Introducing our newest instructor - Yara

Yara Raafat's passion with Yoga started in the summer of 2001 when she took classes with her teacher Mokash. She went on to become a Yoga instructor in early 2006. Yara teaches a blend of Hatha Yoga, integrating Kundalini into her practice. She believes in the invigorating power that Yoga offers the mind, body and the spirit.

The practice of Hatha Yoga can take many forms. According to Yara, "Hatha is an art of living. By controlling the breath, you recycle your stress into positive energy." The physical postures practiced in these classes stretches your spine, promotes health and increases flexibility.

The Breathing Room recommends Hatha Yoga for people who are looking for a gentle yoga practice that increases flexibility and reduces stress. It's very good for those who are new to yoga or for those who have pre-exiting injuries that requires slower movement.

We are pleased to welcome Yara to our team of instructors at the Breathing Room. Join us this Friday at 5PM.
