Mission statement

  •  " To follow the eight limbs of Yoga to empower, inspire and  bring healthy life style changes to individuals which can be positively reflected in their homes, workplace and the community as a whole. "  

  • Flamingo Yoga & Lifestyle is a branch of Flamingo Middle East and compliments the services of  the Flamingo HR and Recruitment Consultancy. Founded by Hema Laxman,  it aims to help individuals achieve their full potential, both at home and their workplace through yoga and lifestyle changes.
  • Modern lifestyle  has wreaked havoc on the health and wellbeing of people, both physically and psychologically. Constant sitting and inactivity,  processed food,  stress, immense pressure to achieve and succeed are the norm in today's world.  Obesity, blood pressure, anxiety and other psychological disorders are increasing at an alarming rate.  In addition, the dependance on technology brings a new set of  postural problems, exposure to radiation, headaches, fatigue and eyestrain.
  • At Flamingo, we aim to incorporate mindfulness, meditation, breathing exercises and asana practice to improve awareness of the self, and bring a physical balance between flexibility and strength. Through breathing and meditation techniques, we  instil a positive mindset,  while calming and releasing  stress, which is highly necessary in our present life style .
  • The non-competitive spirit of yoga allows participants to take responsibility for their own practice, with the potential to expand beyond this and begin to take responsibility for their life.
