About Kozhikode

Also known as Calicut, Kozhikode is a legendary seaport where Arab, Chinese and East African traders once converged. During Classical Antiquity and Middle Ages, Kozhikode was dubbed the city of spices for its role as the major trading point of Indian spices. It was once a famous cotton-weaving center  and is remembered as the place of origin of the Calico cloth to which it gave its name ‘Calicut‘. Lush green countryside, serene beaches, historic sites, wildlife sanctuaries, rivers and hills make Kozhikode a popular destination.

India was the start to her Yoga journey with training as a Yoga instructor, Ayurvedic massage and Panchakarma therapist. Amany later perfected Bikram Yoga under Gabrielle Raiz-Scanlon in Australia, travelling to Costa Rica where she completed her Hot Yoga Doctor training. It was in Dubai that she was introduced to an inspiring mentor, Cyntha Gonzalez who further re-directed her life course to become a counselor with studies in Trans-personal Healing and Art Therapy . As a Reiki master, trans-personal healer, Yoga instructor and Healing through nutrition facilitator, Amany brings a wealth of healing wisdom to her community locally and via her workshops and retreats worldwide.

Amal began her career as a website developer after graduating from King Saud University in Computer Science. After the birth of her first child Amal went into child education, setting up in-home day care centres where she learned the foundations of creating a safe, loving and enriching learning environment for children. Three years later she received her Montessori Diploma, setting up Jeddah’s renowned Apple Tree Montessori School that successfully provided children with a positive education until 2015.

Since 2010 Amal has been deepening her studies in the holistic healing arts. From an art therapy workshop with Abyah Al-Dabbagh, she then trained under globally renowned therapist Cyntha Gonzalez in Transpersonal Healing, Art Therapy and Grieving Odyssey. Her life’s mission has evolved and now as a professional Counselor and art therapist, she runs a successful healing practice with her sister in Jeddah.
