Meet The Founders
Co-founder of Advaya Initiative and Advaya Magazine, Christabel’s main area of interest is the use of yoga for personal and ecological healing as well as activism.
Christabel is a full time Vinyasa Krama yoga teacher in London and has just completed her Masters at SOAS in the Traditions of Yoga and Meditation.
She is also doing another four-year teacher training under Colin Dunsmuir to deepen and expand her knowledge and practice.
Co-founder of Advaya Initiative and Advaya Magazine, Ruby Reed is an environmentalist, ashtangi, yoga teacher and adventurer with a passion for the ocean. She has been practicing yoga since her teens and ashtanga for the last fouryears, and is soon to make her second trip to study with Sharath in Mysore.
She is happiest when in water, and spent a lot of time beneath sea level last year teaching scuba diving in the Andaman Islands. She is a big believer in the power of the breath as the key to most things in life.
She produces the events and edits Advaya Magazine, and when not dreaming of Advaya’s next activities she works as an independent art consultant and strategist, helping start ups expand their remit through new initiatives.
She has a background in sales and development and MAs from the Courtauld and Edinburgh University.
