KPJAYI Level 1 Authorized Teacher
"Shae Bryant is the best yoga teacher I have ever worked with. She makes the often-intimidating Ashtanga yoga practice accessible to all bodies and all ages. She teaches with skill, compassion, grace and humor, and has inspired me to take my practice to a level I never would reached on my own. Highly recommended." -Gayla Zoz
It is my greatest honor to share these incredible yogic teachings with others!
I work with students privately - both in-person and virtually - and have been doing so full time for 15 years!
Beginners to the practice are my very favorite or those who want to truly deepen their spiritual experience.
My teaching focuses on becoming more conscious through the practice while also paying attention to anatomical and individual needs.
I work with any age or ability. All that is required is a willingness to go within!
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is my own personal, daily yoga practice. It is my love, my passion, my sadhana, my life path. My only Ashtanga yoga teachers have been within the lineage of Shri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India.
Laura Spaulding, (Authorized Level II), was my first and primary Ashtanga teacher as I traveled to NYC, Mysore and Goa, India in order to learn the system as accurately as possible under the Jois family (Pattabhi Jois, Saraswati, Manju, and Sharath). Through Guruji's (Pattabhi Jois) enlightened adjustments, conferences, classes, and example I have been inspired to continue this 8-limb path of yoga, incorporating my practice into all parts of my life.
Sharath Rangaswamy Jois, Guruji's grandson, has been my teacher since Guruji's passing. He invited me to attend his Authorization Level 1 Teacher Training over the summer of 2010 and has been instructing me through the Intermediate Series of Ashtanga yoga.
I have also studied under Noah Williams, Tim Miller, Chuck Miller, David Keil, and David Williams of the Ashtanga Yoga lineage.

Shae with Sharath and Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India
"It only took one yoga class with Shae to get hooked on her unique style and flare. Shae is not just another fitness guru; her approach is holistic, intelligent, and individualized. I am always amazed with how much I take away from each session. Shae's vibrant, joyful attitude is contagious and I find myself renewed and revitalized after working with her.
As a nurse I spend much of my time caring for others, and my sessions with Shae allow me to take care of myself physically, mentally, and emotionally. Shae is a gem and working with her is truly a gift."
