Kenza Benabdelouahad

I am Kenza, a certified yoga teacher E-RYT 200 and YACEP by Yoga International, trained by the One Yoga school in Thailand. My passion for yoga stems from my deep belief in its benefits for harmonizing the mind and body, as well as for renewing the body's energy.

Teaching yoga goes far beyond mere poses. It is an invitation to explore the depth of our being, to find alignment between body, mind, and soul. This ancient practice offers a space to center oneself, to regenerate, and to cultivate lasting inner peace.

Alongside my commitment to yoga, I am also a belly dance teacher, specializing in the Charki and Baladi styles. I firmly believe that these two practices, though different, complement each other harmoniously. Dance provides a sense of peace, joy, and lightness, while also strengthening the connection to the body through deep work on self-acceptance and proprioception.

As the creator of the Scent By Hope brand, I merge my passions for yoga, dance, and aromatherapy. My scented vegetable candles, home fragrances, and line mists are designed to nurture holistic well-being. Inspired by the practice of yoga, my creations use natural waxes and essential oils to promote harmony of the body and mind.

Through my teaching, my creations, and my commitment to well-being, I strive to share with others the profound benefits of yoga, oriental dance, and aromatherapy. My mission is to inspire and guide those who seek balance and serenity in their daily lives.
