Damien de Bastier
Damien de Bastier has been practicing yoga and meditation for over 28 years. It was ‘love at first stretch’ when he was introduced to the ashtanga practice as it combined his passions for sports, meditation and self-inquiry. As an authorized teacher, his intention is to share the gifts of the ashtanga method as they have been transmitted to him by his teachers, Pattabhi Jois
and Sharath Jois. As a guide, Damien draws from backgrounds in psychology, bodywork, and yoga therapy to create a safe and nurturing environment to inspire people to dive into the ocean of yoga and embark on the transformational journey toward themselves.
When not teaching at his school in Bali, Damien travels around the world and shares his passion for yoga with insight, humor, and compassion.
“Yoga is a breathing exercise that uses the body to access the mind.”
“Yoga is very much concerned with what happens in the other 22 hours of your day.”
“The body is the external part of the mind, and mind is the internal part of the body… So anatomy is really the philosophy of your body and philosophy studies the anatomy of the mind.”
