Abdulvahid grew up in a small village town in middle Anatolia- Turkey. As he was introduced to martial arts and sports before he could even speak, Vahid found himself engaging most of his time and energy in understanding and controlling his body.
Born into deep mystic world of sufism, he sees many parallels between the Sufi whirling and yoga asana, both moving meditations designed to allow the practitioner to transcend beyond the physical body.
He expresses that spiritual growth through Sufi teachings goes hand in hand with Yogic Philosophy. He is enrolled in Maryland University of Integrative Health doing a masters degree in Yoga Therapy.
