Bird is founded by multidisciplinary artist and [500+ RYT] yoga teacher Simone Engelen. She has been traveling and teaching since 2014 in remote areas all over the world. On her own path of yoga and through recovery from addiction, she has gained knowledge from various teachings like The Functional Approach to Yoga as developed by Paul & Suzee Grilley, and The Yoga of 12-Step Recovery [Y12SR], as developed by Nikki Myers.

Simone teaches from the heart, putting great emphasis on each unique student
and their continuing growth.
