate to have studied with some other great teachers such as Richard Freeman (teacher training, advanced trainings and assisting), Rolf and Marci, Tim Miller, Adarsh, Shashadri, Cidananda, and a Vinyasa teacher training, as well as continuing studies and mentoring, with Mark Stephens.
Doron’s teachings are based on the foundation of tradition with a practical and non-dogmatic way. His classes are strong, but go at a pace that allows lots of awareness and focus. He teaches with extreme detail, shares a lot of informative tips both for body and mind, and keeps the class flowing with a fun energy infused with humor.
Doron is a trained chef, a certified nutrition consultant (registered with the AADP), an artist and a long time Zen student. He uses all his skills to share a holistic experience. You may learn about Ayurveda, a new mind focusing technique or simply how to get that head stand with ease. He is observant and compassionate at the same time.
Doron works towards bringing the experience of yoga on the mat onto all levels of life. Doron is a teacher of the full spectrum of yoga, creating a healthy sustainable bliss onto all layers of life.
