Each teacher has many years of experience and extensive knowledge in their particular style.
From a young age inspired by her grandmother, Radha was captivated towards a spiritual way of living and mind body connection. Through dance modalities, free movement expression and music she discovered a way to connect the mind, body and spirit, where stillness, breathing and meditation became essential part of her practice to create balance and harmony in her daily life.
As a yoga instructor, she brings to her students a depth of experience in Hatha and Vinyasa style yoga, having trained the acclaimed yoga master Sri Dharma Mittra with whom she learned meditation and relaxation techniques as well.
Radha strives to bring yoga into everyday life by doing, evolving and truly living it, allowing peace and joy to flourish within and spread to others! In her free time you will find her traveling with her partner, connecting to nature and different cultures, enjoying the beauty and experiences this world has to offer!
Benjamin Smielowitz’s upbringing in a tight-knit Jewish community in New York instilled him with a curiosity about spirituality which eventually led him to begin searching for more purpose and meaning early on in his life. In his 20s, he began studying meditational practices in Brooklyn, and it was through these experiences that he serendipitously found himself in the studio of Sri Dharma Mittra at The Dharma Yoga Center in NYC. There, he was an assistant and an apprentice of Sri Dharma Mittra and came to understand much about the scientific and spiritual resonance of yogic practices. He received his E-RYT 200 and 500 certification from The Dharma Yoga
Nicola began the practice of yoga more than 20 years ago. As an athlete and a curious student of spirituality, she began searching for a complete system of well being. The study of yoga philosophy, alongside training in the physical postures has satisfied that complete system of balance and well being. Nicola has strived to create a balanced life using the tools of wellbeing, which she shares with her students. Over the years she has completed an assortment of training that has helped her guide yoga students. She is certified and trained in Hot Power Hatha Vinyasa, Vinyasa Krama, Yin Yoga & meditation, Pre and Post Natal Yoga and is a certified Clinical Aromatherapist. It is with these continuous learning experiences that she shares with her students a therapeutic approach to yoga and asana.
