Spirited global nomad with African roots, Chocolako has more than 1,000+ hours of accredited yoga teacher training. Her path has led her to explore and weave artistic expression through non-linear somatic movement, embodied meditation, and hatha postures. As a result, her sister circles, yoga classes, dance and womb wellness practices across Africa have helped people express freely and feel their way toward an awakened path. This Atlanta native’s contagious spark invites us all to “feel it, then heal it”.
As one student puts it,“… you feel her before you see her. She’s vibrant, colorful and fun, with an infectious smile that calls forth her ancestors. Her soul stirring reminders weave effortlessly and leave an imprint that is delightful to experience over and over again.”
As a kid I was born in Beirut, I then studied in Lebanon and Switzerland. After 20 years working in the environment protection and development field (travelling to most Arab countries and some African countries), In 2012, I started welcoming yoga friends in my farm in the Ourika valley (30 km away from Marrakesh). It was the beginning of Bab Zouina a center dedicated to yoga retreats. Morocco is my second homeland. I love this country, its people, its nature, its food, its culture, its traditions. It will be my pleasure to share Moroccan beauty and values with you.
