DHAWI pienta

If you want to know when many of our Yogaja yoga teachers practice yoga, then drop in to one of Dhawi's Mysore classes at 5:30 in the morning! You'll always find a few of us breathing through primary--or secondary--series. 


Ever since Dhawi started her yoga journey, which was shortly after she moved to Toledo in 2000 from Indonesia, she found stability in her life.


In 2014, she decided to deepen her practice and earned her RYT-200 at It’s Yoga International, and then her RYT-100 at Yogaja Yoga in 2015.


Shortly after, she met her teacher and mentor, Taylor Hunt, an Authorized level 2 teacher of Ashtanga Yoga. She knew Ashtanga was her niche, and she has been on her own journey as a student and teacher of Ashtanga through Taylor Hunt's mentorship.


Dhawi genuinely believes “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” She continues providing the space and teaching a traditional daily Ashtanga Mysore program at Yogaja, as it’s the first available in the Toledo area.

When she is not at Yogaja or on the mat, Dhawi loves spending time with her husband and son roaming around town, enjoying nature, or simply watching movies in their living room.
