About

I am an experienced yoga teacher and pracitioner based in Finnieston, Glasgow. I Co-run Finnieston Yoga Shala with Cathy Moran (my first Ashtanga yoga teacher). 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 12+ years I have dedicated myself to developing my own daily yoga practice.

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 17 year old daughter Farah. I teach workshops, classes in Ashtanga, Hatha and Yin. I teach 100 hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training for teachers.

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

I have trained with the following teachers and continue to study with them when the opportunity arises: Bernie Clark and Diane Betts (Yin Yoga) / Cathy Moran, Philippa Asher (Ashtanga Yoga) I have done two intensive weekends of practice in Primary and Intermediate led class with Sharath Jois, but as of yet have not made it to Mysore to study with him directly, which is my aim now my daughter is almost 18.
