A 1500hr Senior Yoga Instructor, Minded Yoga Therapist, Experienced Teacher Trainer and Minded Institute supervisor, Bryony is founder of Be-Yoga and with 10 years full-time teaching experience, she brings a wealth of knowledge and skill to the studio.
With a regular yoga practice since drama school in the 90s, Bryony found the breathing techniques and the discipline of yoga enhanced the experience of performance. Moving to Brighton in 2002 and discovering hot yoga was when the practice became a daily, transformative experience. Teacher training followed and since 2008 Bryony has had the opportunity to teach yoga full time to many different students of all ages and abilities.
Ever a student and developing her teaching skills with further training and continual, evolving practice, Bryony currently trains with Shiva Rea in India, London and Greece and works as a supervisor with Heather Mason on the 500hr professional Yoga Therapy course at The Minded Institute. Also qualified in 2010 with Jo Manuel at The Special Yoga Centre – Teaching Yoga To Children and Yoga for the Special child, Bryony has completed various immersions with the Jivamukti school of yoga and trained with Judith Laseter in restorative yoga.
Bryony worked as a tutor for 2 years on the Yogahaven 200 hrs Teacher Training course, she continues to mentor new teachers and enjoys being part of the UK’s growing yoga community.
Balancing dynamic practice and a regular and dedicated Yin yoga practice, Bryony passionately believes that the practice of yoga is for all of us and that there is a style of yoga to suit everybody – at every stage of life.

Emma is a musician, massage therapist, writer and full-time Yoga teacher. Having trained as a 200hr RYT with Esther Ekhart in Europe and a further 500hrs advanced training in India with Julie Martin, her thirst for knowledge is ever increasing, and she has continued to learn with acclaimed teachers such as Kathryn Budig, Doug Swenson and Shiva Rea.
With a love for flow-style yoga, it is this aspect of creating a ‘moving meditation’ that intrigues Emma the most. She is passionate about creating effective sequences that lead students through a journey, and believes that there is definitely no ‘one size fits all’ approach to the physical practice. Emma has also trained to teach children’s yoga, and restorative yoga after finding the practice transformational both physically and mentally, and feels that Yoga has been a hugely empowering and healing journey so far….
Emma leads kirtan evenings (music and singing), writes for various health and wellbeing websites, and is on the organising committee for the Brighton Yoga Festival. She loves sharing knowledge about Yoga philosophy and how we can take our practice ‘off the mat’. As well as contributing to these websites and online magazines, Emma also runs her own blog full of healthy recipes, philosophy, tips for postures, and much more….
