Meet The Tribe
has been practicing yoga and meditation since 2002-teaching since 2004. A native of Hoboken, New Jersey, she first discovered the practice after moving to Florida and suffering severe anxiety from the death of her mother at the age of 46; her step-father's diagnosis and eventual death from lung cancer at age 54; and surviving 9/11 - all within a six month span. After a year of practicing in Florida, she moved back to New Jersey and began teaching yoga at Rutgers University's recreation center in Newark where she later gave private lessons to the men and women's baseball and basketball teams.
Through her yoga practice Fatima Shani learned how to eat healthier and became a vegetarian in 2004. It is then she decided she wanted to live a holistic life. She began growing her own herbs for use in making her own hair and skin products. She expanded her holistic knowledge with essential oils when her son was born with eczema in 2007 and her daughter was diagnosed with ADHD in 2015. In June of 2018 Fatima finally obtained her 200 RYT training with Lex Gillian at the Institute for Spirituality and Health in Houston, Texas. Fatima Shani holds a bachelors degree in Journalism and Arts Management from Rutgers University- Newark and a graduate certificate in entrepreneurship from NJIT.
