Student / Yoga instructor
What is your story?
My yoga journey started when I was around 13/14 and I was primarily self taught. I fell in love with the practice when I saw how beneficial yoga was physically and mentally. As a hormonal teenager, yoga allowed me to escape all the trivial problems I had in my life. In 2018, my mom and I spent a month in Bali for a yoga teacher training course which was a life changing experience. I was 16 when I started teaching classes in Bahrain and it felt amazing to be able to spread my love for the practice with others. I've always been passionate about the health and fitness, so these classes gave me an outlet to share the information I had about the importance of breath, human anatomy, and mindfulness. Teaching yoga has given me so much confidence in public speaking and provided me with holistic knowledge about the human body.
How has COVID-19 effected you ?
COVID-19 has completely flipped my world upside down. So many milestones of my senior year have been taken away which is sad, but the pandemic is a blessings in disguise in some ways...
What have you done to stay involved and up to date during Quarantine times?
Social media (mainly instagram) has allowed me to connect with so many interesting people and has given me a lot of amazing opportunities. The abundance on online fitness classes has given us all the chance to explore different interests and try new things!
What services are you currently offering, and how can our followers contact you?
I have a series with LIFT boxing club where I teach 15-20 minute yoga classes and mini workshops focusing on certain aspects of yoga. These videos are available at LIFTOnline.net. Followers can contact me via instagram @yasmin.abuhamad or email (which is linked in my bio).
