Halley Wall (Canada) currently lives and teaches in Toronto
I found yoga for the first time in October 2013. I remember it vividly because at the time I was struggling to manage the stress of starting university, and was looking for a way to cope. Little did I know at that point I would end up studying it and making it my full time career. I have now been teaching full time in Toronto Canada since early 2016, at a number of studios in a variety of styles. Many of the styles I teach are variations of traditional forms of yoga (Hatha and Vinyasa), that have been altered to meet the needs of busy city people, while maintaining the fundamental significance of traditional styles by incorporating aspects of pranayama and mindfulness. I am just now embarking on my adventure in leading workshops, retreats and trainings and look forward to seeing where these new endeavours take me. Instagram @Wallspace_yoga / email@example.com

Dana Nicula (Rumania) currently lives and teaches in Singapore
Dana’s first encounter with yoga was in her early teens when she accidentally found and read a book about it. Years later in life she decided to start practicing asana purely to stay healthy and active. In 2015 she completed her 200hr YTT in Thailand trying to deepen her knowledge. Fully aware that yoga is beyond knowledge of the books or various texts, but understanding the role they play in one’s life and their importance, Dana went on practicing and teaching in Singapore for a few more years revealing for herself and others a simple truth: always be prepared to understand the limitations each person has and that not every posture is suitable for all individuals. In September 2018 she embarked on a new journey with Pranaluz, under the guidance of Analu Farina - wonderful teacher and friend and became a 500RYT. Analu and the talented co-teachers Katya Primorskaya and Matahi Lefevre, helped Dana understand herself better and better herself. After the training, Dana took a new approach towards yoga, combining her love for dancing, yoga and meditation into a therapeutic, artful and magical act - all her classes happening in unconventional, always different ways.
Bev Lindley (Australia) currently lives and teaches in Australia
I am a mother and Grandmother,an Emmett Therapist and Yoga teacher from Sunny Townsville Nth Qld.. I began practicing Yoga after finishing up a 30 year career in the fitness industry due to exhaustion and Stress. After 18 months of practicing Yoga I completed my 200hr YTT with Santosha on Nusa Lembongan (Bali). I started teaching yoga on return and soon realised I wanted to learn even more.. Sept 2018 I completed my 300hr YTT in Bali with Pranaluz Conscious Living . I have been trained in Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga and have a passion for Yin Yoga and meditation practices. I found yoga to be so much more than a form of exercise or stretching routine. In my experience Yoga is a form of recalibrating your mind breath and body and the evolving of one self into a Calmer more mobile and stronger version. Yoga brings a sense of well-being and genuine happiness... I teach from Lighten Up studio and The Hub Strand Fitness in Townsville Nth Qld Australia.... join me !

Josh Wood (USA) currently lives somewhere in the world
Hi my name is Joshua, I have been practicing yoga for around 2 years now. I started doing it when i got into rock climbing, they offered some vinyasa classes at the gym i went to. It helped a lot with breathing and mobility, which are important in climbing and i realized in life as well. When i started doing yoga it was more for the work out and a good stretch before i would go climb but the more i got into it i realized how little i actually knew about what was inside my body and how my breathing helped to regulate it. I think yoga is important to me because it means taking time for myself to breathe and really look inward, it means letting go of all my problems for an hour and just being in the moment. It has also helped me to stop worrying about what other people are doing or where they are at in life and just focus on myself and my own path.
Nat Jefferis (Australia) currently lives and teaches in Melbourne, South Gippsland, Australia.
I can't remember my first yoga class. While I know it was at a gym & I was super confused about all the weird names for the poses, there was nothing magical about why I started yoga. The magic came much later. Before yoga became a significant part of my life, I was angry, irritable, dissatisfied & I had no idea why. Yoga has taught me about the importance of presence. How, when we pause, we can take time to respond rather than react. I have become more self-aware of my body, but also of the language I use towards myself & others. I find myself becoming more comfortable in stillness & quiet - just being. There is so much more joy in my life now & how could I not want to share that with others!? Now with 500 hours of teacher training, I have been teaching for 2 and a half years & what's amazing is, I never stop learning & growing. I want people to understand the power of moving, no matter what it looks like. Yoga is not just about the asana. I teach it & I love it. But what I love most is when students start to understand that it's so much bigger than asana. It's how you interact with the world & yourself.

Stephanie de Courcy-Hughes (UK), currently lives and teaches in the UK
Hey, I’m Stephanie, and I am currently living and teaching yoga just north of London, the UK. I also run workshops dedicated to the Goddess, the divine feminine, where we learn to love our planet and nurture ourselves (a much-needed practice in this hectic world). I completed my 200 Hours with The Peaceful Warriors in Canggu, Bali, in November 2018 where I met Analu and Jono and quickly decided to do my 300 hour in Costa Rica with Pranaluz just a few months later. I have always been aware of yoga, having a grandmother and uncle who are both yoga teachers, but I found my own practice around 7 years ago. I am now building a career teaching yoga, having left my work in mental health services mid- 2018. I hope to support peoples’ mental health through yoga, and I advocate self-love and kindness as a tool for healing. I teach Hatha and Vinyasa Flow, as well as Yin and meditation.

Therese Lind Bjellder (SWEDEN), currently lives and teaches in Sweden.
With a background as a professional Dancer and Musical Theatre Artist in Sweden, I found Yoga about 6 years ago. During my 5 years living in New York City yoga became my getaway in the energetic busy town, or rather a place for me to come home, back to myself, to ground and heal. As much as yoga helped me to heal from the repetitive damage on my body from many years of dancing and performing on stage several nights a week, yoga helped me finding balance in my life and heal my body as well as my soul. By turning the attention from outside, from the audience point of view or the mirrors in the rehearsing rooms, yoga helped me to look more inwards and open up to more space for gratitude and joy, which brought more meaning into my life. Finding through yoga that all we need in life is already within us. Yoga helped me find the tools to access the infinite amount of love we have in our inner universe. After my 300 hours YTT with Pranaluz in Costa Rica in spring 2019 I moved back from New York to Stockholm where I am now working as a Lifestyle Concierge at a hotel in Stockholm. There I teach yoga for hotel guests and I also teach yoga at two other studios in Stockholm, mostly Vinyasa Flow and Yin yoga. I believe in the light and the strength we together with others can create. I am passionate about the power and energy that can be created in meetings with people and the way we are all connected. And I want to be in a place where I can contribute to that, and to make people feel seen and heard. It all starts from within and I want to help stoke the fire that lives inside of us all and to help others find their own truth, to be able to live to our full capacity. By learning from the philosophy of yoga and using the many tools yoga brings us we can be more tolerant and acceptive towards ourselves and towards others as well as more truthful to ourselves and find more courage to start living our dreams.
