Wishing to gain additional growth as both a student and practitioner of yoga, Laskmy made the decision to travel to India to complete her 200 hours of yoga teacher training. She studied under Dr. Om Prakash, a Master of Yoga and Ayurvedic Doctor, who has been teaching yoga for over 25 years at the Yoga Chakra School. Knowing that yoga originated in India 5,000 years ago, Laskmy thought this school, located in Rishikesh, was the perfect fit. In fact, Rishikesh is known as the world capital of yoga and is highly revered for its peacefulness and holiness. What better place to acquire the learning necessary to become a yoga teacher!
Laskmy holds a Masters in the education field. She currently teaches at an elementary school in South Florida while also substituting yoga classes at several Crossfit locations across the area. She has a number of devoted private clients who she is committed to working with weekly in order to deepen their personal yoga practice.
By combining her love of teaching and her interest in entrepreneurial endeavors, Laskmy developed her own yoga business and website in order to reach out to new individuals looking to start their yoga journey. Laskmy’s unique teaching style and philosophy, coupled with her passion for the yoga lifestyle, make her a great fit for any student.
Laskmy specifically specializes in teaching:
- yoga for beginners
- first time yogis
- yoga for men
- yoga for the super stiff
She believes yoga is for EVERYONE.. not just the young, skinny, already bendy type. Her style and teaching methods are great for newbies as they center on improving flexibility, strength, and awareness by focusing on gentle and steady movements through foundational poses and meditations. She incorporates the traditions of the Sivananda approach to all of her classes, tutorials, and one on one sessions.
Laskmy created this website, LASKMYOGA, to provide resources for beginners to get started on their yoga journey in a calm yet challenging way. Her hope is to reach out to those who find yoga studios too overwhelming and may have anxieties about public class. Why? Because she’s been there. Laskmy started her daily yoga practice right at home where she felt more at ease.
Few things you’ll gain from the website:
- You will gain a solid understanding of the Sivananda approach to yoga.
- You will learn the most essential functions for your yoga practice and more importantly taught how to put this useful knowledge into action.
- You will be guided through the entire beginner process of thinking like a yogi which helps you be the best you can be right now.

“My goal is to provide you with motivation and inspiration through tutorials and articles so you can dive right into the magical world of YOGA and all it has to offer. If you’re on a budget and find yoga studios too expensive, you’re in the right place. You can start right now, right here, right at home. I want to help you deepen your yoga practice wherever, however, WHOEVER you may be.” -Laskmy Santin
