About

I am an experienced yoga teacher and pracitioner based in Finnieston, Glasgow. I run Finnieston Yoga Shala with Cathy Moran from Ashtanga Yoga Glasgow. I started yoga in my mid 20’s. A year after moving to Scotland from the Middle East and not long after the birth of my daughter. The past 11 years I have dedicated myself to developing my own daily yoga practice and I became a teacher 7 years ago.

Originally I trained with Bikram and taught Hot Vinyasa, Absolute Hot A and Yin. I discovered that Bikram was not enough for my body and I wanted to develop more strength, which led me to Ashtanga. I have been practicing Ashtanga yoga daily for about 6+ years  and I also practice Yin yoga about x3 times a week to keep my body in balance.

I am a mother to my 16 year old daughter Farah. I teach workshops, classes in Ashtanga, Hatha and Yin. I teach 50 hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training for teachers and in early 2019 I will be the lead trainer for the Finnieston Yoga Shala 200 Hour Teacher Training in Ashtanga and Yin Yoga.

I am also an Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Therapist and Reiki Level 2 practitioner.

I have trained with the following teachers: Bernie Clark and Diane Betts (Yin Yoga) / Harmony Slater, Philippa Asher and many others (Ashtanga Yoga)
