Jou Jou Alfardan, Business Partner / Teacher

agni yoga studio hollywood Joujou has been crushing on yoga ever since she was a young teenager. Although she did not grow up in a yoga environment whatsoever (her home town had no yoga studios until around 2012) she felt very connected to it. She started practicing a little here and there but was never consistent until she met Ashley Cummings at her Self.Love.Asana workshop in London in 2013. Thats when love struck. She automatically jumped at the rare opportunity to train with Ashley privately, and her life has taken a magical turn ever since. Since her first teacher training, Joujou has studied with various teachers of all styles of yoga- traditional and modern, and completed an advanced teacher training in Bali that focused on Tantra. The combination of Joujou's soothing voice plus her love for movement arts and challenges will ensure a great balanced class.

Joujou currently lives in Doha (Qatar) and is Ashley's business partner and soul sister.
