True Learning Through Practice 

Please join Dikla Kafka, 500 E-RYT and Lara Ederer, 500 E-RYT, Yoga Medicine Registered Therapeutic Specialist for the Fall Viveka Yoga School 200 Hour YTT at Bala Yoga!

This specialized training will offer a unique path to certification with both an in person and online option to accommodate for any concerns. Students will have the opportunity to meet in person on scheduled dates or will complete the recorded curriculum within the week of live study. We know there is a strong desire to learn and evolve through this powerful offering and yet some hesitation; this program will ensure all health and safety concerns are met in addition to an impactful learning experience.

I started my yoga journey back in Tel Aviv, my home town, in 2003, after 5 years of Korean martial arts practice. I was immediately drawn to the magic and depth of yoga. I practiced Ashtanga, Iyengar and Sivananda yoga, and finished my level 1 Ashtanga training in 2010, while pregnant with my second child.

I teach Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Hatha yoga. I currently teach at Bala Yoga Kirkland and Fremont. I lead TT programs since 2017 and advanced trainings and Yoga Philosophy workshops since 2015.

In my spare time I raise my 2 amazing girls, play the violin and practice martial arts.


I was introduced to yoga in 2002 by a newly certified friend who needed practice students.  Over the next several years I ventured in and out of the practice as well as different styles until I found her “home” in Vinyasa and Ashtanga traditions. I took my first abbreviated teacher training and teacher’s assisting program in 2011 at Shakti Vinyasa. In 2012 I completed my 200 Hour with Be Luminous with a primary focus in Power Vinyasa, Vinyasa, and Slow Flow. I have spent the last 3 years studying with my teacher Tiffany Cruickshank and Yoga Medicine, a school that is an adjunct to eastern and western medicine with a yogic component.  In August, 2018 I completed my 500 hour advanced studies and added yin, restorative, myofascial release, therapeutics, internal medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, orthopedics, and cadaver dissection studies to my training experiences. I am also registered as a Therapeutic Specialist and am in the 1000 hour YTT with Yoga Medicine. 

I teach at  Bala Yoga, Ritual House of Yoga, TruFusion, Shakti Vinyasa, Yogabliss, and Verde Organic.  I also teach privates, corporate yoga, anatomy trainings, and have filmed an online course for Yoga Medicine and Yogi Approved.

In addition to teaching, in 2014 I co-founded Yogalab Northwest, a community inspired organization that hosts international yoga teachers in the Seattle area. YLNW has hosted Sri Dharma Mittra, Kino Macgregor, Jason Crandell, Tiffany Cruickshank, Chris Chavez, Amy Ippoliti, CarmenAguilar, and we have several new teachers scheduled for 2020.

Yoga Education
I have studied with many local and international master teachers and continue to be inspired by vastness that my students teach me as well.  I am most definitely considered a yoga “anatomy nerd.”
