About Huma

Huma was born and raised in the Himalayan foothills of Pakistan, where she was first introduced to yoga by a very dear friend. She moved to london to study (BSc. MA Social Anthropolgy) in 1998. During her time at SOAS, University of London her interest in studying the similarities and differences between the many cultures and inhabitants of the world was fuelled intellectually.  Yoga provided a practical way of experiencing and embodying these differences while at the same time recognising that there is a universal intelligence that is common between each and every one of us.

“My aim is to help students appreciate and nourish the gift of life in each moment. Being in their body-mind both on and off the mat.” Huma has been teaching yoga since 2004, training first in the Bihar School with Krishna Uprety in Nepal, Desikachar and his therapists at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in India, Moksha Yoga with Ted Grand in Canada and most recently she received her Advanced Certification in the Jivamukti Yoga method. “I give thanks to all the students of yoga, past and present for preserving the practise through the desire to seek and nurture their true Selves. My practise is an offering to my ancestors, family, friends and to life itself. I teach Yoga in humble gratitude to my beloved teachers.”
