In 2016, at the age of 36, 14 Kg overweight, with no background in any professional sport, the quest for loosing weight and looking for a healthier lifestyle began. I started with P90X3 “X3 Yoga” class online. Couple of months later I came across Dina Ghandour’s (300 HR certified Jivamukti teacher), Jivamukti Open Class and it was love at first sight. The Journey has begun!
I was drawn to this practice after attending many different studios, teachers and methods, but my body and soul have found a new home in Jivamukti. It is where I felt I belong. I was attending Dina’s Jivamukti classes 4 to 5 times per week. In the same year, Jules Febre came to Dubai for a 3 days workshop and again that workshop re-assured my soul that I am in the right place. Couple of months after the workshop I had the opportunity to register for an intensive Vinyasa flow 200 HR teacher training program with Dylan Werner in which only 24 students were enrolled over a span of 21 days.
I came back home with a strong passion to share my love and journey with everyone. Soon after, I started teaching Power Vinyasa flow classes at a new yoga studio. Jivamukti global then announced the launch of their 75 HR program, especially with one training featuring Jules Febre (whom I met earlier that year) and HaChi Yu, I signed up immediately. I now proudly teach Jivamukti Spiritual Warrior and Power Vinyasa flow classes at various yoga studios in Dubai. Love and Gratitude for all my teachers. Your humble servant, OZ.
