It all started when…

A close friend of mine asked to join her at this “hot yoga” class thing. I said sure, I’m open to give this is a try. That was over six years ago, and the rest is history.

Yoga Classes

Yoga is not only an incredible form of activity for uniting one’s mind, body, and soul, but it also does the same for bringing people together. Apart from teaching at Corepower Yoga, Sameera has led women’s only classes within Muslim community spaces, at pop-up fashion events, in combination with art education with a local artist, and at healing centered events for social justice activists and people in “healing professions.” Click below to request a yoga class.
