So, Brahmani Yoga wants you to shed off the dogmas associated with yoga and practice at your own pace, fluidity and strength.
The center is unique in teaching yoga in that it does not work by following strict discipline. Rather, it believes that all bodies may not be alike and, therefore, what works for one might not work for other. It helps every individual find his/her own speed and intensity. After all, the objective is to be well, free from disorders and ailments. For this to happen, it is important during the practice of yoga your body shall be able to connect and communicate with the mind and this deeper interaction will be able to set the framework of practice.
Yoga is not to be done to attain proficiency in gymnastics nor to gather brutal force, but to be well and to have balance between body and mind. Therefore, Brahmani has its own concept of movement. Being a dancer herself, he is able to blend dance moves with yoga movements for relaxation and binding the body with mind.
The center provides online classes in Yoga, holds events such as workshops, retreats and virtual classes and workshops for teachers.
