Hi there, I’m Bahar; a dedicated Mindfulness Teacher and Founder of Mindfulness UAE.
I’m a passionate believer that anyone can create a meaningful, purpose-driven life for themselves with the right tools and guidance; no matter how hard life may seem.
How do I know? Because I’ve been there.
I know how it feels to struggle with moments of overwhelming anxiety and stress and to not know how to handle my emotions.
Like many people, I was carrying my stress and anxiety for years, thinking that it was normal and that caused chronic pain. It was only until I left my 14 year professional career and embarked on a journey of self-discovery that I really got to the core of my struggles. It was on this journey, I found Mindfulness.
The tools and techniques I learnt were transformative and not only helped me find my way, but also helped me find myself. I became more self-aware, understood my emotional triggers and learnt how to process my thoughts in a much kinder, non-judgmental way.
My personal healing experience, as well as my extensive training in Mindfulness, has allowed me to develop programs, workshops, retreats and speaking events to help others just like me, improve their mental wellbeing. With my techniques, I believe anyone can become a happier and healthier and a better version of themselves.
I spent years studying MBSR (Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction) at the university of San Diego, MBCT (Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy) at Oxford university.
I had the honor of attending workshops with Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, Gabrielle Bernstein and Dr. Michael Beckwith at Mind Valley Academy.
