Originally from Iran, Shima was brought up in Austria. Living in different cultures has always been her main source of inspiration. During her stay in Hanoi, where she worked on international development issues, she first discovered Hatha Yoga. She was instantly hooked by the sensation of spaciousness and homecoming that Yoga triggered in her. Ever since Yoga has been a constant practice in her life – on and off the mat.
Holding a Master degree in Business Administration from the Vienna University of Business and Economics Shima spent many years studying and working abroad. Since 2011, Shima has dedicated herself to teaching Yoga and now counts more than 600 hours of training in Ashtanga Vinyasa, Hatha and Yin Yoga. She is also a certified Thai Nuad bodyworker and teacher, which for her is a form of meditation in movement and a part of her Yoga practice.
She is grateful to the many inspirational teachers that she has met on her path. Her main teachers include Richard Freeman, Paul Dallaghan, and Romana and Sascha Delberg. On a daily basis, her most important teachers remain her students without whom she could not have progressed in her understanding of Yoga and its various effects on life.
In her work as a Yoga teacher and body worker, Shima dedicates herself to the development and preservation of healthy and balanced bodies, clear and focused minds, elevated spirits and overall wellbeing. Her intention is to create a safe and inspiring space for your practice and to take you on a journey through your own body and mind.
In her teachings, Shima emphasizes conscious breathing, solid grounding with an eye for detail and a focus on internal alignment.
Shima is based in Vienna and offers classes in German and English.
