Shamina’s passion for yoga spans over 20 years. Born in India, her childhood was steeped in the cultures of the East. Growing up she travelled throughout India, the Far East and parts of Africa, all the while soaking in the teachings of these different cultures. She brings what she has absorbed over the years to her classes believing in the benefits of yoga for all people. Her desire to deepen and embrace all aspects of this wonderful, life-changing practice of yoga into her own life, led her to teach and share it with others.

As a mother of two, Shamina has paid special attention to yoga for teens and teaches workshops that encompass asana, pranayama and meditation to build self-confidence, self-awareness and mostly, self-love at an early age.

Her teaching is grounded in the hatha tradition and her classes incorporate musical vinyasa sequencing with pranayama, meditation and a focus on finding balance within oneself.
