Hamna shida is a Swahili phrase meaning "no problem.” In Tanzania, a place where the value of human connection outweighs that of wealth and status, hamna shida represents the absence of time allowing us to come into the present, connect, and be in a space of gratitude.  

The yoga I teach is that essence: fostering presence, love, compassion, community, and connection to ourselves, our bodies, our earth and our universe. It is a lifestyle, a motto, a reminder, and a path, one that has the potential to transform our reality.
