After almost 2 decades in the hectic and fast-paced world of Corporate America, I finally realized the damaging effects of the stressful nature of my job and life in general. I have suffered from depression and anxiety and continuously becoming unhappier with my job. I also suffered from Type 2 Diabetes. I felt like I’m losing control of my health and becoming more aware that I needed a big change in my life.
I have been introduced to Bikram Yoga in May 2006 and quickly realized the limitless benefits of hot yoga. I quickly fell in love with the practice and have been a committed practitioner ever since. Needless to say, I was completely healed from my depression, anxiety & Type 2 Diabetes only less than 6 months of solid practice. It is such a big & powerful testimony I will carry with me forever! I also have developed a deeper understanding and passion for my practice that I wanted to become a vessel & messenger of this powerful & proven effective natural healing method.
After 4 years of practicing my Bikram Yoga, I decided to go the Teachers’ Training in the Fall of 2010 in San Diego, California.
Currently (Spring 2018), I have about 12 years combined experience as a committed practitioner and a Bikram Yoga teacher. I have taught about 7,000 classes under my belt. In the Fall of 2012, I also have left the United States to live in Dubai, United Arab Emirates for about 1-1/2 years to become the main/pioneer Bikram Yoga teacher of the 3rd & the newest Bikram Yoga studio in Dubai at that time.
Now, I am very committed & focused in being of service to my community in providing a wonderful yoga studio for the healing & growth of every student.
