Our teachers...

Jess has been teaching Yin for 10 years under the direction of Bernie Clarke. Furthering her studies in yogic philosophy, massage, ayurveda and bhuddist studies, Jess has taken the essence of these teachings and developed a style of yin teaching designed to shift and challenge the practitioner to deepen their experience of yoga. Through her numerous workshops and immersions, she has ascertained a diverse and extensive portfolio of Yin knowledge and now dedicates much of her practice and trainings towards a Yin style that facilitates transformation and deep healing. 

Mariza has been teaching teachers for 7 years now and finds her greatest joy seeing others acquire the skills to go and sprinkle yoga love around the world.  For Mariza, the essential life elements of inspiration and motivation lie in pushing limits, learning new skills and bringing people together to further their own journeys of self discovery...This offering is new, exciting and also challenging and Mariza cannot wait to get started.
