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.

Kaeb Al Gosaibi RYT200
Over the years my yoga practice went through ups, downs, lefts and rights. From dreading to get on my mat, to only practicing Pranayama, from becoming obsessed with inversions, to loving sun salutations which I so hated one day, from only practicing with an instructor, to loving my alone practice time, from practicing to heal to practicing to surrender. Yes! my yoga mat is my magic carpet it took me to all those places, it holds my secrets, it accepts my weakness and celebrates my strength :) I hope that I will be able to show my students the thrill of mastering and breathing through a difficult pose and the contentment that comes with holding and smiling while in a grounding pose, the joy of toning our bodies while quieting our minds. Namaste
