This episode features Amina Taha and she is awesome! We chat about teaching yoga of course but also how a direct message on Instagram can lead to business for you as a teacher, because it’s exactly what happened to Amina.
With a background in fine arts, fashion and philosophy, Amina’s approach to yoga is one that honors the harmony between the bodily movements in asana and the mind. After completing her masters in fashion design in New York, Amina relocated to Dubai at the age of 27 and attended a yoga class out of curiosity. Ever since then, she was drawn to how you can unlock layers of tension in your body through yoga and through freeing your mind.
Amina is constantly studying techniques, anatomy; exploring yoga fully, through her own practice and teachings of others. In June 2016, Amina has completed her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training at YogaWorks, New York City led by Chrissy Carter. In July 2017, Amina obtained her 500 hour teaching certification under Jared McCann at Lighthouse Yoga School. Amina believes that precise alignment and integrity in technique are integral for a lifelong asana practice, and encourages the cultivation of sensitivity and awareness to the body using the breath. Amina’s classes, privates and workshops are dedicated to opening the heart, strengthening and freeing the body from tension in order to be free in its infinite possibilities of movement without limitation.
