Shadia was introduced to Bikram Yoga in 2013 by an old High School friend (also an instructor at this studio) and was hooked! Having lived with Arthritis for now almost 20 years, she began to feel the amazing benefits, mentally and physically. In 2015, she quit her job and pursued her 200 RYT Hot Yoga Teacher Training (while four months pregnant!) and has been in love ever since! In addition to yoga, Shadia dances whenever she can, as often as she can. Currently she is certified and teaches Bikram, Pure Power, Hot Pilates, Hot Barre and BUTI. There is nothing she loves more than using her body in every way possible and discovering all the amazing things it can do! For fun and love, Shadia is a company member of Keegan Theatre and co-founder of independent amateur belly dance troupe, Anuket Ascending. When not working or practicing, Shadia can be found “attempting this parent thing” to her heavenly flower, Lailani.
