“My legacy in this world is not the work that I have done but how I have made people feel. To know that the work of Yoga Ed. improves how people feel physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially affects their ability to teach, learn, and thrive as human beings, inspires me to wake up and come to “work” everyday.”
PRONOUNS: SHE / HER
Brynne Caleda began her journey with Yoga Ed. in 2005 as a top-performing trainer under the leadership of Tara Guber, offering in-person yoga education and training. Recognizing the importance of Yoga Ed.’s mission, Brynne made equity and access top priorities when she took ownership of the company in 2013. By spearheading the use of online platforms, Brynne strategically leveraged the company’s powerful results in the United States—as studied and vetted by Time Magazine, Harvard, Tulane and more—to expand Yoga Ed.’s impact across the globe.
For the past 20 years and counting, Brynne’s entrepreneurial mindset has created and scaled multiple successes in wellness education. These include the non-profit Stretch Your Imagination, which brings sustainable yoga programming to Hawaii’s schools; the digital media company Omolulu, which produced several popular wellness programs, including an Amazon top-rated children’s yoga DVD; and other ventures that highlight Brynne’s parallel expertise in education, yoga and values-based business practices.
Brynne holds a Master’s in Education from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, with a focus on the physical, mental and emotional effects of Yoga on middle school youth, maintains Registered Yoga Teacher status with Yoga Alliance, and most importantly, finds joy in being mom to Reef, Kai and Cruz, alongside Dad Alex.
