REYN REED | FOUNDER
Reyn found yoga through her love of movement and resonance. A life long ballet dancer and free diver, yoga was link and eventually became the yolk between the two. Dance teaches alignment, body awareness, flexibility, flow, movement quality, and the dualities of strength and softening. As free diving teaches presence, calm, breath awareness, body awareness and so much more. Yoga channels elements of both in a harmonious way, finding connection and synergy between the graceful practices on both the land and in the sea.
In 2003, Reyn began her studies of yoga in New Orleans with Bruno Teyssandier. The New School University, Parsons School of Design and Eugene Lang College brought Reyn to the island of Manhattan. During her time in NYC, yoga became the rudder for life under the instruction of Isauro Fernandez, Lorren Bassett, KayKay Clivo, Yola Romeo and so many other wonderful teachers. After graduating and traveling, she made it back to New Orleans and received her RYT200 as student of Geoffrey Roniger and Richard Rosen. In 2016 Reyn continued her studies as a student as well as teacher at Open Space Yoga in Oahu with Mary Bastien and Tehlia Woosley where she dives deeper into pranayama, yoga nidra and mediation, not only to nourish herself, but to bring back to the yoga community in New Orleans. Her classes emphasize a series of dualities, in the spirit of honoring the balances of life: strength & flexibility, energy & calm, movement & stillness, inhale&exhale.
