Our Teachers

Meet the Beyond Yoga teachers! While we all have our own individual teaching flavour, our passion for movement unites us. Each of us has studied anatomy, movement and yoga extensively and we look forward to guiding you through an embodied and nourishing practice.

Keen to work with us one-on-one? All of our teachers offer private sessions, where we can offer movement assessments and a tailor-made class to suit your individual needs. Private sessions can be book here.
