Is Asana Academy Vol.1 for you?

Asana Academy Vol.1 has been created both for beginners and intermediate yoga practitioners but is also suitable for advanced practitioners that want to further their knowledge and widen their perspective.


Beginners will be guided through each yoga pose from the easiest to the most advanced. They will learn how to breath properly, stay grounded, and how to keep the correct alignment for pose.


Intermediate practitioners will have an amazing tool they can use to further improve their practice, learn new things and focus on those poses they tend to avoid in their practice. 

What is going to happen to your Yoga Practice?

This course will bring you a series of long term benefits.

What are You Going to find in Asana Academy Vol.1?

Once you purchase the course you will have instant access to a member area where you will be able to consult the lessons whenever and wherever you want.

We decided to structure the course in a way that makes learning easier, faster and long lasting. To be able to efficiently digest a discipline as vast and as complex as yoga the only way is to divide the information into many smaller bites.

The Asana Academy Vol.1 Method is built around this concept, and the idea that only when information gets absorbed by our subconscious – then we can access it, use it, and combine it with other information already stored in our brain.

Remember when you learned to ride a bike or drive a car? In the beginning even though you “understood” consciously how to do it, you still struggled…

That’s because the information had not yet reached the subconscious. Now you can probably drive or ride a bike listening to the radio, looking around, thinking about things that have nothing to do with it. That’s because your subconscious has absorbed the information and can access it without effort.

We want you to achieve the same with yoga.

Accelerate your progress with Asana Academy Vol.1

Asana Academy Vol.1 will speed up your learning phase, broadening your horizons in terms of what you can achieve on your journey.

Get in touch with yourself

To be able to internalize new poses you have to develop a deep knowledge of your body. Asana Academy Vol.1 will teach you how to practice with awareness of your own body, of your own breath. Take your time and step by step you’ll see your transformation. 

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide useful tools for yogis that want to deepen their practice being mindful. Our first product, the PlayPauseBe Yoga Deck, has been extremely successful and thousands of yogis around the world, from beginners to experienced yoga instructors now use it during their practice.

The Instructors

You will be guided through the course by Illona and Nathalie, and through some amazing flows by Paulina.

Nathalie has been practicing yoga for many years after being a gymnast in Belarus. She will help Illona explain many of the poses included on the course.

Thanks to Nathalie you are going to learn how to enter and exit a pose and what are the most common mistakes you should avoid.

Half Swiss half Mauritian, Illona is a free spirit with a passion for the natural flow of life. As a yoga teacher she accompanies people through their personal journeys and teaches them to channel both physical and mental strength.

She was born to teach, you are going to be amazed on how effective and fluid her communication is! Even the hardest position will feel easy through her teachings.

Paulina is born in Guadalajara, Mexico, but teaches yoga in Milan, Italy. She creates amazing yoga flows!

Her voice will guide you through 5 bonus Yoga Flows we have included in the Asana Academy Vol.1 course.

Read what Yogis say about PlayPauseYoga

PlayPauseYoga helped me revisit important positions with another teacher perspective. Which again helped me develop as a teacher

As a teacher I’m always eager to learn and develop. PlayPauseYoga and Illona have made a fantastic product that helps everyone dig down and really learn yoga

Going back to basics and really go into the positions is super important at every stage of your yoga journey. PlayPauseYoga is amazing/great in this aspect

Love that they’re taking position by position. So important to revisit these things. They’ve also included some great extra info. Illona is a great teacher and has some really amazing insights

As a beginner i really loved this course. So many of the ones you find online you have to follow a teacher doing a class. Sometimes they’re to fast other times to advanced… I also prefer to be able to put the screen away and practice with my PlayPauseBe cards. This course has really given me the tools i needed to be able to do just that, safely (as I’m a beginner)!! So happy about it

Really love that PlayPauseYoga have focused on giving you the tools, and then encourage you to practice without a screen 🙌🏼 As yoga is supposed to be a time for your body and mind, and not a distracting moment turning your head (maybe at the wrong moment) to try an follow a flow you might not be ready for. Or that’s moving to fast or slow in regards to what you need
