Sivanasana - About
Hi, I'm Sivan. I've been practicing yoga for over ten years and teaching professionally since 2015.
Yoga has taken me on an amazing journey of self-discovery and it's become my passion to share the skills and disciplines I have learned along the way.
I strongly believe that yoga is for everybody - regardless of their age, gender, shape or size.
Having been introduced to yoga in Rishikesh, it's been a constant companion on my travels ever since. What has started as some sort of "sport" became a big light in my spiritual journey, brightening every layer of my life, changed my lifestyle, the way I move, breath and think.
My practice is an infusion of the different styles that have crossed my path. Many years I have been practicing Iyengar inspired styles. In the past few years, I enjoy traditional Ashtanga and Yin yoga. My teaching is combined with all the pearls of wisdom I've collected from my various teachers throughout the years.
and have enjoyed teaching students in India, UK, Spain, and Israel.
I teach at my home studio in beautiful Rishpon (10 min, from Hertzelia, 20 from TLV)
In addition, I teach private clients, and in different locations in Tel Aviv / Sharon area
Join me at the Magical Journey Inwards.

Ashtanga opening sequence workshop
We will be focusing on the exploration of the standing postures of the Ashtanga opening sequence,
with attention to correct body aliment, the movement of energy within every asana, the use of Bhanda and breath to deepen our awareness.
Learning how to modify the postures to our unique body.
The workshop is suitable for yoga practitioners at any level of experience, and every style, not only ashtangis :)
PRACTICE ONLINE WITH ME
Sivan is a great teacher. She comes to my home to give private lessons and is very sweet, knowledgeable, and intuitive. I have had now three lessons with her and I always feel more relaxed, more flexible, and stronger after each lesson. Without me telling her she was able to immediately pick-up on where and what parts of my body I am not flexible or hyperflexible, along with understanding how to help me correct certain positions and postures.
I've had a group and private yoga lessons all over the world and I would say she is in the upper echelon of teachers. Unlike many other yoga teachers, she focuses on and integrates good breathing and meditation techniques while maintaining the correct poses. She has a good yoga and anatomic vocabulary - whether it be in Hebrew, English, or Sanskrit. I recommend Sivan without hesitation.
Sivan is a talented, thoughtful, and powerful yoga instructor. I took a private class with Sivan and 2 other students who were all at different levels and all had unique needs. Sivan guided us through a great flow that challenged each of us in our own way and made adjustments along the way. I realized that for years there was something I should have been doing differently, but never got the proper attention in a large class! Thanks for helping to improve my yoga practice Sivan! I highly recommend a private and/or group lesson with Sivan!!!
We were very lucky to have Sivan summer of 2015 to teach our guests and staff as part of a healthy living retreat.
Sivan is a sweet, vibrant, full of good energy and a big smile. She is a dedicated and knowledgeable yoga teacher, being able to create a class for all levels, ages, and physical ability, focusing on correct alignment and breathing techniques.
After seeing our happy guests and feeling the change on our own bodies and mind we are happy to recommend her services to anyone. Can't wait to have her back for the next season 🙂
