Yoga with Zena is fundamentally a healing practice.
The world is often a chaotic and unsettling place, as well as inspiring and beautiful. When the going gets tough, we can access our resilience through our inner resources of strength and stability: breath, self-awareness and mindful movement. Transformation is accessible to everyone.
Stress & trauma are part of life, and learning to deal with them in ever more healthier and optimal ways are at the core of my yoga classes. I became a certified yoga teacher in 2009, by the the Sivananda Ashram, and I have been teaching regularly ever since.
My approach is gentle and eclectic, drawing from different yoga schools and ancient body-mind practices including QiGong and Tai Chi.
My classes and workshops are offered in Arabic and English and I am dedicated to make these practices available in places where they are usually not.
I am also a certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP), offering private sessions in this alternative award-winning approach for healing trauma founded by American body-based psychotherapist Dr. Peter Levine.
My Somatic Experiencing Practice is informed by NeuroAffective Touch, which addresses peri-natal traumas in the earliest years of life, and by Bodynamics the Scandinavian school of body-based psychotherapy which explores muscle tension through the lens of developmental psychology.
