This is the meaning of ‘Ezz(y)’ in Arabic. It also has a special meaning to us.. its the name of our son Ezzaldeen.
When our son was born, we found it hard to find a place where we could continue working on our physical and mental health while having a baby to take care of but we would like to do things differently.
Physiotherapist, Yoga teacher Yasmae Omar (NL/ENG) When I was at a young age, I always wondered why I had injuries all the time and my friends didn’t. We all were practicing figure skating for at least 15 hours on the ice, 5 hours of ballet and 5 hours of condition training per week so, why me? And what do people mean by be yourself when I was getting ready for a competition? Why am I so anxious about competing on the ice? All these questions formed the base of the knowledge I now teach. As a physio I am specialized in chronic pain, mostly the lower back region and pelvic pain. After graduating at the university of Rotterdam of applied sciences in 2013 I studied yoga in India and China to truly understand the spiritual and physical side of ourselves, how it works and influences each other. After 6 years gaining experience working with different kinds of health care specialists, in different parts of the world (Qatar) and different injuries, I find a way to connect hands-on physical care to your day to day life. This aspect, to make you independent, is the true goal of my therapy.
