Samin Yoga is committed to bridging the gap between yoga culture as trend, preventative health practice, and positive enlightenment by utilizing the best practices of the East, West, and digital landscapes. Samin Yoga strives to connect the world to yoga through digital media, events, retreats, teacher trainings, workshops, books, corporate programs, and charity.
Namaste. My name is Samin, pronounced SA-MEEN, and I am an Experienced Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher, E-RYT® 200 and Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Providers, YACEP. I completed my training in Mysore, India.
Currently I am building a Yoga Alliance RYS 200 Track Teacher Training School with the specific goal of making yoga and meditation more accessible to the world including those that have less representation and fewer training resources. I am also currently developing an international NPO and writing two books. One book supplements my yoga practice and the other details my yoga journey from Iran, through India, finding love in Nepal, and immigrating to the US during the Trump era travel ban. All of my retreat, workshop, event and book information can be found at the Join Samin tab. You can also practice with me at my Yoga Youtube channel by clicking on the Watch Now tab.
“One should explain the lineage and the history in order to cut doubt about the authenticity of the teaching and the transmission.” – Tibetan Expression
I have studied multiple variations of yogic discipline. The different styles I’ve greeted on this path have been Ashtanga, Iyengar, Yin, modern workout and traditional Hatha yoga. In addition, pranayama, meditation, chanting, anatomy, diet, mindfulness, and yogic philosophy are essential to my practice.
I firmly believe in keeping an open mind and heart in all that you do. This mindset has brought me to various ashrams and yoga programs throughout the world. I have experienced the ways of Osho at the Osho International Meditation Center in Pune, India. I’ve studied at the Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ashram in Bangalore, India. I completed a 10-day silent Vipassana meditation at the Dhamma Shringa in Kathmandu, Nepal. And I’ve practiced at the birthplace of Ashtanga Yoga at Shri K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI).
Yoga has helped me through some of the hardest moments in my life and continues to help me to feel free, healthier, and happier each and every day. My objective is to share the art of yoga and lead others on the path of peace and harmony.
