I started practicing yoga in the 1970s. In 2017 I completed the 200-hour teacher training at Samadhi yoga in Manchester, and teach there as well as at other local studios. I have taught tai chi since 2008.
My goal as a yoga teacher is to bring yoga to everyone who is willing to give it a try! May I share my appreciation for yoga with you?
Through yoga, Shadia found something to ground her in a world of chaos. She believes yoga is the vehicle that transports one from the outside realm of a busy world, to the quiet space within. Shadia aspires to help others connect their mind, body, and soul through yoga and meditation, all while in a safe space, without judgment.
Shadia completed her 200-HR certification through the Yandara Yoga Institute, in Bali, Indonesia, and teaches Hatha, Vinyasa and Yoga Nidra. She completed her 300-HR certification through the SchoolYoga Institute in Cusco, Peru, where she also trained in shamanic healing techniques and sacred ceremonies.
She brings her creative background to the mat with each session, incorporating various styles and teachings for a fluid yet cohesive experience. Her students have described her class as being the perfect balance of invigorating and meditative, and always an intentional time to focus and be present.
