Azize Sahin, who believes that life is a journey to build human beings from her own being, went to retreat in the Himalayan region of India to find answers to her questions at the age of 30. With the inspiration from there, she has decided to teach yoga and mindfulness as a professional. From 2009 to 2015, she continued to take classes from valuable instructors on yoga, body-oriented therapies and mindfulness. During this time she taught yoga and mindfulness simultaneously.

In 2015, she started her master’s degree in Applied Psychology at Uskudar University. Here, she had the chance to follow Prof.Sinan Canan’s Neuroscience classes and designed new trainings by integrating scientific knowledge into the mindfulness practices she taught. The combination of the ancient wisdom-based practices of the East, which she taught for years, with the analytical point of view of the West, made a difference both in her own practices and in her trainings.


She currently teaches stress and emotion management with mindfulness and yoga to adults, children, institutions and schools in OpenMindfulness Ltd.

In April 2019, her  book on Neuroscience based Mindfulness Exercises for Children was published with Sinan Canan.
