Meet the instructorS
Bryony Giboin – Bryony’s spiritual journey began when she packed her bags and took to traveling the world in her early 20’s knowing there had to be more in life than working like she had been socially conditioned to do. She commenced to letting herself learn from nature, different religions and civilisations, strangers, and her spiritual teachers. It was at this time when she had been suffering from illness and depression, she took back her power and healed herself through the teachings of yoga and more profoundly meditation.
Bryony has been working with the body for as long as she could walk having trained as a professional dancer, worked as an international celebrity fitness trainer and she is also a certified holistic life coach. It is upon the background that she has developed and is known for her strong dynamic yoga asana classes, that challenge and establish both mental and physical strength. Her classes are sweaty, fun, and rich in tradition. She is known for her continuous studies and knowledge of Yoga History and Philosophy and her passion for the philosophy of yoga is integrated into her classes as she feels the power of yoga moves beyond just the asana.
Bryony is soon to have over 1500 hours of yoga teacher training certification and she deeply believes that yoga can enhance and radically transform the lives of all those who choose to walk this path.
What you can expect to learn from Byrony;
Yoga asana, teaching technique, philosophy, history of yoga, meditation, pranayama & ethics of yoga.
Jade Pleming – Originally from Austin, Texas – Jade has lived all over the world. A lover of travel, food, and yoga – in no particular order – she spends her time making friends, planning her next travels, and expanding her yoga practice. She has attended yoga training in Morocco, India, and the USA, which has helped her to develop a unique teaching style with an emphasis on fun, self-love, body positivity, and curiosity.
Jade found yoga at the age of 18, where she enrolled in her first Hatha Yoga class at her university. She took the class because someone told her it would be “easy”, and she felt that it was – until the next day when her entire body felt sore and shook all over. It was at that moment that Jade realized the long-term physical effects that yoga could have, and that started the long process of her also unveiling an ancient practice that has become a huge part of her daily physical practice but also spiritually and mentally as well.
In her teachings, Jade stresses the importance of “yoking” the breath and movement and building shapes from the ground up. She is a self-proclaimed anatomy nerd and loves diving into posture alignment and finding suitable posture modifications for every body type. Aside from teaching public studio classes in Austin, Jade hosts an average of 4 retreats per year, as well as workshops and 200-hour yoga teacher training. She finds peace through yoga, as well as discipline, which she says is necessary for a stable life (no matter how much it interferes with her strong desire to be totally carefree).
