Nadeen al-Jijakli

Originally from NYC, Nadeen came to yoga 15 years ago when a coworker gave her a prenatal yoga DVD. She completed her trauma-informed 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2022 at Abide Yoga Studio in Cleveland and became certified in Children’s Yoga through Yo Re Mi based in New York. She is a Reiki (Level II) practitioner and holds a certificate in Positive Psychology. Nadeen also works with ZENworks to bring yoga and mindfulness to underserved schools in Cleveland.

Nadeen’s classes offer gentle, strengthening, creative and mindful movements. She incorporates meditation, traditional yoga poses, restorative practices, and uplifting music and sounds for a restful and healing experience.

Nadeen has worked with families facing trauma and separation as an immigration attorney for nearly two decades. She is a mother of four (plus a sweet dog and 2 cats), Zumba lover, and she plays some guitar. She especially enjoys integrating wellness and self-care regimens for women as well as community care for each other.
