Om Factory has two locations in NYC, several studios in South Korea, and a newlyÂ opened location in Hanoi, Vietnam.Â Over the past 10 years,Â Om Factory has grown into theÂ community-driven studio we are today.
Faramarz is OM Factoryâ€™s founder, designer, architect and genitor. A Persian native, Faramarz did his schooling at Kunstgewerbeschule in Basel, Switzerland, where he received his post-graduate diploma in architecture and product design, and at the University of Oregon, where he received his Master of Architecture degree. Since 1980, Faramarz has made his home in New York City, and in 1984, formed his architectural firm, Arte New York. Faramarz was introduced to yoga at Goldâ€™s Gym, NYC, which he designed. Smitten, Faramarz went on to receive his yoga teacher training at Laughing Lotus under the guidance of Jasmine Tarkeshi and Dana Flynn. OM Factory is the realization of Faramarzâ€™s longtime dream of creating a yoga community that spans across several continents.
He welcomed us at Om Factory New York and we discovered an amazing team, great people and good vibes! I tell you… Om Factory is not an industrial approach to yoga, it is genuine, authentic, fun and joyful – Isn’t that the way Yoga should be?
