About Aslihan
Her Vision & Misson

Spreading the wisdom of yoga and raising an awareness of total health & well-being in our body, mind & heart are my strongest passion; because yogic living guides me to move consciously in my daily activities and allows me to smile from the deepest corners of my heart in a healthy body. I feel calmer, I think clearer and I focus better. Eventually I find wisdom within and bliss in my everyday activities no matter how big or difficult the daily obstacles are. I’d like to see everyone around me carrying this big smile from their heart and having their own greatest experiences with wisdom and blissful moments, too.

Aslihan's story of starting yoga

Her story about starting yoga is not any different than others'… Long story short, it was because of the exhausting and destructive everyday challenges, dreadfully overwhelming work stress in the field of Marketing, PR & Customer Relations, broken relationships with others and few health problems.

For years, she struggled to keep up and stay motivated with traditional forms of exercises. But only after the unmanageable levels of stress in her professional life and an unbearable deep muscle problem at her back, she finally started to do Yoga with a very inspiring teacher, in Essex area. From the first class she attended, this ancient practice deeply fascinated her. Few months later she decided to go even deeper. She quickly developed a better understanding about Yoga and realised that it is a great “life ring” in our modern, hectic, stressful and busy lives, not just a physical exercise.

Aslihan's story to start doing yoga

" Because of its holistic approach to the human body & mind, yoga gradually helped me to develop a better understanding of myself and a better relationship with the people around me. It also completely changed my perception of Nature and has helped me to grow within. Yoga became very quickly an absolute and the only way of life for me. I benefit from the yogic life style every single day to maintain my health & happiness, to find the physical, mental and emotional flexibility, strength and balance in coping with everyday situations and more over to transform my understanding about myself and others.

Yoga’s ancient philosophy and its practices keep me always on track and allow me to come back to my factory settings whenever I feel imbalanced in my body, mind and heart. It aided and supported my physical, mental and emotional health & wellbeing so much when the modern medicine & pharmacy fell short to offer me a complete preventive wellness as whole. I am so much keen to inspire the people and communities around me to transform their lives into a healthy & happy one.

Let’s spread the love and wisdom of yoga across the universe together ♡

Breathe well, flow well, connect well!

With Peace, Love & Joy​ "
