Hala Khouri

Hala Khouri, M.A., E-RYT, has been teaching the movement arts for over 20 years. Her roots are in Ashtanga and Iyengar yoga, dance, somatic psychology, and the juicy mystery of life itself. Creative movement and honest self-exploration have always been a source of tremendous healing for Hala, and her calling to share this with others has been clear to her since she began teaching at the age of 16. Hala earned her B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Religion from Columbia University and has a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. She wrote her thesis on using yoga and other complementary disciplines, such as eco-psychology and somatics for self-empowerment, to inspire a global shift towards peaceful and sustainable living. Hala is also one of the creators of Off the Mat, Into the World, along with Seane Corn and Suzanne Sterling, a yoga and activism initiative that aims to get yogis to take their practice outside of the yoga studio and to touch the lives of others. Hala has taught yoga and the movement arts to a wide variety of people ranging from schizophrenics and at-risk youth to mommies and rock stars. Teaching is her absolutely favorite thing to do! She currently lives in Venice, CA with her husband Paul and their two sons. To learn more about Hala, please visit her website at www.halakhouri.com.
