Raised in India Yazmin has been immersed in the traditions of yoga since childhood. She is passionate about sharing the wisdom of this ancient culture as a path to truth and self- empowerment.
Yazmin has a warm and sociable temperament and her approach to teaching is light hearted and attentive. Her primary focus in class is to encourage students to honour their feelings, whilst bringing attention to breath and alignment. She has a solid understanding and knowledge of the body’s structure, form and movement in relation to the natural forces thats support it. This in turn allows her to mindfully choreograph sequences, whilst offering innovative variations where necessary. When appropriate, Yasmin likes to uses inspirational music, mood lighting, aromatherapy, and heart felt philosophy, taking pride in creating the perfect atmosphere for her student.
Though her personal practice and that of her students, Yazmin believes yoga asana to be the tool that churns the soil of our minds and bodies, creating a fertile ground for precious seeds of wisdom to be planted and continue to flourish. In essence creating a community of people who aspire to live peacefully, cultivating love and compassion toward themselves and others.
Yazmin’s curiosity and adventurous nature motivates her on a constant search for knowledge in her field, always questioning her findings. She teaches one to ones, day workshops, and runs week-long retreats in beautiful locations around the world.
Her life's joy, inspiration, and greatest teacher continues to be her daughter Minnie Wonder.
