A yoga teacher who has made it her mission to break down as many social barriers as possible!
Hi, I'm Mumtaz - I am a Muslim, hijab (headscarf) wearing Yogi! I am all about bringing positivity and happiness into my Yoga and my classes. I have been breaking down barriers for women like me in the mainstream fitness industry, here in Nottingham for a number of years. I am passionate about bringing empowerment, diversity and a challenge to the status quo. Let's make things a little better!
My love for Yoga began whilst I was studying economics at University - it helped me better manage my stress levels and ever since then it has been one of my biggest tools alongside my faith to help me deal with all the ups and downs that life has thrown at me. Yoga has taught me to find acceptance of my own identity and has definitely has helped me to not compare myself to others.
I’ve been teaching for 7 years and after my recent trip to India, I am now an experienced 500-hour, multi-yoga style trained, international teacher. I also hold a teacher training accreditation, because I want more people to teach, share and benefit from Yoga.
"I feel blessed to find my calling to life and for me this is teaching yoga and seeking to bring people to this journey who wouldn’t necessary think it’s for them".
My classes are inclusive and fun. There are no prerequisites before you have a Yoga class with me - all you need is an open mind and a willingness to learn. For me, Yoga is about building a connection between your mind and body and I often find that a calmer mind tends to lead to a healthier body. It's about understanding that connection. My classes are also diverse and I love that I can attract such a wide range of ability into one space, for example, I can have a professional athlete sat next to a person who has just come out of surgery and there is something for the both of them. So my message is simple: Come to our Yoga studio, at1.SPACE, and let us show you the benefits of Yoga and share our love for it. I look forward to meeting you all very soon, sending you all love.
