7 years in Hamburg
Hi Zahra! How did you discover yoga?
I discovered yoga as a teenager but stopped following that path for a while. My uncle was practicing all kinds of different asanas and I thought he was a freak. My father is Yogi by birth, he is calm and peaceful by nature. When my first child was born, I started with meditation, which helps me not to take everything too seriously.
What are some surprising things you’ve tried in your life?
I have tried a lot of different jobs, I studied political science, Islamic science, then I started studying drama. Played on stage at venues like the Hamburger Kammerspiele, Brotfabrik Berlin… One of my last jobs was working in prison helping people express their emotions on stage. I was working for some public relations agencies – happy I did it but would not do it again.
What is the bravest thing you’ve done?
I was born – brave enough 😉
