Farida was first introduced to yoga as a young teenager.  Asana and meditation became an essential component of her daily practice, which later led her to the deeper studies of yoga and Eastern philosophy. In 2001, Farida studied in Los Angeles with Bikram Choudhury and returned to Houston to teach full-time. Since her initial teacher training, she has completed 1000+ hours of yoga training enabling her to teach Hatha, Vinyasa and Kids yoga in addition to the Bishnu Gosh lineage. Yoga allows her to peel away layers of the self, create space within the body & mind, and ultimately, drop the center of consciousness from the mind into the heart.
