The Story

Hello, this is Maysun Hassanaly!

I am a Yoga teacher and an Engineer, originally from Madagascar and based in London for the past 14 years. 

I grew up in a very rich cultural environment, being of Indian descent, Malagasy-born and French. I remember being surrounded with beautiful handmade crafts made of organic fibers and reycled material and always wished Malagasy art and craftsmanship would be more widely known to the rest of the world. 

At the end of 2019, I took a career break and while in Madagascar, I practised yoga with my favourite teacher on Malagasy handwoven mats (tsihy).

I loved the feeling of being grounded and connected to nature and wanted to share this feeling with the world. I also realised that most of my yoga gear was made of PVC and toxic materials, and it was really difficult to find eco-friendly yoga gear with a nice design and ethical values.

I knew there needed a better way for the yoga world.

A couple of months later, I trained as a yoga teacher in India and upon coming back to London, Ladina was born. 

With your help, we are now supporting African artists and supporting reforestation in Madagascar, the 4th most deforested country in the world.
