Former International Guest Teachers, Retreat Hosts & Therapists in Niyagama House


Dhugal Meachem | Aug 24 to 30, 2017 | "Leap to Lanka" Retreat Week

Dhugal, a fantastic Yin and Yang teacher and trainer, did come for a week with his wonderful students from Hong Kong and USA.

We had a lot of fun, did learn and sweat a lot and enjoyed our time. I was lucky enough to have the chance to participate, due to a last minute cancelation.

Here is what Dhugal wrote about his week here:

"Elke and her team at Niyagama House provide a dream background for any yoga retreat program. With their personal approach to service added to the natural beauty of the environment, Niygama House easily lends itself to personal wellness, relaxation and rediscovery. With lots to do in Galle for the active and a pool and spa for getaway guests, I couldn't recommend it more."

Thank you Dhugal & all the best for your next retreats and teacher trainings, Elke

Shelley was introduced to yoga at the age of 15 and has since spent many years studying with various teachers around the world. After a Hot Yoga Teacher Training in Great Britain in 2009 she has been teaching Hatha and Vinyasa Flow for a few years, followed by an Ashtanga Vinyasa Teacher Training in Rishikesh, India.

Shelley's classes are dynamic, with a focus on the individual need of the student. She encourages all levels of ability and believes there is a style of yoga for everyone.





Haseena Peer (South Africa) | 19th to 24th of March 2013 | Vinyasa, Hot and Yin Yoga

Haseena embarked on her yogic journey 12 years ago when she began practising Iyengar Yoga. Seven years later she was introduced to Bikram Yoga and became addicted to the heat! After finishing the Hot Yoga Teacher Training in 2009 in Thailand, she instantly began to teach in her own Studio in Port Stepstone, South Africa. Now she teaches at 'The Breathing Space', a beautiful studio in Durban.

Fondly dubbed "Seargeant Major" by her students for her unyielding manner, she guides them with an inexplicable energy full of motivation and inspiration.
