Aya Hossam

Aya is a certified 200 Hour yoga teacher. Through her yoga journey she came to believe that yoga helps develop mental clarity, body awareness and emotional balance. Her Vinyasa flows are opportunities to dip into openness, stillness, dynamic movement and balance while finding strength and flexibility in your practice
Aya’s classes are full-body flows but each has an emphasis on a specific area of the body while always using mindful breathing as an anchor to find stability and ease. Modifications are always offered to tailor the classes for all levels.

Instructor

Aya Samy

Taking it through ballet, horse riding, running & CrossFit till she reached Yoga. Then it was way beyond the physical & asana practice.
Through Yoga, Aya rediscovered everything she thought she already know ! She found joy, self worth & vulnerability within it. She learnt how to step her mind and ego aside and just explore.
In her class, Aya tends to make people challenge themselves & maybe sometimes be out of their comfort zone whether it is about strength, balance or flexibility yet her goal is to to let them discover themselves more everyday and she ensure that they do it with love & gratitude for themselves and for their journey and not for the pose itself.
