Hala Khouri, M.A., has been teaching the movement arts for sixteen years. Her roots are in Ashtanga, Iyengar and Anusara yoga, dance, Capoeira, Somatic Psychology and the juicy mystery of Life itself. Creative movement and honest self-exploration has always been a source of tremendous healing for Hala, and her calling to pass this on to others has been clear to her since she began teaching at the age of 16.
Hala earned her B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Religion from Columbia University and has a Master's degree Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. She wrote her thesis on using yoga and other complementary disciplines such as eco-psychology and somatics for self-empowerment to inspire a global shift towards peaceful and sustainable living.
She trains yoga teachers to work with at-risk youth, and has started programs in local community centers and juvenile halls. She is currently working toward a Doctorate in Somatic Psychology at Santa Barbara Graduate institute.
She is also a graduate of the IM School of Healing Arts in New York City where she studied with Levent Bulokbasi the subtle art of energetic healing. She trained to teach yoga at YogaWorks in Santa Monica, CA.
Hala has taught yoga and the movement arts to a wide variety of people ranging from schizophrenics and at-risk youth to mommies and rock stars. Teaching is her absolute favorite thing to do! She currently lives in Venice, California.
