Our Team

•    •    •

The courses were created by Tal Swissa, Luna Alignment Yoga's founder, yoga director and head teacher, and are presented by our own permanent in-house small and highly experienced team of teachers - Tal, Arnaud and Naama - with an overall 50 years of combined teaching experience, in different styles and different class scales and ranges.

Tal chose each and every one of the teachers carefully to achieve the desired result of a diverse and complete yoga TTCs, which allow the graduates to arrive ready and prepared to actually start teaching.

Tal, Arnaud and Naama's different experience, knowledge, teaching specialties and styles are interlaced together perfectly, so that the students are offered a complete and profound view on the world of yoga and its therapeutic approach.

Our team of teachers is most humbled and proud in the fact that they have already facilitated 12 Alignment Yoga Teacher Training Courses since starting together in Koh-Phangan in 2016 and over 275 students have graduated these unique programs by now.
