Welcome to my yoga journey

Hi everyone, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am Shakira, I teach yoga passionately. I live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, a country with the best food available almost 24/7. I am old enough to know better, young enough to still knowingly make mistakes.

I first found yoga in 2015. Growing up being physically active in martial arts and running, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that my body was significantly challenged physically from a session of yoga. I started going for yoga practice every day, until about a year later a friend made a passing remark that I should learn how to teach. That started it for me. I did my first yoga teacher training course in 2016 and started teaching immediately then. In 2018, I embarked on a eat.pray.love journey to Rishikesh, the yoga capital of the world and did my second yoga teacher training course. I would like to believe that the weeks I spent in India literally changed my life and has deepened my knowledge of yoga to another level.

Starting this website is a way for me to share my journey as a self- practitioner, teacher, and as an observer and a participant of this vast world of yoga universe we share.

I hope you will follow me on my journey, and let's be kind to one another.
