Raised by two parents who are spiritual teachers, Maryam Hasnaa has been immersed in the realms of mysticism, ceremony and celebration since before she was born. An initiated Shamanic Priestess, she has found her calling teaching others how to embody their higher dimensional selves and awaken their soul’s purpose. Born a clairsentient, Hasnaa uses her etheric abilities to remind people of the vibrational, energetic nature of this universe. The key elements that differentiate her work from others include the depth of knowledge and experience within a diverse range of esoteric spiritual traditions, cosmic cosmology and energetic wellness practices. She is experienced in plant medicine, metaphysics, universal law, spirit communication, divination, ceremony, ritual, meditation and a keeper of sacred medicine. She specializes in helping people understand what it means to be a fully awakened being having a human experience. Hasnaa incorporates ancient knowledge as well as cutting edge information to intuitively teach in a way that will help people step into their full power and create deep transformational healing.
As a seeker and innate healer, Yeradmi learned at a young age the art of defying cultural norms around trauma. She began seeking ways to experience the meaning of self-acceptance. During this process it became very clear the lack of support and safe spaces available to decompress in her community. Yeradmi deepened her self-exploration while studying abroad in Thailand and visiting Costa Rica during her final years of undergrad. This was her first time immersing in different cultures with different sets of cultural norms. Soon after, she was introduced to yoga and meditation, allowing her to reconnect with herself in the most powerful way yet. Learning these practices was transformational and redirected her attention to the power of healing. Yeradmi decided to share these tools and create her own style of teaching around what she felt was missing.
In 2012, Yeradmi founded Santiago Guest House, a retreat space in Dominican Republic where she hosts and leads experiences that facilitate rejuvenation and community. She left her corporate job to enroll in her first 200-hour yoga teacher training. Since then, Yeradmi has completed hundreds of hours of training where she’s closely studied the power of touch and meditation. During her studies she became a Traditional Usui Reiki practitioner and is currently in a Mastership program. In 2015, she began studying and is now teaching the GYROTONIC® method, which is a unique, holistic approach to movement. Yeradmi combined all three modalities to create the essence of her work; meditation, movement and touch.
Yeradmi currently teaches adults, teens, and children – including ones with disabilities. Her mission is to hold space for connection, as it is essential for one’s peace and optimal health. Yeradmi believes by learning to nurture ourselves, our bodies and minds thrive, giving us the ability to best serve those around us.
