Cetin Cetintas is a Yogi who regards yoga as a complex system which requires much more than learning fancy poses. Born in Istanbul, Turkey, the 31-year-old assumes a deep responsibility and devotion to his teachings, believing a Yogi’s role is not a “job” but rather a position which can shed light for others to follow.
Introduced to yoga at an early age, Cetin pursued learning yoga and meditation in numerous countries including China, Tibet, Burma and Thailand. In 2011 he trained with the Dalai Lama in India. Following that experience Cetin lived as a Monk in Myanmar. His extensive travels have allowed him to experience over 50 techniques of meditation at various monasteries throughout the Far East.
With a degree in Biology from Istanbul University and courses in Sports Management at Anadolu University, he also applies his love of understanding the movements and behaviors of living beings and their interactions with their surroundings to his practice.
Cetin currently holds yoga teacher training courses, advanced and fundamental yoga workshops and yoga retreats throughout the world. His focus is on helping others to cultivate a deep spiritual awareness through the yoga experience.
Able to speak 4 languages, including the ancient language of Sanskrit, he has translated ancient yoga texts. Cetin is the author of the yoga book, “Finding Hanuman Within”. (2016)
