Yoga began with the first person wanting to be healthy and happy all the time.

I was introduced to yoga more than 20 years ago and my fascination with it took me to India for the first time in 1989 and numerous times after that. While in India I discover the spiritual benefits of yoga and so I practiced what is called Bhakti yoga.

Upon my return to the United States I took yoga and Pilates classes for a period of five years. During that time I moved to Kuwait and luckily I found private yoga lessons but it wasn’t enough… Yoga was an inside call, a vocation of sorts! So, I finally decided to make my dream come true and traveled to India yet again! I had the fortune of going to Dharmashala by the Himalayas mountains to get my certification as a yoga instructor under the professional guidance of Yogi Sivadas. I studied yoga and it’s philosophy at the Kailash Tribal School of yoga and holistic healing, registered with Yoga Alliance in the United States. Yoga is an essential part of my life. My yoga mat is my most faithful companion! I strongly belief that once you practice yoga mindfully you can’t ever give it up. Yoga is ageless, you can begin at any age and continue its practice forever. My aim is to share the joy yoga has brought into my life. Yoga is not only about shaping the body, it is also about re shaping the mind and connecting with our inner self.
