Brynne Caleda


Thirteen years ago, fresh out of college and interning in Washington DC, Brynne Caleda learned more about how to support her mental, emotional, and physical health through the practice of yoga than she ever did in her 16 years of formal education.

This revelation was a light bulb moment for her, and Brynne decided to set aside her developing career in International Relations for a much bigger mission: to bring life skills through the practice of yoga to children and teens during school hours. Passionate that schools will one day be seedbeds of health and happiness, Brynne has made it her legacy to share yoga education with the world.

Brynne Caleda, M.Ed., E-RYT is a leader in the field of yoga education. As CEO of Yoga Ed., Brynne champions the efficacy of innovative, evidence-based yoga programs for schools to establish lifelong foundations for student’s fitness, wellness, and productivity. Over the past decade, Brynne has worked closely with educators, health professionals, and parents to enrich school communities with yoga tools to more authentically and effectively teach to their students and children. A pioneer of yoga education in Hawaii, Brynne is also the founder of Stretch Your Imagination, a non-profit that creates sustainable yoga programs for Hawaii’s schools. When not at home in paradise with her two year old son, you can find Brynne leading trainings and empowering educators to integrate yoga into schools across Europe, Asia, and the United States.
