Saturday, July 28, 2018, 10:30 am - 11:15 am

Saeeda Hafiz is a native of Pittsburgh, PA, and a graduate of Temple University. A yoga teacher and wellness expert who focuses on teaching physical and mental wellness to diverse groups, Hafiz has studied at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center and the Natural Gourmet Institute. She lives and teaches in San Francisco.

In The Healing she gives a frank account of the anxiety and rewards of becoming “middle class” through a complete change of diet and adopting habits such as traveling and doing yoga. While her peers pursue one kind of American dream by climbing the corporate ladder, Hafiz finds meaning in learning to cook macrobiotic food and practicing yoga and meditation. By doing so, she recovers from chronic health conditions and heals from the family trauma she has inherited.

All demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the white tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
