“Yoga is 99% Practice and 1% Theory”. – Sri Krishna Pattabhi Jois
My first experience in Yoga goes back to 2002, I felt so drawn to it and somehow I fell in love with it, however due to personal circumstances, I had to stop practising and got involved in running my own business as a Chef Proprietor.
I moved back to Staines upon Thames in 2006. I started attending yoga classes in the local health clubs and yoga studios. My first yoga teacher was the inspirational Heather George. Heather’s positive support encouraged me to take a qualification in teaching yoga and follow my current path. I was also very fortunate to come into contact with many other inspirational teachers of other yogic disciplines such as Ashtanga, Tantric, anusara & mindfulness.
My previous job as a Head Chef made me aware of how very stressful life has become especially in the corporate environment. I have noticed how desperate people are nowadays to compensate and restore their peace of mind and physical health.
Having a background in Lebanese Cuisine, which has a Mediterranean influence, and qualifications in catering, I can offer a tailored yoga practice combined with advice for a healthy diet.
I motivate and inspire my students leading by my own example that yoga is a way of life, a journey to be taken peacefully and healthily in both mind and body. As with everything, although others cannot always see it, yoga is 10% ability and 90% effort in order to achieve goals. We learn to overcome our fear of failure as we progress to our greatest potential.

New Retreat – Connecting to Natures Flow
What is ‘Flow State’? People are happiest when they are in a state of flow — a state of concentration or complete absorption with the activity or task at hand. It is a state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter.
Nosara’s premiere yoga and surf retreat ‘Jungles Edge’, is just outside Playa Guiones near Nosara and has been called a ‘Yoga Mecca’. In fact the entire town embraces the yogi mentality of peace, health and balance.
Restore your body during the summer evenings with our beginners yoga classes. Suitable for all ages. Go to our Classes page for more information.
