After a decade career in medical and pharmaceutical industry, I began teaching yoga in Brussels in 2008, and qualified as a yoga therapist through the JohnScott Yoga (Cornwall) . I have studying various approaches to yoga and alternative therapies since 2004, and regularly learn from teachers in India, Japan, Europe, and US. Most of my work involves individualised yoga or mindfulness-based therapy, using Chinese medicine/ Shiatsu, Yogic and Buddhist principles to support treatment. I believe in teaching people, not poses, which makes each class unique, focused and transformative, responding to the needs and energy of the moment. The postural practice is just one gateway to understanding yoga, with the ultimate aim of becoming a more fully aware, balanced and integrated being. Life's challenges present opportunities for personal and spiritual growth, and serve as signposts on the path to awakening. Ashtanga yoga, Japanese (DO-In) yoga, Pranayama (breath work) and meditation practice is healing, empowering and inspiring. It's deeply satisfying to watch people tap into their potential and discover and transform themselves through ancient wisdom teachings. My 12 years of developing a personal mindfulness practice provide tools and support both in my therapy work and as a parent. I have especially been blessed to spend years with Masters and great teachers on retreats since 2008. My yoga therapy practice includes clients dealing with emotional and physical health issues, such as back problems, chronic pain, high blood pressure, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, Crohn's disease, breast cancer, anxiety and depression. I also use Daniel Schroder's "corps astral" and energetic reading as a way to understand one's energy pattern to deepen self-awareness. The individual sessions that I offer can involve any of the above tools, including spiritual guidance. My roots are in Iran and in Sweden and I live in Brussels since 1998.
