One of our favorite teachers returns to Palo Santo this summer to present his one of a kind Yin Yoga Teacher Training!
June 24, 25, 26
Friday 6 – 9 pm | Saturday, 1-7pm | Sunday 12-6pm
We’ve had an experience as a direct result of our yoga and meditation practice. A profound experience, and not just one. The experience continues to evolve for us. It’s become a process of unfolding, and of becoming. And it’s a process we want to share. Teaching yin yoga and meditation is an opportunity to share subtle and quiet truths that often go unsaid, and to engage your friends and students at a level not often touched.
To this end, yin yoga offers a seat from which to teach that many other modalities do not. Beginning with the nuts and bolts of anatomy, alignment, and sequencing, one can then move to speak to the subtle body, to the emotions, and to the mind.
We will practice being a conduit for the universal, age old truths, while also being authentic to our selves and what our own experience brings. We’ll celebrate our humanity, and our vulnerability, recognizing that to empower our students to live in the yin means showing them soft bellies and moist eyes.

Daniel Sitaram Das has always found great peace and joy in yoga, ever since it was introduced to him as a young boy by his grandmother. Growing up, he always felt drawn to spiritual teachings; books, teachers, and situations that would nourish his growth and transformation. While exploring many paths as a teen, he eventually realized that he could truly trust yoga to take him to the heights that he wished to reach. fifteen+ years later, he still finds this to be true. As a teacher, he shares his experience with heart-felt wisdom, using metaphor, story-telling, and a dry humor to convey even the most complex and subtle of topics. Steeped in the traditions of Tantric Hinduism, Buddhism, Ayurveda, Bhakti Yoga, and Vedic Mythology, he strives to use his experience to offer support for his students, and remind them of their true nature, inherent goodness, and boundless strength. Sitar holds several certifications in yoga and meditation training, and is grateful to the amazing teachers who have guided him. He teaches yoga teacher trainings, workshops and classes in the Philadelphia area, and produces the podcast “Satsang with Sitar”, which has been recognized as “New and Noteworthy” on iTunes. It is also available on Stitcher and his website, sitaramdas.com.
I don’t take your words
Merely as words.
Far from it.
To what makes you talk-
Whatever that is-
And me Listen
