Hi, my name is Celest. I’m a yoga teacher and my two greatest loves are movement and people. My focus is on getting people who love yoga to do cool things with their bodies and feel happy in their lives. This is my biggest passion. Learning how to move in fun, interesting, creative ways whilst still learning the art of happiness. I danced when I was a kid, did capoeira as a young adult and got a BSc in Physiotherapy. But nothing lights me up like teaching!
