My name is Maha, welcome to my page.
My first yoga class was challenging, I mean it was brutal! I had not been taking care of my body or been active in years so in my second class, I got sick and left during the first 10 minutes. Its so embarrassing because Bryan Kest was the teacher, but its also a full circle experience since I ended up teaching yoga at his world-renowned studio.
You see, a seed was planted deep within my consciousness, I saw that glow, that awakened look that the yogis had on their face, that they experienced life in a different way, and I wanted that experience! So I didn’t give up, I kept going until I got stronger and gradually got into the flow “the yoga zone”. It didn’t happen overnight, it’s called a yoga practice after all, so I had to commit. I got there by putting in the time and doing the work, and most importantly I did it with compassion toward myself.
There is a saying “when the student is ready, the teacher appears”. After a decade of practicing yoga, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to study with world-renowned yoga instructors Travis Eliot and Lauren Eckstrom, and obtained my 300 hours Yoga-Alliance instructor certificate and now continuing my education toward my 500HR [RYT]. Much gratitude to Bryan Kest, Govind Das, Dan Ward and Byron de Marse who also tremendously influenced my practice. Everything I know, I learned from these incredible teachers.
Yoga was always my happy place, a space for me to heal. So my purpose in life is to pass it along and hold space for others to heal, and share what I learned throughout the years with as many people as possible. I teach a Holistic Yoga Flow that will challenge you physically and inspire you mentally, emotionally and spiritually. So get ready to sweat!
See you on the mat!
