YARA EL HAYEK

 

I commenced my regular yoga practice in 2019, balancing it with a demanding corporate job to enhance my overall well-being.

The profound sense of bliss experienced in Savasana consistently drew me back to the practice. Witnessing the positive transformations in my body and the therapeutic effects of yoga, I decided to deepen my journey as a yogi by undergoing Yoga teacher training.

I was immediately captivated by the philosophy and spiritual aspects of Yoga.

Since then, my path has been dedicated to understanding the intricate connection between the body and mind, providing me with a profound sense of contentment.

As I continued to learn and grow as a yogi, my passion shifted towards sharing the joy of yoga and the profound sense of bliss with those around me.

Immersing myself in the Ashtanga method, I became a regular practitioner at

The Shala Dubai, where I also assist Nathalie Daou.

My dedication lead me to study at the source of Ashtanga Yoga, the Sharath Yoga Center.

My goal is to disseminate the practice and lifestyle of yoga, offering people the opportunity to experience the life-changing benefits that I have personally embraced.

AGOSTINA FRESNO

Agostina is a dedicated practitioner, passionate about yoga and she has been assisting Nathalie Daou The Shala Dubai.

 

Agostina is teaching the morning mysore classes at Dubai Internet city branch. Here is a little message from her:

"I discovered the Ashtanga practice six years ago during a challenging period in my life. Within a few months of starting the practice, things began to take a different direction. Since then, the practice has been my faithful companion—a lifestyle.

The most significant revelation for me was not achieving impressive asanas and postures (which constitute just one anga of the eight steps of Ashtanga).

I truly grasped that there is something beyond the physical body; we are purusha (soul), akin to an eternal light that never goes out.

Ashtanga, for me, is a path in constant construction—physically, spiritually, and mentally. It transforms your life for the better. At least, this practice has changed my life, and for that, I'm eternally grateful.

In my younger days, I was a dancer and later began teaching dance classes. When I started practicing yoga, a few years later, I felt the need to share what this practice brought me.

I believe I was born with a passion for teaching and sharing knowledge. It's a privilege and an honor to help others. Sharing this practice brings me immense joy!"

PARISA ABAD

 

Parisa has been teaching yoga in Iran for the past 6 years and has recently moved to Dubai. For her, practicing the Ashtanga Yoga method gives her a sense of ease, contentment and discipline.

No wonder she lives to share her passion for yoga with others.

In 2016, she embarked on an epic journey to India where she discovered she was entirely immersed in the tradition method of Ashtanga Yoga. Parisa's practice doesn't come from a place of achieving postures, but from a place of genuinely wanting to discover herself and become who she believes she is meant to become: brave and authentic to her values. 
 

Parisa has been a regular practitioner at The Shala Dubai since she moved to Dubai and is currently assisting Nathalie Daou in the morning mysore classes.

SANTIAGO

I started traveling the world since the age of 17. Wandering around different countries, exploring cultures and connecting with people from diverse backgrounds.
Yoga has became a part of my lifestyle as I was nearing my 20s. Being a dance and gymnastics enthusiast, I was exposed to ashtanga yoga from a very young age although life has only recently allowed me to make it part of my daily routine.
My deep curiosity and sense of exploration led me to cross continents to India to deepen my practice and knowledge of ashtanga yoga.
A few years ago I was lucky enough to make a stop in Mysore India, the birthplace of Ashtanga yoga. I felt a deep connection to the source. a strong feeling of comfort that indicated I'm on the right path.
I believe that yoga is able to change one's life and make one evolve on a physical and spiritual level. It is a very personal experience and an opportunity to grow and expand.
I invite you to immerse yourself in this journey of self-exploration to experience the true essence and benefits of yoga.
