With her diploma and certificate in hand, Leyla flew to Ethiopia. She has traveled a lot and had various journeys through Africa before settling in Jinja, Uganda. She became qualified as a yoga teacher in 2008 with Africa Yoga and has been teaching extensively over the world since then. Initially drawn to the dynamic nature of Ashtanga and its power and moving meditation qualities, she has now softened herself and prefers to teach Vinyasa Flow.
Deidre is a certified yoga teacher specialized in Vinyasa Flow and Kundalini yoga. She first started practicing yoga in 2000, after she sustained a knee injury. She quickly realized that yoga was much more than a physical practice and she took her first yoga teacher training with Yoga Tree in 2008. Deidre has taught Kundalini and Bhakti yoga in Uganda, Jackson Hole, and San Francisco. Her students are encouraged to flow from the heart space. Yoga has been becoming a path of truth for her, a way to heal old traumas and become more conscious in her life.
Payal is a biotechnologist turned yoga teacher. Since she was a child, she found herself very curious about the mind, body, and soul connection. Until the age of 23, Payal had a regular yoga practice as a part of her culture, not paying much attention to it. At the age of 24, due to a major shift in her life, she left her job in one of the most competitive environments in the world and took a break. This is when she re-discovered her enthusiasm for yoga. She dedicated the next year deepening her own practice with several teachers in India, and in 2014, she became a full-time yoga teacher.
