Raised in India, Yasmin has been immersed in the tradition of yoga since childhood, returning in her adult life to live and study as a yoga teacher in Mysore and the Himalayas, training in Hatha, Ashtanga and Iyengar styles. Through her personal realisations and passion for the discipline, Yazmin felt impelled to return to the West to share the wisdom of this ancient culture as a path to truth and self-realisation.
Yazmin’s teaching style is deep, strong and guided by intuition, with mindfully choreographed sequences, and variations for all levels. She encourages students to honour their bodies and feelings, whilst bringing attention to their breath and intelligent alignment. Where appropriate Yasmin enjoys using inspirational music, mood lighting and aromatherapy, all peppered with heartfelt philosophy.
During her pregnancy, Yazmin went on to study with some of the pioneers of prenatal yoga and birth, further training as a Doula with the world renowned obstetrician Michel Odent. She leads pregnancy yoga classes and private birth preparation sessions, feeling both passionate and privileged in being able to support and guide new mums and dads through their journey from pregnancy into parenthood.
Yazmin offers gratitude to all her teachers past and present and considers some of her main influences to be Jiddu Krishnamurti, Vanda Scaravelli, BKS Iyengar, Gary Carter, Donna Farhi, Rod Stryker and Max Strom.
