Biography

I am the Founder of YOGA FUSION – HEALS over HEAD – a project that supports individuals in contexts of war, natural disaster and structural violence to mitigate stress and trauma. This project is everything I am: an economist, a conflict and reconstruction specialist, a yoga teacher, and … a dreamer.

I am an economist and conflict and reconstruction specialist with a passion for the concept of common good and its role in seeking alternatives to current economic concept and policy making patterns.

I am a yoga teacher who learnt from her own healing experience the meaning of empathy and that by learning yoga at first without a yoga teacher started to explore whether yoga should support human security and resilience through well-being looking at the relationship between individual wellbeing and social justice.

I am also the Head of the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) Programme in Bangladesh: a program that advocates for volunteerism and social cohesion as common good creating social justice starting from individual choices.
