Aisha’s Yoga journey has been inspired by Yoga’s celebration of individuality, and how that attitude can then be applied off the mat throughout our life experiences. Infinitely curious, she is passionate about finding ways to make complicated matters feel simple and attainable, especially when it involves understanding our bodies and thought processes. Her classes lead students through a fluid Vinyasa flow that blends playful challenges and nourishing movements, helping us connect to our untapped potential as well as our bodies’ natural ability to self-heal. She loves giving students the space to discover that they are capable of more than they ever imagined. With regular practice, students can expect to get stronger, move with mindfulness and ease (on and off the mat), develop a sense of playfulness, and feel uplifted as they start to increasingly believe in their own potential.

Ismahan began her yoga practice more than 10 years ago; experiencing insomnia during the time she was obtaining her masters degree, someone suggested yoga, and it worked wonders. Many years later, Ismahan left an investment banking career, and in her journey to find a well balanced life, she stumbled onto yoga again, but this time with more curiosity and commitment. “The best way to learn something is to teach it’ she once read. Although she initially took her teacher training to deepen her own practice, she realized there is nothing sweeter than to share a part of her heart with others.

Maryam Almutawa RYT200
Maryam was first introduced to yoga in 2015 but only really committed to her practice after joining Namaste in January 2016. In the beginning, her yoga practice was a way to escape life’s daily chaos but somewhere along the journey she got addicted to that ‘yoga high’ that just kept me going back to my mat.
To Maryam, Yoga is about being more herself and she believes that there is no greater gift than to be comfortable in your own skin and at peace in your mind.
The perfect yoga class for Maryam is one where you have a good old sweat session but also get the chance to sit still and observe.
When she not practicing yoga on the mat, I’m striking poses on a paddle board, cycling and spending time outdoors.
