Hoda began a dedicated practice of yoga in 2015 to find relief from debilitating, chronic pain. In her practice, she found the space she needed, in her body and her mind, to be able to let go of her career in bank management and home in California to pursue her passions. From the transformational experiences that followed, Hoda found the courage to answer her calling to share the practice of yoga with others. As a yoga teacher, she offers the lessons she has learned on her journey to find peace, love and strength within, and is honoured to create a safe and welcoming space for others to do the same. Hoda is a mentee of Olga Oskorbina in the 800-Hour Jivamukti Teacher Apprenticeship Program.
