Nazaahah A. Amin
I am a certified yoga therapist and advanced yoga teacher with over 13 years of experience facilitating private and group yoga therapy sessions in the Baltimore area. In 2019, I received a Master of Science in Yoga Therapy at Maryland University of Integrative Health. I completed my 200 and 500 hour yoga teacher training programs through yama yoga collective. I was a Baltimore City elementary school teacher for over a decade and when I left the classroom, I continued my passion for working with the youth by teaching yoga at public and private school programs throughout Maryland and Washington, DC.
I began my yoga teaching journey in 2011, with my signature workshop series, Sistas Yoga Series. In 2013, I founded Ama Wellness, a yoga therapy practice for African American women and girls. In 2017, I co-founded Bmore Empowered, a non-profit that provides mindfulness and entrepreneurship programming for Black girls. I currently lead group yoga therapy workshops for parents in Baltimore City Public Schools as well as private and group sessions at my studio in West Baltimore.
When I’m not teaching or mixing up essential oil blends for my aromatherapy company Ama Scents, you can find my nose buried in a book, going on adventures with my teenage son, or sharing tea with my sista-friends.
I’m a mama, daughter, sister, friend and proud Black Nerd with a deeply rooted love for community building and a belief in the magical power of sisterhood. This belief ignites my mission to empower & heal Black women through yoga, self-care and sistahood. This mission has allowed me to lead hundreds of students and clients at mostly women-owned wellness spaces throughout Baltimore and Washington, DC. My passion for empowering women has also led me to teach and speak at national conferences, spiritual retreats and wellness events throughout the U.S.
