Hassan was born in London, with Turkish Cypriot roots, and comes from a social services background – working with children in London in youth justice and children with additional needs. This work was very rewarding but also highlighted the importance for self-care. Hassan’s yoga adventure began in the gym, practicing hatha yoga, for a good stretch to escape the stress from working a challenging job. After 6 months of practice, Hassan felt some profound changes in his life. Becoming a yoga teacher was a natural progression and a heartfelt decision for Hassan – he is grateful to be able to teach one of his great passions in life. Hassan teaches Detox, Elementals and Yin and when not teaching or practicing yoga he is either hanging out with Obree, teaching yoga retreats or talking to his houseplants.
