Co-founder and managing partner of Zen Yoga, one of Dubai’s most successful yoga studios, Zein is has fused her fascination with the practice and her experience in business to create the perfect career for herself. “My fascination with yoga started 10 years ago when I was introduced to its various benefits. Then the opportunity came along to become a partner at Zen Yoga four years ago and it was an absolute dream come true for me.”

Having spent 32 years in the UAE, Zein has seen the country in its infancy and admits she’s surprised by its transformation. “One moment we’re using camels as modes of transportation, the next we’re hosting F1!”

Her biggest slice of zen is: “Explore and experience as much as possible, without looking back or taking anything too seriously. When the world seems like it’s going to end, have faith and don’t focus on petty issues. Follow your gut and be thankful for every day.”
