“I lost 40 pounds and got off 2 prescription medications after just 2 weeks in Bali with Dashama. I was amazed by what my body was able to do after such a short time of very consistent full time daily practice and following her diet plan.” ~ Chris, Alabama, USA
“Dashama’s light and wisdom filter into every aspect of her unique approach to yoga. We deepened throughout our daily practice and group endeavors, while enjoying the liberation of exploring the island as we felt called. It was a perfect combination of freedom within a beautifully choreographed dance. I remain grateful and inspired.” ~ Ryan, Santa Monica, CA
“Dashama is an exquisite example of beauty, love, integrity, professionalism, health, inquisitiveness and yearning for learning that all of the future yogis can strive for.” ~ Mark Becker, CEO New York Yoga Magazine
