Her teaching style is steeped in Dharma Yoga – a challenging, yet  devotional, graceful form of yoga, that is heavily influenced by vinyasa, lots of inversions,  arm balances, and some held poses. This practice can be quite strong and vigorous, though it is meant to be practiced in a gentle, graceful manner. This will aid in creating flexibility, strength, balance, concentration, deep healing, relaxation, compassion, and draw the mind towards meditation.

Discipline – Willingness to do the work and the desire to do so. In yogic terms this is also seen as a work of self-study. A surrender.

Yashmani Seepaul

Yashmani Seepaul’s journey began with the study and practice of yoga and healing methods in 2006, when when she immersed herself in the world of Taoist Energy. After experiencing first-hand the physical, mental and emotional benefits of yoga, she was inspired and motivated to share it with others.

In 2010 Yashmani took her first Hatha-Raja yoga class and was immediately drawn to the practice, receiving her 200 hour certification from BambooMOVES in Queens, NY in 2011. She was very interested in delving deeper into the practice of yoga, not only the poses, but also the philosophy of yoga and self-knowledge. That in turn led her to the Dharma Yoga Center, where she received her 500-hour certification in 2017.

Yashmani’s teaching style and personal practice are strongly influenced by Sri Dharma Mittra. Dharma Yoga is a system of classical Hatha Raja Yoga. A devotional practice that emphasizes good health, a clear mind and a kind heart.
