YOSHIO HAMA ॐ ACTIVE MEDITATION
I started practicing yoga in Caracas, Venezuela in 1999. Between 1999 and 2008 I had the opportunity to study Vinyasa Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Rocket and Iyengar Yoga under the guidance of different yoga instructors. In 2008, I came to New York with the intention of practicing and studying all styles of yoga. The first studio that I visited was the Dharma Yoga Center, and the same day I took my first class with Sri Dharma Mittra. This day started my new life. I found my Guru, found the yoga and found a new spiritual family. I have never taken class in another yoga studio in New York to date. I am currently certified at 200, 500 & 800 Hour Dharma Yoga Life of a Yogi Teacher Training Program and 70H Rocket Advanced Asana Training.
The teachings of Sri Dharma bring me the light of the real practice of yoga. By observing Yama and Niyama as the foundation of daily practice, we learn to surrender our ego and attain the purity of the mind to come to understand that Divinity dwells in everyone. To teach Dharma Yoga means to transmit the Sri Dharma message of compassion, collective mind and love for God.
