Koru Teacher Amal Fayad

What is your area of work or academic field of study?

I am a licensed Associate Counselor working at the ASU counseling center. I completed my Bachelors in Nutrition and my Masters in Counseling.

What drew you to Koru Mindfulness?

I was asked to attend Koru by my manager at work, and I immediately felt excitement and was ready to begin the journey to a more mindful lifestyle. I was missing the ability to focus during my daily prayers and often prayed while my mind made plans, and thought about everything else except the present moment and my prayer.

I also love the ease and simplicity of teaching the course with the user friendly dashboard and app.

Where do you hope to teach Koru Mindfulness classes?

I would love to begin teaching Koru at ASU with a focus on freshman and first year grad students to help give them a healthier start in their academic life.

I am also very involved within the Muslim community at the local mosque in Arizona. Once I completed the Koru training I started two separate classes that very next week at the mosque. I was so excited and could not wait to share my experience with others and currently have 24 students reaping the benefits of Koru!
