Ananda Yoga International


Yira Carrasco-Kemlin

Yira felt in love with yoga on her first class and has been practicing it for almost 25 years. She is a yoga teacher with an international certification from the Sivananda Yoga Ashram in France and additional training from great teachers in Thailand, the USA and Canada. She’s also endorsed as E-RYT500 by Yoga Alliance.

All of her trainings and mentors have contributed to the friendly approach and positive attitude that characterize her classes, taking into consideration the physical condition of the participants. Yira encourages her students to begin or deepen their practice and open themselves to possibilities for change at all levels.

In 2013 she founded Ananda Yoga Punta Cana, a team of instructors who share their passion for yoga in private lessons, with visitors and locals.

“Yoga is not just a 60-minute session, yoga is not only practiced on the mat, but also off the mat. Every minute, every moment, every thought, every action, every breath is Yoga. Yoga is who you are.
