Polly has 10+ years’ experience in the charity sector designing and leading local and national work with a focus around combating loneliness and isolation. Working with older people, with carers and across the youth sector the aim of her work has been to remove barriers in order to help people connect, fulfil potential and live enriched lives.
Polly’s Yoga journey started over 10 years ago and it has played an important role in her life ever since. She deepened her love and knowledge of Yoga when spending time in Nepal in 2019 and went on to train with Bewell (YTT200).
Polly is committed to making Yoga make sense for more people through making classes accessible and creative and teaching with the generosity she learned when training with Bewell. (Her words not ours <3 Thanks Polly!) She particularly enjoys helping people discover or rediscover Yoga.
She is particularly interested in connecting diverse communities of people with the benefits of Yoga and is passionate about taking Yoga into spaces and settings where it’s less commonly found.
Polly is also pursuing Counselling Training. With a passion for Yin Yoga and Embodiment work she is interested in holding space for people on and off the mat; enabling people to understand and accept their bodies and minds more fully in order to live more whole hearted lives.
Originally from Houston, Texas, Tahni is a cultural anthropologist, artist, and yogi who currently calls Brussels home. From a young age, movement has been part of her life in varying forms—from gymnastics, to dance, and most recently, yoga, which she has been practicing since 2012. In early 2019, she decided to explore what life would look like if she maintained a daily yoga practice. This commitment helped her discover that daily yoga grounded her both mentally and physically, which inspired her to take on yoga teacher training with BeWell in 2020 so that she could share her practice. She has studied yoga in countless studios around the globe, practicing different styles and learning from many different teachers.
In addition to teaching challenging classes for strength and advanced postures, Tahni enjoys working one-on-one with new teachers or committed yogis who are seeking to enhance their home practice, build strength, or improve the skills and confidence needed for teaching. She does so by relying on her experience in owning small businesses; mentorship and community facilitation; and methodologies for understanding and acting on human cultural and behavioral insight.
When she is not teaching yogis or practicing yoga herself, Tahni also works as a professional photographer and human culture and behavior researcher. In her free time she loves to be in the sun near the sea, paint, share food and libations with loved ones, or be around animals.

Joseph is a neuromuscular therapist, with 10+ years
experience in private practice. Joseph is an experienced online educator and a skilled practitioner who offers great insight into the anatomy section of our course.
During a sabbatical in India, Joseph's interest in yoga - especially Yin - grew. Now he facilitates myofascial release workshops and trains yoga teachers in anatomy. Joseph has an interest in traditional medicine, men’s work and the power of group circles. Topics will range from the fight /flight nervous systems reaction to pain, gate theory and pathophysiology to the advice he has had from the yoga teachers and healers he has worked with.
Joseph calls upon his years of experience to assess posture and movement, educate his clients on specifically what would be of great benefit for them to focus on outside of their sessions. And then working with pressure points, that are holding their over worked muscles into negative patterns of movement.
He utilizes simple tools such as foam rollers and tennis balls to empower his workshop attendees to be able to do their own soft tissue release techniques and achieve a positive change in their movement.
Giulia has been exposed to sport and movement since a very young age. Trading as Giuliacroyoga, Giulia has been practicing yoga and acroyoga since 2014, when she immediately fell in love with the playfulness of acroyoga and the mindfulness of yoga.
Her passion and dedication made her travel the world, exploring different yoga styles, completing three acroyoga teacher trainings and becoming a 500hrs RYT in late 2018. Yoga is for Giulia a true lifestyle, and a way of being that really goes beyond the asana practice; AcroYoga is for her a really powerful discipline that combines strength, body awareness, mutual trust and most importantly, respect for the others and the self.
Certified and trained in Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Aerial, Hatha, Yin and AcroYoga, Giulia mostly teaches dynamic styles. Her classes offer a good balance between challenge and softness, with a particular attention on alignment and surely a good dose of sweat.
During her extensive travels in India, South-East Asia, Pacific, Central America and Europe, she had the opportunity to practice and meet yogis and acroyogis from all over the world, enriching her practice and teaching style. Her wish is to continue exploring and learning from different disciplines, schools and inspiring humans. All the while, growing as a yoga and acroyoga teacher and movement practitioner.
