Klara Kalkusova

Klara is a Yoga teacher, reflexologist and body worker and she’s a student of Tantra & integrated sexuality. Klara is deeply interested in neuroscience, psycho-somatic connections, nature, philosophy, poetry and music. All of these have a great influence on her teachings. She chooses her words carefully when guiding people into their inner worlds and her approach to teaching is very down to earth.

Klara’s journey in spirituality, energy work and physical movement started at an early age and she begun professionally training in those fields in 2007 and never stopped since. 

She’s been a practicing reflexologist since 2010 and teaching Yoga internationally since 2014. She continues studying with her teachers consistently in the fields of Yoga, emotional anatomy and body work. 

The most recent studies have been in traditional Shakta Tantra and more modern, scientific studies of sexuality and pleasure. She believes we need both : the ancient and the modern and she weaves them together through embodiment practices, giving each individual the freedom to have their own unique experience and better connection to themselves. 

She teaches what she practices and Yoga and tantra has been making her life more balanced since 2012 when she took on Yoga as her daily practice.

Klara has worked as a Yoga teacher in India, Nepal, Cambodia and has been based in Iceland since 2016, teaching at Reykjavik Yoga and Yoga Shala. 

Bjarney Hinriksdóttir

Bjarney (Baddý) is a Movement/Embodied Yoga teacher and a Compassion-based Mindfulness teacher.

She has practiced yoga and meditation since 2008. Since then her yoga practice has evolved into an embodied, movement-based practice, less focused on asanas and more focused on moving with awareness. For her this practice is one of practicing being present in the body and cultivating an open heart … A path to a more wholehearted life.

She started teaching yoga in 2015 after gradutating from a 240 hrs foundation teacher training with Cat Kabira – Yoga and Energetics in Bali. Few months later she found herself back with Cat in Ubud, to complete her 160 hours Advanced Yoga Teacher Training. 

In March 2019, Baddý completed a 300 hour, Advanced Intensive Yoga Teacher Training with Julie Martin (Brahmani Yoga) and in June 2019 she graduated from her two years Mindfulness Teacher Training Program, taught by the internationally renowned mindfulness teachers Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach.

Since March 2022 she is a graduate from Michaela Boehm’s Wild Woman’s CircleTeacher Training,  offering set of tools that enables her to powerfully explore the realms of women’s practices and lead women’s circles.

Baddý has been involved in different styles of dance for most of her life, including salsa and bellydancing and now, with her latest passion in pole dancing, she has become more and more interested in incorporating exploration and sensual movement into her teachings, with the intention of leading people into feeling alive in their bodies.
