Meet Our Yoga Teachers

Traditionally, the role of a yoga teacher is being of service to the student. 

The Yoga teacher plays a vital role in shaping the learning experience of the student, stepping into the role as a guide, mentor and classroom supporter.

Our yoga teachers at Bloom have each undertaken more than 350 hours of study; their own personal practice (sadhana) forms the foundation from which they share their practice with you.
