Sayeeda's Journey - Struggle to Fit in as a Child, Love for Music, Traveling & Teaching Yoga with Chronic Illness

Welcome to another episode of the Journey Podcast!

In today’s episode, I’m having a conversation with Sayeeda Alam, a Yoga Teacher and Ayurvedic Lifestyle Advisor.

I met Sayeeda on an Ayurvedic Lifestyle Advisor training course last year. We got chatting during lunch and I was really inspired by her journey. I knew straight away that she would be an amazing guest for my podcast so I am super excited to share this episode with you!

In this episode, she shares her struggles to fit in growing up, her love for music, traveling after University, her addiction and diagnosis of ME, and finally discovering Yoga & Ayurveda. Her story is truly inspiring and I hope you enjoy our conversation!

Highlights of the episode:

  • Challenging childhood
  • Passion for music
  • Traveling the world after university
  • Feeling disconnected from her body
  • Her first yoga experience
  • Becoming a Yoga teacher
  • Building Yoga business with chronic illness
  • Combining Ayurveda with Yoga offerings
  • Letting go & learning how to take risks

Sayeeda’s bio:

Sayeeda embodies dedication as a yoga student, teacher, and Ayurvedic lifestyle advisor and her passion lies in fostering holistic well-being and spiritual balance.

Having navigated cycles of addictive behaviour, depression, anxiety, and chronic illness for much of her life, discovering Yoga & Ayurveda became the foundation of her ability to find inner peace & physical healing.

Motivated by her personal transformation journey, she embarked on the path of becoming a yoga teacher & Ayurvedic lifestyle advisor, driven by a deep desire to guide others on their unique paths toward personal and spiritual growth.

Her teaching style seamlessly blends ancient yogic wisdom with contemporary insights, guiding students to explore their bodies and minds through posture, pranayama, philosophy, and meditation. Sayeeda embraces the dynamic nature of each student’s journey and recognises that their needs evolve, so she offers a diverse range of yoga styles to cater to this fluidity.

Understanding that each practitioner seeks something unique on the mat, she aims to create a space where individuals can explore and find resonance in various practices. As an Ayurvedic lifestyle advisor, Sayeeda uses the wisdom of this ancient healing system to offer individually tailored guidance to enhance well-being and foster vitality.

She works closely with individuals to assess their unique constitution and imbalances and offers practical guidance on daily routines, nutrition, stress management, and how to use herbs & spices to help restore harmony and balance in both body and mind. She deeply believes in Yoga and Ayurveda’s transformative potential to instill equilibrium and well-being across every facet of life.
