SARAH TRAD

SARAH is a global nomad, and a psychologist. In 2003 she founded Skoun, an NGO for the treatment and prevention of drug addiction in Lebanon. She then ventured in business, living in Paris and New York. She kept a regular yoga practice wherever she lived. It was only a matter of time after she had relocated to Beirut that she found the need for a space such as YOGA SOUK to exist. Her entrepreneurial spirit and contagious good vibe are the driving force behind the brand.
