KinneretYoga Teachers


Kinneret Dubowitz

KinneretYoga teacher training was founded by Kinneret Dubowitz in 2007 – and she brings her knowledge, experience, vision, commitment to inspiring women and strengthening their professional skills in the art of teaching yoga and dance/ movement. Kinneret has a Master’s degree in Creative Arts/Dance Movement Therapy from Lesley College (1999), Cambridge, MA, and received her yoga alliance yoga certification in 1996 from the Toronto School of Flow Yoga giving her the current credentials as an ERYT (experienced registered yoga teacher). As well, Kinneret is a certified Yin Yoga teacher from Soghrati Yoga School under the teaching of Yin Yoga/Yoga Therapist expert Tracey Soghrati. As a blogger for “The Times of Israel”, Kinneret writes on topics related to Yoga, Dance, Movement, and the “jewish body” & how it is situates itself in Jewish history. She currently runs her accredited yoga teacher’s training programs in Israel and North America, runs retreats, and teaches yoga classes locally in Toronto. Kinneret’s Toronto classes are influenced mostly by the work of her yoga teacher and trainer, Kaila Kukla, who showed her the possibility for teaching a style of yoga which originates from deep within the body. This is the hallmark of her style for her yoga classes. However, both her classes and teacher’s training programs draw on an integrated approach to yoga which incorporates many key elements of various yoga styles.

Chagit Lanton

After many years of study in the field of psychology, Chagit sought out a therapeutic modality that married her love of navigating the mind’s inner workings, and her reverence of yoga’s ability to promote healing on a truly embodied level. Soon after completing her first yoga teacher training in 2013 at the Yandara Institute in Baja MX, she pursued a specialization in yoga therapy at Re:source yoga in Montreal QC under the guidance of Carina Raisman. In addition to teaching yoga and Pilates, Chagit is also a student and practitioner of Deep Flow bodywork, and therapeutic massage. She has partaken in over 800 hours of yoga-related training, and studied under influential teachers including Sean Corn, Meghan Currie, and Cameron Shayne.

Michal Willinger

Graduate of KinneretYoga, 2011

It is with great sadness and loss that we remember Michal (Erin) Willinger, who trained as a yoga teacher with us in 2011, and who was murdered in India in February 2014.

Michal will always be remembered for her beauty, intelligence, beautiful yoga poses, and her searching soul and passionate personality.

May she rest in peace … the peace she so deeply longed for in her life
