Ever since I was a kid, I was into sports; basketball, table tennis, throwball, netball, volleyball, and football. However, during my undergraduate studies (BSc. Accounting and Finance), my love for football grew. I became the vice captain and captain of my varsity football team in my last two years. I was awarded ‘Best Sportswoman’ by my peers.
I continued playing football upon graduating with Karachi United Football Club. I was fortunate to take part in our National Women Football Tournament in 2018. In Dubai, I’ve been playing with Predators FC and Smart FC.
While working in a high stress corporate job, I sought out yoga as a way to unwind and be more active. It was during this time that I connected deeply with the practice of yoga. As a person who thrives at multitasking and keeping myself busy, yoga guided me on how to honor my body, energy, and time. It inspired me to detach from the world intermittently and focus on myself.
Having experienced the benefits of yoga first hand, I decided to embark on a new journey as a yoga teacher. Through my own years of practice and education, I believe yoga can be for everyone. Irrespective of what your end goal is; gaining flexibility, improving fitness, or challenging yourself mentally and physically, yoga is a great boost to anyone’s exercise regimen.
As a yoga teacher, my aim is to create a safe and nurturing space for my students, be it in a group class or a personal class. I focus on assisting my students to develop a connection between their breath, body and mind, in order for them to deepen their practice.
In my yoga classes, I lead with the practice of meditation and pranayama. All the asanas I teach come with their modifications for all types of students. My goal is to enable my students to be confident in their bodies and help them to reach their goals.
My specialty is strength and flexibility, while focusing on alignment of the body for various yoga poses. My classes will have sequences that work with dynamic and passive stretching to increase flexibility.
