emily terceira

founder + lead yoga instructor

i’m emily terceira, and i am so excited for the opportunity to connect with you. i hope to empower you to be the best version of yourself, in physical body, growing mind and authentic spirit.

 

i found yoga while studying dance in university – in a world defined by rigidity and perfection at the barre, i craved freedom and creativity on the mat. yoga has taught me compassion – that we are in constant evolution, always reaching + growing past our edges. if we allow it, the physical asana practice goes much further than the movement on the mat.

 

i am trained in vinyasa, prenatal, restorative, yoga nidra, kids yoga, and stand-up paddle board yoga. i recently completed my 300hr advanced yoga certification with arrow yoga, for a full 500ryt certification. in my classes you can expect to dance, play and explore your way through thoughtful and dynamic sequencing. while the dancer in me craves creative transitions, there is always the invitation to listen to personal body structure and inner creativity.

 

salt yoga was created out of my desire to inspire passion, growth and authenticity within. thank you for choosing to practice with us.

riley macdonald

yoga instructor

i’m riley and i cannot wait to share my love of yoga with you. i began my yoga practice in 2016 after craving a connection with my physical body once again, which led me on a path to so much more. what i’ve discovered and felt being a student is what i love to share with you in class.

 

you will find my classes to be thoughtful, dynamic and encouraging. i completed my 200RYT in 2020 - but my love for learning and growing as both a student and a teacher continues on each day.

taeya dent

yoga instructor + social media management

hi, i’m taeya and i am so thrilled to be joining you on your mats! i started my personal yoga practice in 2017, at a time where i was looking for clarity. a short time after practicing i felt inspired to share what i had, and continue to learn on and off my mat. i completed my 200hr ytt in may 2018 and participated in the shamana method training in november 2020. my classes represent the practice as a whole - the journey of discovery.

 

as i lead you on your mat you can expect to be encouraged to tune inwards, not only mentally but also physically, using our time to explore and have fun. i challenge you to find an inner awareness of the mind and of the body and to lead your practice with an open mind and an open heart.

ali willett

yoga instructor

i'm ali and i am so excited to finally teach for salt yoga! similar to other salt yoga instructors, i found yoga as a way to compliment years of dance training. i have been practicing yoga for over ten years but found emily back in 2019 and she encouraged me to pursue my 200 ytt as well as a prenatal yoga certification, which were both completed in 2020 (days before the world shut down). i have been leading virtual and in-person classes for my full time employer ever since.

 

as a busy working mom, yoga is a priority to stay grounded and reconnect with myself. my yoga "style" has evolved over time but i am currently enjoying juicy stretches and slow-ish (yet challenging!) flows. i can't wait to connect with you on the mat.

cassandra mcphee

yoga instructor

hi -- i'm cassandra. like a fated connection, i made my way into my first yoga class at around 12 years old, and was astonished by the peace i was able to cultivate within. 

 

i completed my 200 hour ytt in costa rica in 2021, and became a reiki master in 2022. This year I will complete my bachelors degree in divinity from the university of metaphysical sciences and will move on to obtaining my masters degree in metaphysics. 

i hope to invoke a thoughtful, peaceful and receptive state in you, that will allow blessings to effortlessly flow throughout your body and freely throughout your life. you will feel connected to your mind, body + soul, with a special focus on foundations + alignment in my classes. expect to experience a little bit of magic together.

ziria cuevas noriega

yoga instructor

hola, i'm ziria! i found yoga at the age of 18 when i went to a free gym yoga class, and though i did not have a clue what i was doing, i left with a sense of calm and peace. since then i've completed two 200hr trainings, one in india and one with noah maze + rocky heron. additionally, i am prenatal yoga certified and have recently begun my journey towards a 300 hr certification with jason crandell.

 

my classes are approachable + fun, and invite students to get out of their heads and out of the "seriousness" life throws at us and simply move.

natalie lightbourne

yoga instructor

hiya! i'm nat and i am thrilled to be a part of the salt team! i began my yoga journey at 18 and was amazed by the positive changes it brought to my body and mind.

 

in june 2023, i earned my 200hr teacher training certification in ashtanga and vinyasa in bali, then jumped into teaching donation-based classes at salt yoga that same summer! i currently live in london, where i continue to practice and teach, and have also completed a 50hr teacher training in the rocket style.

 

when you join me on the mat, expect a creative and fun practice that incorporates elements from the rocket and ashtanga series, offering a dynamic experience while grounding ourselves through focused breath work.

jenn knight

wellness coordinator

i'm jenn and i have loved salt yoga since its creation in 2021. salt yoga classes allow me the freedom to explore my love of movement and discipline on the mat, surrounded by the beauty of bermuda and led by amazing teachers. as wellness coordinator, i am your first point of contact for any questions that you may have regarding our salt yoga classes!

 

i first discovered yoga as a way to complement my dancing. i studied dance at university and canada's national ballet school, and have spent the past 12 years teaching ballet to all ages and abilities in canada, bermuda and the uk. i have managed dance programs and studios for many years and hope to bring my experience and love for all things movement to the salt yoga team.
