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. Graduating to a more specialised hot yoga practice at BYL’s Canary Wharf studio, Hassan felt 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.
He now helps adults go upside down, twist, back-bend and forward bend – all in the name of health and personal development. Hassan has over 10 years of working experience with people on a personal level and has been teaching in America, Sweden, Norway, Turkey and all around the UK. He also assists on teachers’ trainings, yoga shows and holds his own retreats. Hassan is a personal trainer, Bikram, Ashtanga Vinyasa & Yoga Alliance certified. His sessions are person centred, motivated and compassionate with a focus on technique and a little fun!
