Ella Trotter
Vinyasa, Hatha, Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Meditation, Reiki

Ella’s passion for yoga started at an early age in New Zealand and Australia where she explored many different styles of yoga to compliment a busy working lifestyle. Her worldly curiosity and desire to learn led her on an exploration, travelling, volunteering, and living in Holistic communities around the world. Feeling the calling to India, and the time to deepen her yoga practice, she  embarked on a 200h YTTC and ended up staying in India helping the running of Upaya Yoga School in Goa. Since then, Ella has been teaching all around the world, studying and practicing, and has now settled in Bali to run Yoga Teacher Trainings and Yoga Retreats.

Teaching yoga to all ages and various health conditions, Ella saw how yoga could provide healing and transformation to her students and naturally was drawn to the Therapeutic Trainings of Kaya Yoga Therapy where she completed and assisted in the 300h training.

Ella’s unique teaching style could be defined as mindfully connecting movement with breath whether it be a flowing vinyasa class or a gentle restorative session. She is passionate about meditation and finding different ways to calm the mind and connect to the present moment.

Ella is also a practicing Reiki Healer, helping to bring balance to the energy centers of the body.

When she’s not teaching or practicing yoga, Ella enjoys spending time on the beach with her dog and enjoying a coconut with friends – enjoying the beauty Bali has to offer.

Stephanie Parent
E-RYT-200, RYT-500
Vinyasa, Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Philosophy, Advanced Yoga Asana and Pranayama, Manual Therapy, Nutrition

Stephanie was initially drawn to yoga for its physical benefits – but it didn’t take long before she started noticing a positive effect on her mind and body as well. With each passing class, she felt her stress and tension melt away. Her mind became clearer and more stable. It was then that she realized that  yoga was not just a sport, it was a lifestyle.

Having worked in the fashion industry for 10 years, Stephanie understood the struggle and stress inherent to the corporate grind – and having experienced the transformative benefits of yoga, she felt a profound desire to share them with others.

Her first stop was Rishikesh, India, where she completed a 500-hour teacher training program. During this training course, she discovered yoga therapy, and instantly knew that this was her calling.

She then acquired the necessary certifications to officially become a Yoga Therapist. She infuses her teaching with classic yogic philosophy, giving students the tools they need to practice on their own in a safe and well-informed way.
