Bassam has lived in five different countries and has worn several professional hats: software engineer, professional climber, yoga teacher, and acrobatic performer. He has finally settled down in Manhattan as a Vinyasa Yoga, AcroYoga, Aerial Yoga, and Thai bodywork teacher. He started his yoga practice in 2009 while he was a professional climber in the Middle East. Like many, his practice started as a physical one, but in time it has become a spiritual path, a lifestyle, and a career. Bassam’s classes focus on transitions & balance structure with improv, strength with flexibility, and breath with body. He is extremely passionate about sharing his knowledge.

”Perhaps my favorite class was with Faramarz, founder of Om Factory. Funny enough, I was there on my birthday and he's a hoot. He challenges his students while being encouraging.”
