Aisha Shabazz

Aisha was first introduced to yoga as a physical practice in 2009, when she and her roommate decided to try yoga as a means to crosstrain. As a trained high school athlete and leisure endurance runner, yoga seemed like a piece of cake. Not quite– after one class she decided it wasn’t for her.Aisha

During the Summer of 2013, Aisha was reintroduced to yoga after being encouraged by a graduate school classmate. “Yoga changed my life,” her classmate said. Aisha was not convinced but decided to give yoga one more try. Since that Summer, Aisha has been a strong advocate for Yoga’s physical and emotional transformational possibilities.

Aisha completed the Wake Up Yoga Foundation Teacher Training in 2018 as a means to not only share her passion for Yoga but with the hope to help all people access their body in a way that increases their physical and emotional well-being.

Aisha currently teaches Gentle Flow at Wake Up Yoga South and when teaching Yoga, Aisha holds the value of seeing the individual first, remaining in the present moment, and cultivating a space for safe exploration.
