In a culture of scarcity where nothing is ever enough, yoga gave me the courage to be seen and the freedom to speak my truth. The more I started showing up for myself from a place of authenticity, the more I healed. Not only was I breathing consciously, but I started living consciously. Yoga showed me a way to take all my broken pieces and make them beautiful. This led me to where I am now, understanding that I had the capacity to heal myself.
Availing myself to continuous philosophical, spiritual and physical education from various disciplines since 2011, I weave thought provoking messages throughout the experiences I curate. I apply the ancient wisdom to our contemporary modern western world in a useful and understandable way that will not only connect you back to yourself, but also the universe at large. As a guide, I use the physical body as a medium to the only thing that this practice is invested in; the art of letting go.
The Heal Yourself Method combines science and spirituality in an accesible way and helps the practitioner take charge of their life and make the changes needed to feel connected through vulnerability. Through somatic experiences, embodiment work and specific journalling prompts as well as yoga and meditation, the practitioner immerses themselves in a deep healing journey that will bring light into the shadow.
Born in Iskenderun, Turkey, grew up in London, England, and having spent many years in LA, I’ve been living in New York City since 2012. After leaving the corporate fashion industry to follow the giant leap of faith I embarked upon, I teach the Heal Yourself Method all over the globe through classes, workshops, immersions and retreats.
