I discovered Hatha Yoga in 2003 and immediately realized the impact it would have on my life. Through my desire to deepen my knowledge, I sought to learn from masters, how to teach and share my passion with others. Along the journey I explored different schools of Yoga, notably Vinyasa and Iyengar Yoga.
In 2011, my encounter with he who was to become my Master, Sri Andrei Ram Om, transformed my practice and my life. Through him, I have discovered a simple traditional Yoga that goes beyond an asana-centered practice.
His teachings include pranayama techniques, powerful mantras, guided meditation, an understanding of the koshas (anatomical energy) and the chakras. Through him, I have discovered a spiritual dimension that I had never before experienced; a union of the body and universal soul.
It became apparent that I had found the means of expression best suited for me, to convey my knowledge to others. Hence, I became Sri Andrei Ram Om’s follower and started training under him. He has become my mentor, my guide, my spiritual brother and my friend.
In August 2015, he initiated me according to the Dharma Mittra Yoga linage and conferred on me, the spiritual name of Lakshmi Om.
I feel deep gratitude towards the universe and towards Sri Andrei Ram Om who continues to guide me on the path to self realization.
It is an honor to share my learnings with those around me, through love, humility, patience, humor, non-violence and understanding so that each and every one may attain self realization and ultimately, freedom.
