My Yoga Story

I discovered yoga about 7 years ago, in Beirut Lebanon, in a video where they taught sun salutation A. I used to take jazz dance lessons at that time so I started adding some yoga into my stretching exercises. 

In 2014 I moved to Germany and that’s where I got serious about yoga. I fell in love with vinyasa flow and started practising yoga religiously.

End of 2015, I moved to Dublin, Ireland, (where I am living now). That’s where I found Iyengar style and was diving deeper and deeper into various styles of Yoga. In July 2017, I got certified from the 250 hour Yoga Teacher Training at Samadhi, Dublin, and am happy to be on the teaching journey sharing a piece of my yoga practice!

My main passion is Vinyasa – moving with the rhythm of the breath – together with Iyengar yoga – focusing on the alignment and technique.  As much as I enjoy shifting the body with the breath, I love dissecting a yoga pose to understand the alignment and how the muscles behave.

Even when I’m off the mat, I am painting yoga! This brought me to collaborate with Samadhi’s Greg Walsh and illustrate informative asana figures for their Yoga TT.  After that I designed Yoga Train a sequencing deck with simple drawings of yoga poses and their literal meaning, to create your yoga sequence at home.

Yoga, just like art, is a universal language. It’s mind blowing how wherever we are in the world, we can connect through yoga. The yoga studio is like a little familiar place, it is a wonderful space where we can share a moment with strangers that can become as close to us as our family.
