I have always been curious about life in general. The hunger of learning new things led me to get education in different subjects. Learning and understanding most things were easy but it took me years to internalize some of them through experiences. Even though some things had an important effect on my evolution, others were just not for me.
Sharing my knowledge, experiences, observations and thoughts have always been as important as my passion to learn. I do those through instructing yoga, consulting astrology, teaching English and publishing books.
I was introduced to yoga due to an illness that I was diagnosed with at the time. My doctor had advised me to start yoga in order to strengthen my muscles and calm myself down. As time moved on, yoga did not only strengthen my muscles but also gave me courage to change myself and my life. After internalizing the yoga philosophy and the life style, I started to feel much better and that gave me the passion to learn more about yoga and share it with other people to help them heal themselves as I did.
After years of unsteady practice, I got my first Yoga Teacher Certificate in 2014 (200 hours International Yoga Federation Teacher Training). Then I started instructing yoga voluntarily to my family and friends. As time passed, I started having various number of students from different ages and backgrounds. My student portfolio expanded by only word-of-mouth and references showing an indication on my yoga skills and abilities as a yoga instructor.
I got Basic Ayurveda education in 2016 and then improved my knowledge in Ayurveda by getting a 150hr training during 2017 and 2018. In 2017, I also received my certifications on “Pre & Post Natal Yoga” and “Yoga for Kids” Teacher Trainings. In order to improve and develop myself further, I continue attending different yoga, breathing and meditation trainings both online and in person. There is so much to learn from everyone. To be beneficial to others, I continue instructing yoga to people from different countries both face-to-face and online.
I have always had an interest in astrology too. Since I was a kid, I have been reading a lot of books about astrology and in 2018, I decided to get a professional training. After getting certificated the following year, I started to consult astrology too. Even though many people see it as a way for fortune telling, I use astrology to increase our awareness and acceptance to ourselves and our lives.
In 2018, I also got TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate and started to teach English both online and face-to-face. In 2021, I and my dear friend, Özer Kiraz, published a workbook – Çocuklar için İngilizce Aktiviteler – for Turkish kids to practice their English skills.
I self-published my first novella, 31 Bubble Dates / 31 Citas de Bubble, in March 2023 on Amazon KDP. It is a bilingual story (English - Spanish) that I combine my experiences, observations and thoughts with my imagination. It was created to help foreign language learners with level upper intermediate (B2) and above to practice their reading and vocabulary skills.
I also have a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration (Bilkent University) and Master's degree in Journalism (Ankara University). I do my best to combine all of my knowledge and experience to help people lead a healthier life through increasing their awareness and acceptance towards themselves and their lives.
