Yoshio Hama started practicing yoga in Caracas, Venezuela in 1999. Between 1999 and 2008 he had the opportunity to study Vinyasa Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga and Iyengar Yoga under the guidance of different yoga instructors. In 2008, he came to New York with the intention of practicing and studying all styles of yoga. The first studio he visited was the Dharma Yoga New York Center, and the same day he took my first class with Sri Dharma Mittra. This day started his new life. He found his Guru, found the yoga and found a new spiritual family. He has never taken class in another yoga studio in New York to date. He is a 200, 500 and 800-Hour Dharma Yoga Certified Teacher. For him, to teach Dharma Yoga means to transmit Sri Dharma’s message of compassion, collective mind and love for God.
