Hala Alaw is a 200hr RYT.
I work as an IT Quality Assurance Analyst at VUMC.
I am originally from Iraq, I moved to the US in 2013 as a refugee.
My family and I have lived in several difficult situations (war, leaving
our country, losing my dad after we moved to Syria, moving to Jordan, not knowing if we are going to join my mom and my brother soon in the US), all these facts built lots of anxiety, fear, and insecurity.
I started doing yoga in 2016 and I've been practicing ever since, yoga helped me with connecting my mind with my body, reducing anxiety, trouble with breathing, and building/toning my muscles.
I wanted to be a yoga instructor to share the benefits that I gained from the practice and helping people find and blend their true values into their practice.
I more enjoy practicing and teaching Yoga because I do it with my Twin sister Nuha Alaw. I am so lucky to have her by my side and creating this Yoga dynamic duo.
