“Yoga is a powerful vehicle for creating a fairer and more equal world and, women and children are vital ambassadors for this change. This is why I am grateful to support Yoga Gives Back and join in their mission to collectively demand positive social change to have a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive world for everyone.” 

Michelle El Khoury, PhD was personally drawn to yoga whilst pregnant with her second child and noticed the positive mental and physical effects it had, not only on herself but later on with her children. Her journeys led her to become a certified yoga teacher and after a rewarding 20-year published career in the healthcare industry, she followed her dream and incorporated her background and learnings into the passion she had for yoga and founded Yogamazia.

Yogamazia serves as a sanctuary specifically for expectant persons to embrace their feminine energies and for children to realize their inherent peace through the practice of yoga and their values of G.R.A.C.E. – gratitude, respect, authenticity, community and equity.  

Michelle aspires for children and families to understand the entire experience of yoga, not just through the postures which many believe are its basis; but also on its moral and social aspects combined, all while having fun!
