Fatimata Sanogo is a yoga alliance certified holistic vinyasa flow teacher, a doctoral student in epidemiology at Keck School of Medicine of the University of the Southern California (USC) and the founder and CEO of SAGE Project.
She was born and raised in Burkina Faso. As a consequence, she grew up speaking French as her first language and Fulani. She has been practicing yoga and meditation since 2010, on the first day she moved to the United States. As her practice deepens and expands she embraced the path of teaching as the next level of her learning. Teaching yoga for her is a form of learning and the vehicle through which she enables the timeless eternal qualities of health, well-being, joy and love to flow through her and come into time positively affecting her students and activating the same qualities within them. The growth is always mutual.
Students of all levels are welcome. She teaches a holistic vinyasa flow: a combination of power yoga, pranayama (breath work) and mindfulness. She guides you in your practice to find your own inner teacher, to use your body as an instrument and your breath as a tool to move through the asanas and develop flexibility, strength, balance of your body and mind. The balance of your mind is what is also called equanimity. This is an aspect of yoga practice that positively affects your everyday life!
Fatimata enjoys her daily Vipassana meditation practice. She’s completed a 10-day silent Vipassana meditation course, a silent meditation retreat and several meditation classes at Agape University led by Michael Bernard Beckwith. She’s driven by her passion for self-development and her commitment to promoting health, joy, education, empowerment, and to being a beneficial presence on the planet.
