I am a citizen of the world! I come from both middle eastern and European backgrounds, I grew up in the gulf and lived in North America. There are pieces of my heart in all corners of the planet, even in countries I haven't visited yet. I believe that every step I took in this lifetime has led me to the doorsteps of my first yoga home ever in Montreal, Canada. My teachers are world renowned Ashtanga yoga teachers: Mark & Joanne Darby, and R. Sharath Jois. I am blessed to have had the opportunity to spend time with and learn from beautiful teachers Kino MacGregor, David Robson, Terri McCollum, Jamie Lee and many many more. I am thankful for each and every experience, encounter, discussion and class.
In 2013, I opened my very own yoga studio in Dubai with the intention to teach Ashtanga yoga in the tradition of Guruji Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in its purest form. The Yoga Room is the home of Ashtanga yoga in Dubai, the very first yoga studio in Dubai dedicated to teaching Ashtanga yoga. We run a daily morning Mysore program and have evening led classes that welcome students of all levels. We are also open on weekends! We have had the honour of hosting KPJAYI authorized and certified Ashtanga yoga teachers to lead weekend-long workshops and yoga immersions in our space.
As a yoga student and a dedicated practitioner of Ashtanga yoga, my dream is to share my experience and everything I've learned and will learn with anyone that crosses paths with me.
