About Hala Khouri

I am passionate about sharing what I know about yoga, somatic psychology, social justice, activism, and parenting.  I’ve dedicated my life to learning about the deep connections between the mind and the body, and I have discovered some incredible wisdom and tools along the way.

My academic studies, clinical training, trauma studies, yoga practice, travels, and motherhood have shaped my work.  I do lots of different things such as teach yoga, train yoga teachers, teach workshops for the general public, have a private somatic counseling practice, and write.  My goal is to offer what I know in an accessible way.  I love to teach, and I love to learn.  I’ve had the privilege to hear the personal stories of hundreds of people over the years, and I’ve witnessed many of them transform and grow in amazing ways.

I am optimistic about the future and I truly believe in our innate capacity to overcome.  It is our nature!  As we move through our past traumas, trials, and tribulations, we free ourselves up to be truly present rather than unconsciously repeating our past.  The more resilient we get, the more creative we can be and the more joyful and meaningful our life becomes.
