Salamat derives from common dialects of the Philippines meaning "Gratitude" in connection with the Persian translation meaning health.
Salamat Yoga was designed as a gateway to influence new demographics through immersive pop-up community experiences of gratitude & mindful movements.
The intent is to bridge the gap by encouraging diversity & eliminating the stereotypes of yoga to create a good vibe experience for the masses.
