INTERVIEW

What do you do best?
– What I do best is believe in the excellence of human beings.

What makes you the best?
– Being a humble student of life.

What are your aspirations?
– To continue planting and spreading the seeds of yoga, not only through the teaching platform, but through actions and words, play, art, poetry, photography, and design.

Biggest Success?
– Having two jobs I am passionate about (Architecture and teaching Yoga), when most people on this planet feel stuck with one job they despise. But the real success, is in having found ways to bridge both disciplines together. I teach Yoga as the architecture of the body and the soul. I design spaces with positive energy, sustainability and kindness in mind. Both disciplines have allowed me to truly understand the full spectrum of space. Yoga refurbishes and expands our inner space, Architecture defines our external space, our environment.

Most Challenging Moment?
– The moment a loved one must go.

Favorite Motto?
– “Curiosity didn’t kill the cat, ignorance did.”

– My Osteopaths
– Leonardo Da Vinci.

Favorite Places?
– Union Square Yoga, the Yoga studio I founded and designed in Beirut Lebanon.
