Lamat embarked on the yogic path in her dear friend's backyard during a beautiful spring day. From that moment on, yoga grew to be one of her deepest passions and continues to evolve with the ebb and flow of life. What started as a fun physical challenge has become a sacred space for meditation and self-reflection, and through teaching yoga, Lamat hopes to spark curiosity about what lies underneath the world of physical forms. She enjoys a yoga practice that balances yin and yang energies, and so gives her students the opportunity to feel not only the vigor of slow vinyasa, but also the calm after the storm, both within and without. Lamat appreciates simplicity, and especially loves city biking, wilderness hiking, delicious vegetarian eats, and reading in the park.
"While San Francisco is full of yoga studios, it is difficult to find a studio that is a good fit. I've seen many yoga studios, including one with a version of Richard Simmons with a headset in 120F heat. Over the last 10 years, I have witnessed Yoga change from foreign and estranged (my first introduction to yoga was a class in "Stretching 101") to something emerging from off the fringe. Once in a while I hear folks saying, "Oh I should get back into yoga again." Yoga is becoming the thing more and more body’s need. Over the last two years, Yoga Mayu has become my home studio. It leans slightly towards the traditional side of yoga (mix of Raja, Flow, Ashtanga, Hatha) and I like this because you are less likely to injure yourself that way, and you leave feeling physically challenged and refreshed. The ambiance is calm, welcoming and generally allowing you to learn / teach yourself, without worrying about others around you. People are friendly. It's a great place to learn and recollect yourself before heading out into the big, bad world again"
