Our Mission

Who we are

Lightrail Yoga is the collaborative effort of Radha Krishna Lila and Benjamin Smielowitz. We offer yoga training, immersions and intensives, as well as yoga retreats and getaways. Radha and Benjamin have ongoing and specialized workshops and also offer daily classes and private lessons. They teach a traditional style of Hatha-Raja Yoga combined with their knowledge of Bhakti or devotion. Through this effort they hope to share the ancient teachings of yoga in today's modern world bringing awareness, compassion and light to all beings.

Radha Krishna Lila from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil has trained at Prana Yoga Miami and also by Sri Dharma at the Dharma Yoga Center in NY as well, Radha has been a professional dancer for more than 20 years.

Benjamin Smielowitz from New York, was trained in Classical Hatha Raja Yoga by Sri Dharma Mittra at the Dharma Yoga Center in NYC. They now teach various classes, workshops and trainings together and individually. Benjamin and Radha are also musicians and singers and have produced three albums together.

What we do

Welcome to Lightrail Yoga.  Our mission is to provide a serene, safe, and welcoming space where students can explore their own yoga, develop their very own personal yoga journey and self transformation.  We work to create peace in our world, communities and families by first creating peace within ourselves.  A consistent yoga practice will leave students feeling rejuvenated and inspired; opening the doors to positive transformation; ultimately creating a calm and peaceful mind, an open and compassionate heart, and a strong feeling of  self acceptance.

At Lightrail Yoga, our skilled teachers are encouraged to bring their own teaching style, and voice, allowing for a unique yoga experience every time. Through our own individual growth and with a strong sense of community, we open our hearts to the beauty that can be found in every day.
