Alysha has been practicing yoga since her childhood, growing up in India where she would join in on the classes that her mother would do from home just for some fun. It was only in her teens that she turned to yoga as a tool to help her work through the anxiety she was facing. By committing to a daily practice, Alysha found great stillness and inner strength that she used to navigate her way through high school in the UK. During the pandemic, she turned to yoga even more and progressed to new heights both physically and mentally. When starting university, Alysha knew she wanted to share yoga, a special tool that all students can use to combat stress. This prompted her to complete her 200-hour teacher training with HYV in Greece, where she experienced a taste of what life could be as a yoga teacher, one that she is very excited to lead.

Hannah Feltham was born in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador, Canada. Her background is primarily in dance, however, it was while she was training at the The Ailey School in New York City that her passion for Pilates and Yoga began. When she experienced low back pain for a short period of time, she sought physiotherapy in NYC and they told her that her core needed strengthening and to give Pilates a go. Understanding the mechanics and the benefits it had on her body, assisted her dancing immensely. She wanted to dive deeper into the method and received her Pilates Mat Certification through Linda Farrell in NYC.

After graduating from the The Ailey School, she began teaching in NYC with New York Optimum Performance as an Independent Contractor. She also taught at the Savitri Studio on the Upper East Side run by Jessica Cadden Osborne as well as YogaWorks. Hannah landed a job performing in Osaka Japan at Universal Studios and was there for two years and she was a guest teacher with lululemon in Osaka. In her second year, she became interested in getting her 200 RYT Yoga Certification through the Vancouver Sky Studio under the guidance of Yu Slater.

She has discovered an amazing appreciation for both Pilates and Yoga, as the two methods have benefited her as a professional dancer.
