Yvonne DelosReyes was born and raised in sunny California, USA. The only girl and youngest of six children, she was raised by her father and her five older brothers. At the age of ten, Yvonne discovered Polynesian dance as her saving grace; competing, performing, and teaching for nearly 10 years.
In college, Yvonne continued to explore other types of dance and forms of movement. This was also the beginning of her practice with Hatha yoga, which led her to study Bikram and Vinyasa.
In her mid-twenties she made a move to the Big Apple aka New York City where she worked as a private cook for world renowned Photographer, Andrew Zuckerman in his studio in Chelsea. Shortly after, she traded her knife for the yoga mat; and in 2010, she completed her training in Vinyasa yoga with Yoga to the People NYC and became a Yoga Alliance Certified Instructor.
In August of 2010 Yvonne’s life changed dramatically after a surreal trip to Brazil. She then returned to New York City with a new dream to teach yoga and surf the Bahian coast. This dream brought her to a small paradise beach town called Itacaré in the state of Bahia where she has lived for the past 6 years. Here she taught regular group and private lessons to all ages. Partnering with local surf schools and guesthouses offering visitors a holistic approach to the Itacaré experience. Featured in Swiss Air Magazine October 2014 for her private yoga and chef services for luxury villas on the edges of town.
Yvonne is currently living in between Brooklyn, New York and Itacaré, Brazil. She's teaching group and private lessons to all ages, beginner to intermediate levels and hosting regular surf and yoga retreats in Itacaré.
