Yoga Ayurveda Training (YAT) International
Yoga Awareness is an umbrella for certified teachers and students in Hawaii and Japan who study in the Krishnamacharya lineage. We have been fortunate to receive the Yoga Teachings of Patanjali and the many ways in which these teachings have been transmitted through T.Krishnamacharya (1888-1989). It is now our opportunity to teach these gifts to you at our Hawaii and Japan locations.

Peggy Jubert has studied, practiced and taught yoga in the tradition of T. Krishnamacharya since 2011, the same year she moved to Maui with her family. In 2013 she received her 600 hour yoga teacher certification from Yoga Awareness and RYT 500 registration from Yoga Alliance. She's currently working toward her Yoga Awareness 900 hour certification in Yoga and Ayurveda.
The principle "teach what is appropriate for an individual" is fundamental to her. She's witnessed transformational changes in herself and in students of every ages, body types and conditions. Peggy believes that if one commits to a yoga practice (sadhana) that suits who one is and where one stands, everyone can benefit from the improved energy, vitality and mental focus that yoga can offer.
Born in France, Peggy is a mother of two children, a longtime lover of arts, nature, organic foods, and caring for others. Peggy grew up in the green hills of the South West of France. She graduated in languages and filmmaking between France, Spain and New York City. She travelled and practiced yoga in many places until she moved to Maui with her family in 2011.
Peggy joined Yoga Awareness under Tedd Surman's teachings, and completed the Sadhana and Teacher training in which she found new ways to positively and consciously experience herself. Peggy's instincts and her beliefs in the healing power of the self brought her to Patanjali's teachings: she cherishes them as a precious gift she is dedicated to share with others on this path towards clarity.
